At Devhd, we believe that true success lies not only in business achievements but also in making a positive impact on the communities we are part of. Winter, a season close to our hearts, saw us directing our efforts toward three meaningful causes.

"Giving back to those in need is a lifelong value we learned as children. Today, part of our mission is to make a meaningful difference in the lives of others." - Adrian Herdan,  Founder and CEO at Devhd, Premier ServiceNow Partner.

Elderly Support

We continued our collaboration with the wonderful people at Fundația Regală Margareta a României for the "Fondul Varstnicului" initiative, teaming up in their incredible mission to support 120 elderly individuals, in Bucharest.

120 care packages & 44 volunteers - DevhdTogether, we provided care packages containing essential items such as food, personal hygiene products, and warm clothing for those in need. 4 members of our team, along with the other 40 volunteers, delivered the packages personally. Even though we understand that these small gestures don’t erase their challenges, we aimed to bring joy and ensure no one felt alone during the holiday season.

A big thank you to Bogdan, Mihai, Dragos, and Alexandru for volunteering their time and for their emotional investment in this initiative. Witnessing the smiles and appreciation from the elderly was truly heartwarming.

Caring for Animals

Devhd - Europe4strays animals

Expressing our love for animals, we collaborated with Europe4strays Animal Protection Association located in Bizighesti, Vrancea, providing essential items to ensure the well-being of stray animals. Mirela Mistodinis, the dedicated rescuer behind Europe4strays, is a beacon of hope for over 300 abandoned souls.

What makes Europe4strays truly special is that it operates entirely on the dedication of volunteers, led by  Mirela and supported by a network of activists both in Romania and abroad. Their work demonstrates the transformative impact of collective efforts and aim to provide a safe haven for these furry friends.

Supporting them means contributing to a movement that envisions a world where every animal is valued and loved. To learn more please visit their website www.europe4strays.wixsite.com/romania

Press article published in June 2023, now featured on our blog

Romanian company Devhd, specialized in providing consultancy and digital transformation services through the American platform ServiceNow, is counting on the unprecedented automation of operations in companies, in the middle of the growing adoption of artificial intelligence at the business level. 

Participating in the annual ServiceNow conference – “Knowledge23” which recently took place in Las Vegas, in the United States, Devhd proudly salutes the groundbreaking partnership between ServiceNow and NVIDIA. This partnership aims to develop powerful generative AI capabilities for enterprises, with the goal of transforming business processes with faster, more intelligent workflow automation. Using NVIDIA software, services, and accelerated infrastructure, ServiceNow is developing custom large language models trained on data specifically for its ServiceNow Platform, the intelligent platform for end-to-end digital transformation.  

This will expand ServiceNow’s already extensive AI functionality with new uses for generative AI across the enterprise — including for IT departments, customer service teams, employees, and developers — to strengthen workflow automation and rapidly increase productivity.  

“Partnering with NVIDIA represents a tremendous opportunity for the IT industry. The integration of Generative AI into the ServiceNow platform has the potential to revolutionize the operations of large and very large companies and open new horizons for improving productivity and efficiency. We are proud to be part of this innovative alliance, as a Premier ServiceNow Partner and to offer cutting-edge solutions for our customers on the ServiceNow platform,” says Adrian Herdan, Devhd CEO. 

How will generative AI impact the life of a company?  

Reshaping digital businesses 

The alliance is exploring a number of generative AI use cases to simplify and improve productivity across the enterprise by providing high accuracy and higher value in IT.  

This includes developing intelligent virtual assistants and agents to help quickly resolve a broad range of user questions and support requests with purpose-built AI chatbots that use large language models and focus on defined IT tasks.  

To simplify the user experience, enterprises can customize chatbots with proprietary data to create a central generative AI resource that stays on topic while resolving many different requests. 

These generative AI use cases are also applicable to customer service agents, allowing for case prioritization with greater accuracy, saving time and improving outcomes. Customer service teams can use generative AI for automatic issue resolution, knowledge-base article generation based on customer case summaries, and chat summarization for faster hand-off, resolution, and wrap-up. 

Employees can learn faster and easier  

In addition, generative AI can improve the employee experience by helping to identify growth opportunities. For example, delivering customized learning and development recommendations, like courses and mentors, based on natural language queries and information from an employee’s profile.  

More customers, lower costs 

According to a study by the Harvard Business Review, companies that incorporate artificial intelligence into sales and marketing processes have seen a 50% increase in the number of leads generated through campaigns, while simultaneously reducing the time spent on calls with customers by 60%-70% and reduced overhead costs associated with these activities by 40-60%. 

