A Day Of Reckoning Is Near 

ServiceNow Chief Innovation Officer Dave Wright has spent 25 years in technology helping businesses find ways to run more efficiently. He said automation is the next step in that journey.

Where it’s just going to be too much data for people to handle.”

For the past eight years, Wright has climbed the ranks inside ServiceNow from global solutions consultant to the strategy office, where he was responsible for establishing the direction of the company, including high‑level investment areas in product development through to pricing.
