I love Vegas: the neon, the tables, and the ServiceNow Knowledge conference! Whether this was your first Knowledge or you’ve been gaining knowledge since the early days back in New Orleans, the week never disappoints. K24 was a pivotal conference for RapDev this year, bringing a quarter of the company, running 2 expo floor booths, and hosting 3 packed rooms of insightful speaking sessions throughout the week. And, of course, we can’t forget our kickass happy hour at Sugarcane.


Knowledge for RapDev is all about three things:

  1. Staying Ahead of the Curve: We devour every detail about new ServiceNow releases to ensure we're delivering the best possible solutions to our clients.

  3. Solving Your Problems: We love hearing about the challenges you face and showcasing how RapDev's automation, ChatOps, and GenAI expertise can transform your ServiceNow experience.

We see customers using the platform in innovative ways across industries. Our goal is to tailor RapDev solutions to perfectly fit your needs, no matter your vertical.

Beers with Engineers: Code, Conversation, and CSDM as Code

Beers with Engineers is a monthly virtual happy hour hosted by Will Hallam and Mike Gallagher, where ServiceNow engineers from customers and partners gather to discuss the latest ServiceNow tech. At Knowledge 2024, we co-hosted this popular event and led a hands-on CSDM as Code lab.

What is CSDM as Code?

It allows application teams to dynamically register microservices and application services in the CMDB using YAML files stored within their source code repositories. Simply populate a YAML file, and the relevant entities and relationships are automatically maintained according to CSDM 4.0 standards. This eliminates the need for application teams to become ServiceNow experts and frees them from the burden of complex CSDM terminology. Operations teams gain improved visibility into application architectures and benefit from automatically generated Tag-Based Service Maps.
