Q1:  Hi Priya, thanks for allowing us to profile you in our monthly broadcast.  Can you give us a brief overview of your skillset around ServiceNow - Development, Architecture and Design?
A:  My name is Priya and I am currently working as Senior ServiceNow Developer at a major bank here in Toronto. My journey with ServiceNow started 5 years ago as I come from a programming background, I instantly felt comfortable with the tool.

Q2:  What is your day to day involvement in terms of projects and what is your role?
A:  As I am the Senior Lead Developer for the Portal Team, we are replacing the old CMS portal with a new advanced self-service portal that is more user friendly and compatible with mobile applications. This portal will offer users to request goods and services, offered by the company, in a more organized way. Users will be able to raise tickets; monitor the lifecycle of their tickets; interact with live agents; and search knowledge articles. We are also implementing a process to post announcements on the portal that would keep end users more informed of whatever new is happening in the company or if there is a service outage. 
Q3:  What do you love about your job/role?

A:  There are 2 main reasons as to why I enjoy my job:

  1. Interact with people: People who know me, would know that I love talking. One of the best part of my job is that I get to meet different clients, understand their requirements and develop something that would help them. 
  2. Learning: Another reason that I love what I do, is that I learn something new everyday. Whether it happens while debugging an issue, or for preparing for new project or while working with my other teammates.