The success of AI is evident in companies around the world, but a number of challenges should not be neglected: 

  • AI implementation needs more specialists. 59% of companies believe that there is a severe deficit in this area, according to a study. 
  • A massive professional retraining process (re-skilling/up-skilling) will be necessary. According to the World Economic Forum, the impact of AI in the coming years will be significant: 85 million jobs will be replaced, but another 97 million jobs will emerge as a result of AI’s influence. 

Following the phenomenon known as the Great Resignation, the Great Re-skill/Up-Skill will follow. This boom in the use of AI, particularly within the IT industry, will generate numerous jobs that can be categorized as “new software for a new age”, almost similar to the birth of mobile telephony or cloud computing. We should be prepared for this phenomenon”, explains Adrian Herdan.

True success lies not only in business achievements but also in making a positive impact on the communities we are part of. At Devhd, we are passionate about giving back and extending a helping hand to those in need, particularly focusing on children and the elderly.

"Giving back to those in need is a lifelong value we learned as children. Today, part of our mission is to make a meaningful difference in the lives of others." - Adrian Herdan,  Founder and CEO at Devhd | Premier ServiceNow Partners.

Mia's Children: A Home with Hope

In our ongoing journey of corporate social responsibility (CSR), partnering with Mia's Children, an extraordinary association in Romania was a privilege. Their mission is to rescue children and young people in need, providing them with a loving and nurturing home and environment. Their vision goes beyond mere shelter, aiming to educate and empower generations to become happy, healthy contributors to society—both physically and emotionally.  Their dedication is truly commendable.

It was an indescribable experience to have the opportunity to connect with the incredible children there. Witnessing their united big family of over 40 individuals was heart melting. These children, with their immense talent, gifts, and education, radiate a light that is simply captivating.

Recognizing the ongoing needs within this organization, Devhd joined forces to support their cause, even in a small way. We ensured that all children have access to safe drinking water by donating a filtered water dispenser. This simple contribution will improve their overall health and well-being. Additionally, the children received summer sports equipment for their physical activity, and joy. 

"I strongly believe that every child carries in his being a treasure. It is our duty to discover it, and through the force of love and the skill of the grinder to make it vibrate by stretching its wings in front of humanity. Every child raised by us is a living proof of the treasures found and harassed, given to society." says Mia Scarlat, the founder of Mia's Children, with an enourmous heart & ambition.

You are more than welcome to join this alliance of change. To learn more about Mia's Children and their inspiring work, please visit their website at www.mias-children.ro. Together, we can create a brighter future for these children.

Caring for Children and the Elderly

Significant changes in our society require a joint effort from businesses and the NGO sector. When we come together, combining our brainpower, heart, effort, and resources, the circle of good becomes even larger. At Devhd, we hold a deep sense of responsibility towards both children and the elderly, acknowledging their vulnerability and the importance of their well-being. We believe that every person, regardless of age, deserves access to basic necessities and the opportunity to feel loved and supported.

In the past year, we had the privilege of participating in other two community initiatives: "Incalta un Inger" and "Fondul Varstnicului." Through our partnership with Asociatia Dragoste Desculta, we contributed to the "Incalta un Inger" project. Witnessing the joy and gratitude on the faces of these children reminded us of the power of a simple act of kindness.

We also collaborated with Fundația Regală Margareta a României for the "Fondul Varstnicului" initiative, which focuses on supporting the elderly. Together, we provided care packages containing essential items such as food, personal hygiene products, and warm clothing for those in need. Witnessing the smiles and appreciation from the elderly was truly heartwarming.

2022 has been a memorable year for Devhd as we achieved significant milestones and accomplishments. We are a proud ServiceNow Technology, Services, and Sales Premier Partner, we expanded our footprint by opening a new office in Germany allowing us to better serve our clients and tap into new markets and our commitment to providing the highest quality service is reflected in our impressive customer satisfaction score of 4.95 out of 5.

Here’s to an even more successful 2023!

 

Devhd is proud to announce that it has been certified as a "Great Place to Work" by the Great Place to Work Institute, which is a reflection of our dedication to creating a work environment that prioritises positivity, inclusivity, and employee satisfaction. With an impressive score of 100% in areas such as equal opportunities and inclusion, employee recognition, supportive culture, and interesting and innovative projects, we are honoured to be acknowledged for our dedication to our team.

 

At Devhd, we understand that the key to our success as a company lies in the satisfaction and happiness of our employees. That's why we place a strong emphasis on fostering a positive and supportive work environment. From offering competitive compensation and benefits, to providing opportunities for professional development, we are dedicated to ensuring that our team members can thrive.

 

Obtaining the Great Place to Work® certification is a rigorous process that involves an in-depth evaluation of the company culture. Results are determined by the real-time reports of the employees, who are surveyed on various aspects of the work environment, including trust in leadership, fairness, camaraderie, and more. The survey results are then compared to those of other companies in the same industry. Only companies that meet the high standards set by the Great Place to Work Institute are awarded this certification. The survey respondents indicated that Devhd excels in areas such as equal opportunities and inclusion (100%), management genuinely seeks and responds to suggestions and ideas (100%), and people are encouraged to balance their work and personal life (93%). Our dedication to these core values is what sets us apart.

