ServiceNow has taken off from New York and landed in Orlando. While the New York release highlighted the Now Mobile application and features like the guided app creator and integration hub, ServiceNow Orlando release dives deeper into the world of AI and analytics.
The most exciting part of the New York release was the Natural Language Understanding (NLU) model builder, a major boost to machine learning. By feeding the system sample sentences and phrases specific to your organization and helping it understand word meanings and contexts, you can train the system to better recognize user statements in conversations. New York’s successor, ServiceNow Orlando, takes this a step further with features such as the ability to clone an NLU model and import common entities. And the best part is it requires no coding experience.
Armed with ServiceNow Orlando release features, enterprises can harness the power of AI to work smarter and make informed business decisions. From updates to predictive intelligence, mobile onboarding and HR service delivery, here are the top Orlando release highlights that are set to revamp your business.
