PLEASANTON, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 11/07/12 -- ServiceMax, the leading provider of the industry's only complete suite of cloud-based, mobile and social field service management applications, today announced a $27 million series D investment led by Crosslink Capital to fuel the company's rapid growth and geographic expansion. Also participating in the round were ServiceMax investors Emergence Capital Partners, Mayfield Fund, and Trinity Ventures. ServiceMax has raised $52 million to date.

In addition to success in the United States, ServiceMax has experienced substantial growth internationally and established a strong presence in Europe with a rapidly growing team. With the latest funding, ServiceMax will continue to invest aggressively in its European efforts and accelerate the company's successful international growth.
Joining the board is David Silverman, a partner at Crosslink Capital. Silverman brings 15 years of venture capital and investment banking experience to ServiceMax's board and has invested in numerous cloud companies with broad international success.
"The field service market is massive, nearly as large as salesforce automation, and ServiceMax has the right team and technology to take full advantage of this incredible opportunity," said Silverman. "Crosslink Capital invests in the most promising companies on the brink of exponential growth, and ServiceMax is primed to drive this market to new levels."
"Field service is the greatest use-case for cloud, mobile and social, and ServiceMax is built on a foundation of these technologies," said Jason Green, ServiceMax board member and partner at Emergence Capital. "The elite, proven team at ServiceMax combined with the huge market opportunity and their incredible pace of innovation, makes them the clear field service leader now and going forward."

DevOps is being widely accepted (if not fully adopted) as essential in enterprise IT. But as Enterprise DevOps gains maturity, expands scope, and increases velocity, the need for data-driven decisions across teams becomes more acute. DevOps teams in any modern business must wrangle the ‘digital exhaust’ from the delivery toolchain, "pervasive" and "cognitive" computing, APIs and services, mobile devices and applications, the Internet of Things, and now even blockchain.

Those statements were among the bottom-line takeaways delivered at Cloud Expo this week, a three day, bi-annual event focused on cloud technologies, adoption and associated challenges.