As a certified Great Place to Work®, we are able to attract and retain top talent, which in turn provides clients with the highest level of service and expertise. Our commitment to creating a positive and supportive work environment means that our employees are engaged, motivated, and invested in the success of our clients. Additionally, a focus on equal opportunities and inclusion, employee recognition, and a supportive culture builds a diverse and innovative team, that brings fresh perspectives and ideas to the table. Choosing Devhd as a partner means that clients can trust they are working with a team that is dedicated to their success and is committed to delivering the best possible results.

 

It's an honour to have received this certification and we will continue to strive to make Devhd an even better place to work. Our team members are the driving force behind our success, and we are grateful for their contributions. We look forward to continuing to grow together as a team, and to providing our clients with the highest level of service and expertise.

 

Great Place to Work® is an international research and consulting institute that supports companies in around 60 countries in developing their corporate and workplace culture. A culture focussed on trust and performance not only ensures motivation and loyalty from employees, it also strengthens the economic performance of a company. It makes a significant contribution to successfully managing change processes such as digital transformation or demographic change. Each year, Great Place to Work® grants certification to very good international, national, regional and sector-specific employers in recognition of their performance on the basis of anonymous employee surveys and the corporate culture analysis.

 

Building strong teams for better outcomes.

There are many creative ways to build team spirit and morale in the workplace and the most impactful one is organizing team building activities. They can help foster teamwork and improve communication and collaboration within a team.

A shared understanding is essential for effective collaboration; it provides a common foundation for the group to reference, enables accurate interpretation of situations and choices, helps people understand one another better, and greatly increases efficiency.

What are the key elements of a successful team building? 

As the saying goes, a change of scenery can do wonders for the mind and body. That is why Devhd team decided to take our team building to new heights - literally - by heading to the mountains for a unique and engaging experience. 

As the winter team building kicked off, we gathered to review the achievements and lessons learned from the past year. It was a valuable opportunity to reflect on the progress made in 2022 and to identify areas for improvement in the coming year. We were excited to share our accomplishments with each other and to learn from each other's experiences. It was the perfect time to set goals for the future and to discuss our strategies for achieving them.

At Devhd, we place a strong emphasis on both professional and personal growth. In this team-building exercise, we had the opportunity to learn from our friend Alex Aninosanu from Think Backwards through a live training session. We got to know each other better and learn how to work together more creatively and effectively. This day was a productive and inspiring start to our team building.  

"Devhd is one of my favorite clients! I feel so proud when I see a local entrepreneurial company that invests so much in the development of its team. Keep rocking and being awesome guys! This is one of the main reasons why you attract the best talent and bring so much value to your customers." Alex Aninosanu, trainer at Think Backwards.

It is important to find a balance between having a clear purpose and enjoying the experience. Therefore, we continued with a traditional dinner in the beautiful city of Brasov, Transylvania. This was designed to break the ice, come together as a team, and welcome our partners who joined the team building.  

The fun did not stop there. The next day, our team gathered for what they thought would be a typical Developer Showcase. Little did they know, we had a special surprise in store for them – the very first ServiceNow Hackathon in Romania! 

What is a hackathon you may wonder? A hackathon is an event in which teams come together to collaborate on and develop innovative ideas, often using a specific platform or technology. These events are a fantastic way to bring people together, encourage creativity, and provide team members with an opportunity to learn from each other and build new skills.  

First ServiceNow Hackathon in the World

A little bit of history: at Knowledge15, the ServiceNow annual conference, held in Las Vegas, in 2015, they launched the first edition of the CreatorCon Hackathon, an add-on event specifically designed for ServiceNow developers. About 1,250 of them dedicated 2 days to (learning about) creating applications on the ServiceNow platform. It was easy, it was fun and it was central to the founder’s vision.  

Fred Luddy founded ServiceNow in 2004 and this is what he had in mind about the Creators: “When I started ServiceNow,” he said, “my vision was to build a cloud-based platform that would enable regular people to create meaningful applications to route work through an enterprise.”  

So, I asked Adrian Herdan, Devhd founder: What inspired you to organize the first Hackathon in Romania? 

“Together with Florin Danis, my partner, we had a dream to build a ServiceNow community in Romania, as there was none when we first started to work on the Now Platform. We wanted to put Romania on the map through our dedication and hard work in this field. The first hackathon, the formation & the continuously growing Devhd team are key milestones in achieving this dream.” 

