ServiceNow’s David Wright Announced as Keynote at Zenoss Upcoming User Conference

GalaxZ Brings Together Innovative Organizations to Drive the Next Phase of IT Infrastructure Monitoring

AUSTIN, TX – April 5, 2016 – Zenoss Inc., the leader in unified IT monitoring and analytics software, today announced David Wright, Chief Strategy Officer for ServiceNow (NYSE: NOW), the enterprise IT cloud company, as the keynote for GalaxZ 16, the global user conference, to be held May 10-12, 2016, at the JW Marriott in Austin, Texas.

"Many of the world’s most technologically advanced organizations are delivering IT innovation by integrating Zenoss’ unified monitoring platform with ServiceNow’s ticketing and CMDB capabilities," said Greg Stock, Chairman and CEO of Zenoss. "The ServiceNow growth story is amazing, and David’s view of the IT landscape as well as his expectations for the future will be highly insightful."

Wright presents Tuesday, May 10, from 9:30 to 10:30 a.m. Central. Nothing gives companies the extensibility, scalability, return on investment and time to value that cloud technology provides. This is the next phase of the service revolution, and there are very few organizations that don’t have some sort of cloud application in place. Wright will show how IT can use its successful roots to drive service transformation throughout the enterprise and deliver more value than ever seen before. The audience will hear how to automate the most mundane, tactical activities and enable IT to become heroes of innovation and drivers of the service-oriented enterprise.

Prior to joining ServiceNow, Wright spent over six years with VMware Inc. as Vice President of Technical Services for EMEA. From 2003 to 2005, Wright headed up the technical division for northern and southern Europe at Mercury Interactive. Prior to that, he spent six years at Peregrine Systems Inc., where he held a variety of senior technical and marketing positions. Wright has also worked for Boole & Babbage Inc. and Candle Services (later acquired by IBM).
