ServiceNow is one of the fastest-growing companies in the world. ServiceNow is not without competitors, though, so how do you know whether it’s worth the investment to learn ServiceNow skills or become certified?
Tech One IT provides ServiceNow solutions for some of the nation’s largest enterprises through our IT Solutions, IT Staffing division, and also as part of our Tech One Apprenticeship Program (TAP). The opinions expressed here are based on our experience.
The Credibility Of ServiceNow
ServiceNow is currently leading the pack of ITSM software, with a 39.6% market share (https://www.appsruntheworld.com). With continued growth year-over-year, the software has been implemented by many Fortune 100 companies.
The cloud computing software is constantly evolving, adding new platform releases every six months (inry.com), which means companies are required to assess their own systems and patch areas that need tweaking to meet standards.
Our opinion: ServiceNow is not going anywhere anytime soon. Spending the time to learn the software is definitely worth the investment.
The Cost of Certification
69% of certified ServiceNow professionals agree that their certification made a positive difference in their careers. (ServiceNow.com)
There are many different options for certification, depending on your skillset and goals. “Time to complete this education training ranges from 16 hours to 8 months depending on the qualification, with a median time to complete of 30 hours. The cost to attend ServiceNow ranges from $125 to $2,500 depending on the qualification, with a median cost of $995.” (Indeed.com)
What is often overlooked when considering certification is that you should have experience before attempting certification. At Tech One IT, we have technology apprenticeships that provide the ability to work on ITSM software, setting you up with the necessary experience so that you can successfully complete the certification program, should you choose to do so.
ServiceNow has become a keyword amongst technology hiring managers. If you have experience with ServiceNow projects, you can expect that to help you move to the top of the pack when looking for a new job.