First ServiceNow Hackathon in Romania 

The team was prepared to present & demo new ServiceNow capabilities in a typical Developer Showcase. However, during a brainstorming session, our colleague Bogdan Ionescu challenged us with the idea of organizing a surprise Hackathon. The proposal sparked excitement and enthusiasm within the team, so we quickly rallied around the new plan. 

Getting back to our special day, instead of the Showcase, imagine waking up to the following plot twist: 

“100 years in the future, humanity will be able to explore other solar systems across the galaxy thanks to advanced technology. The World Space Center (WSC) is close to completing the first-generation ship for interstellar travel. To efficiently manage the operation of space travel, WSC has invited companies to pitch and demo ideas to solve operational problems. The winning company will receive the contract and be a part of the journey. Your start-up, which builds and implements digital workflows for enterprises, plans to take on this challenge and believes Service Management principles can be applied to create applications for managing space exploration operations in ServiceNow. As part one of the 4 teams tasked with ideating, building, and pitching a prototype app, you will work on a topic that will be part of the Space Service Management Application Suite (SSM).”   

Four teams were formed, each chose a name and challenge, and they built an app in ServiceNow:  

  • Space Cheese – supply chain management  
  • Space Rangers – training and certifications  
  • Sirius Explorers - star navigation  
  • Now Mercenaries - weapons and ammunition  

The Hackathon was a true exercise in teamwork and dedication. Everyone brought their A-game, brainstormed and coordinated to develop some fantastic projects that centered on space travel and resource management. Thoroughly watched and guided by Adrian Herdan, Alex Aninosanu and Titus Schoebel, our three judges, this activity created surprising learning opportunities and increased trust in our own judgment. We were able to leverage the powerful resources of the ServiceNow platform to bring our prototypes to life, and the results were nothing short of amazing.  

Throughout the day, we were constantly reminded of the value of togetherness and trust in the workplace. It was an intense day where we needed all the technical expertise, critical thinking and business knowledge we had. This was a reminder that when we all work together towards a common goal, success is sure to follow. 

What were the most innovative apps?  

The winners of the Hackathon - Space Rangers, created an automated training & certification program in the Now Platform. Utilizing the SkillFit wearable device, the system evaluated each crew member's skills and assigned custom training tailored to their abilities. The data was centralized for efficient knowledge transfer and analyzed through a predictive intelligence clustering tool to identify top skills for everyone. The system also featured an Idea Portal for feedback, a custom dashboard and pie chart for crew analysis, and a training application called Space Training. This was built with App Engine Studio and included data models, user interfaces, automated workflows & user role management for enhanced productivity, security, and access delegation. 

Coming up next, the Sirius Explorers team presented an innovative Space Event Management system which was sending a probe years ahead of light and analyzing the data received. Additionally, in case of a dangerous space event, all ships on that route were notified. This app stood out by integrating with the other apps built during the hackathon, offering location services for weaponry, training, and logistics. 

The star of their project was the successful implementation of the virtual agent chat bot using a Natural Language Understanding NLU Model, which enabled the bot to understand, process, and respond accordingly to the queries and requests of the user. The team made a live demo of the chatbot, where members of the audience could engage with the bot by asking questions and interacting with it. 

Other ServiceNow capabilities tackled by the teams when building their prototype apps were Hardware Asset Management, Service Catalog, Risk Assessment, Change Management, Event Management, Purchase Orders, Employee Center (custom widgets), Asset Management, Request Management - Order Guides, Custom Service Portal Widget, Knowledge Management and more. 

“If we ever actually have to build a Space Service Management module, Devhd | Premier ServiceNow Partner is now prepared,” said Adrian Herdan, our founder. 

We left the Hackathon feeling inspired and motivated, knowing that the ServiceNow platform will always be a playground for innovative and creative work. We are already looking forward to the next edition, knowing that with the right team and focus, the sky is the limit.  

The importance of working towards a common goal

The following day, we relaxed and went on a hike, putting our teamwork and problem-solving abilities to the test by escaping from four escape rooms. Later, we came together around a campfire, watching the world cup semi-final, singing and dancing, and creating cherished memories with our team. 

Our co-founder, Florin Danis, used an analogy, saying "if Devhd | Premier ServiceNow Partner - were a footbal team, we would compete in the major league" following the semi-finals.  

Overall, it was a truly special and engaging team building that brought the team closer together and reminded us of the importance of working towards a common goal. Together, we can achieve more than we could individually. And with the right tools and resources, our team will continue to make progress and improve performance.  

The beautiful surroundings, combined with the excitement of the first ServiceNow Hackathon in Romania and other team building activities, made for an unforgettable experience. We, as a team, are grateful for the chance to come together once more and we are looking ahead to a bright future. Who knows what fresh ideas we will come up with next time? One thing is certain: the future looks bright when you aim for the stars.
