Wellcome Trust IT organisation saves more than £600,000 through ServiceNow cloud services and IT process improvement
SAN DIEGO – July 5, 2011 - ServiceNow, the creator of cloud services for enterprise IT management, today announced it has named Mark Bramwell, Wellcome Trust head of IT, as the ServiceNow IT Hero of the Month. The ServiceNow IT Hero of the Month program recognises the outstanding achievements of the people who transform IT.
Mark heads a forward-thinking IT organization using ServiceNow cloud services for IT service management to improve customer service, to enhance service delivery and to ultimately save £600,000 that can be reinvested into the Trust’s life-saving medical research programs.
Wellcome Trust is a global charitable foundation dedicated to achieving extraordinary improvements in health by supporting the brightest minds.
Wellcome Trust’s IT team carried out an organisational review and service improvement effort using ITIL v3 processes as a guide. ServiceNow SaaS for IT was central to this program. The primary goal was to improve customer service, enhance service delivery and lower costs so more funds could be invested in the Trust’s primary medical research activities.
“Our work has already delivered measurable cost-savings in excess of £600,000,” said Mark. “We have designed better processes based on ITIL v3, then automated these using cloud services from ServiceNow. As we run IT operations more efficiently, these savings allow our organisation to dedicate more funds towards its research programs in helping to progress advancements and tangible improvements in health.”
Mark and the Wellcome Trust were recently recognised as a Computerworld 2011 Honors Laureate for their exceptional use of technology in the advancement of global health issues.
