    ServiceNow Targets Banking, Telco to Reach $10 Billion Sales Goal

    (Bloomberg) -- ServiceNow Inc. plans to release software for finance and telecommunications clients, adopting an industry-solutions strategy in its bid to reach a goal of $10 billion in annual revenue.Deloitte Consulting LLP will be the initial leading partner for the banking product, helping the software maker package and sell the workflow tools to clients, ServiceNow said Monday in a statement. Accenture Plc will be the lead partner for the telecommunications software.New Chief Executive Officer Bill McDermott has pledged to build the Santa Clara, California-based company into a software “juggernaut.” While plans for the industry strategy preceded the October announcement of McDermott’s hiring after a decade in charge of German software giant SAP SE, he has maintained the sales goal of his predecessor, John Donahoe. In the crowded landscape of cloud-computing companies, ServiceNow has long promised to organize tedious parts of office life, like setting up a help desk for IT operations and bringing on board new employees.ServiceNow said the industry approach will help banks modernize their internal processes and ultimately provide more efficient customer service.“In banking, we’ve seen disruption from fintechs around giving customers a better experience,” Marshall Tyler, ServiceNow’s vice president of industry solutions, said in an interview. “Banks have reacted with, ‘let me give my customers a better user interface,’ but are starting to realize it’s the operations behind the user interface that can improve experiences.”For telecommunications customers, ServiceNow aims to help clients maximize availability and quality of service by “proactively anticipating issues and addressing them quickly.” Part of the rationale is helping clients modernize their internal systems and processes amid the transition to fifth-generation, or 5G, wireless service.Banking and telecoms are just the beginning of ServiceNow’s industry verticals strategy. The company promised to bring specific solutions to health care, manufacturing, media and technology “in the near future.”ServiceNow has expanded into new markets, such as human resources, to maintain an annual sales growth rate of at least 31% since going public in 2012. The company, which is scheduled to report fourth-quarter results Wednesday, is projected to generate $3.45 billion this fiscal year, according to data compiled by Bloomberg. The shares have gained 61% in the past 12 months, closing Monday at $307.63.To contact the author of this story: Nico Grant in San Francisco at ngrant20@bloomberg.netTo contact the editor responsible for this story: Andrew Pollack at apollack1@bloomberg.net, Molly SchuetzFor more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.comSubscribe now to stay ahead with the most trusted business news source.©2020 Bloomberg L.P.

    Facebook content moderators required to sign PTSD forms

    Content moderators working at a European facility for Facebook have been required to sign a form explicitly acknowledging that their job could cause post-traumatic stress disorder, according to documentation and employee confirmation obtained by the Financial Times. The facility, which is operated by global professional services company Accenture, hosts roughly 400 content moderators who trawl through hundreds of disturbing images and videos — ranging from bestiality and child abuse to hate speech, self-harm and terrorism — across Facebook and Instagram every day. The moderators’ jobs entail making granular decisions about why each image or video is objectionable.

    Qorvo and Skyworks Weigh Bids for Broadcom’s RF Chip Unit

    (Bloomberg) -- Semiconductor makers Qorvo Inc. and Skyworks Solutions Inc. are weighing bids for Broadcom Inc.’s wireless-chip business, which could fetch about $10 billion in a sale, according to people familiar with the matter.Other potential buyers could be interested, said the people, who asked to not be identified because the matter isn’t public. The unit makes radio-frequency, or RF, chips.A final decision hasn’t been made and Qorvo and Skyworks may opt not to proceed with offers, they said.A representative for Broadcom declined to comment. Representatives for Qorvo and Skyworks didn’t respond to requests for comment.Broadcom on Thursday disclosed new agreements to provide components for Apple Inc. devices for several years. The disclosure lets potential acquirers of the radio frequency unit know that they’re buying into a substantial business relationship with Cupertino, California-based Apple.The potential sale comes as Broadcom Chief Executive Officer Hock Tan -- fresh off a $10.7 billion takeover of Symantec Corp.’s security software unit -- seeks to focus on businesses with strong share in profitable markets that don’t require excessive investment. He’s jettisoning components that don’t fit that plan. Broadcom agreed to sell a cybersecurity services business this month to Accenture Plc.The RF unit’s chips are used to filter and amplify radio frequency signals. Its filters also let wireless communications systems support a large number of subscribers at the same time by ensuring that voice and data streams don’t interfere with each other.The Wall Street Journal reported in December that Broadcom was seeking a buyer for the division.To contact the reporters on this story: Ed Hammond in New York at ehammond12@bloomberg.net;Liana Baker in New York at lbaker75@bloomberg.net;Ian King in San Francisco at ianking@bloomberg.netTo contact the editors responsible for this story: Liana Baker at lbaker75@bloomberg.net, ;Alistair Barr at abarr18@bloomberg.net, Matthew Monks, Michael HythaFor more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.comSubscribe now to stay ahead with the most trusted business news source.©2020 Bloomberg L.P.

    NYC Startups Celebrate City’s Tech Cred by Ringing NYSE Bell

    (Bloomberg) -- A handful of local technology startups gathered to ring the opening bell at the New York Stock Exchange Thursday, celebrating the city’s evolution as an international tech hub in recent years.“Ten years ago, tech in New York was people who would meet in Central Park and play soccer and now tech in New York is ringing the bell in the stock exchange,” said Serkan Piantino, co-founder and chief executive officer of Spell, an artificial intelligence company in New York.New York’s tech industry accounted for 333,000 jobs as of 2019, and counts more than 9,000 startups, according to Tech:NYC’s annual report. In addition to home-grown companies, the giants of Silicon Valley are increasingly expanding in the Big Apple. Alphabet Inc.’s Google, which already has more than 8,000 employees in New York could surpass 14,000 by 2028, while Facebook Inc. intends to double its headcount in the city. Many of the biggest tech companies are gobbling up real estate in Manhattan, seeking to tap the city’s highly skilled and diverse workforce.@TechNYC celebrates tech startups in NYC https://t.co/CBrUHdTsaJ— NYSE (@NYSE) January 23, 2020 Companies find that they can recruit people in New York for many different disciplines that are becoming fundamental to the industry, such as artificial intelligence, data science, and computer vision, said Ro Gupta, CEO of Carmera Inc., which makes real-time maps for autonomous driving.It’s that kind of growth and opportunity that has made the tech industry in New York “incredibly bullish” about its future, said Julie Samuels, executive director of Tech:NYC, a network of more than 800 tech companies in the city. However, it’s becoming harder to hire mid-level and senior employees in the industry, according to a 2019 survey by Tech:NYC and Accenture Plc.Tech has become a part of the city’s identity, said Aaron Block, co-founder of MetaProp NYC LLC, a venture capital firm focused on real estate technology. “It’s great to see New York embrace this in a way that is going to continue to fuel the growth of the industry locally,” Block said.To contact the reporter on this story: Nikitha Sattiraju in New York at nsattiraju@bloomberg.netTo contact the editor responsible for this story: Molly Schuetz at mschuetz9@bloomberg.netFor more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.comSubscribe now to stay ahead with the most trusted business news source.©2020 Bloomberg L.P.
