Companies invest a lot of money in technology and equipment to organize their processes and to improve performance. The point is that data networks are increasing their extension, which makes it difficult to properly manage the system and its processes. Assuming a role of control over these technologies is the first step to detect of problems in advance and in a more proactive way by monitoring of environments.
The development of information and communications technologies has meant a revolution in IT companies, as the employees acquire new roles. It goes from being a mere spectator of content to becoming the generator of it. For this reason, it is important to have innovative tools at their service so they can interact with the all IT environment in a safe and pleasant way.
Even though it’s early, my discussions these first few months of the year tell me that “employee experience” is becoming one of the buzzwords of 2019. The CEOs and CTOs I’ve spoken with at companies of all types and sizes are talking about the need to provide a world-class workplace experience for their employees (and what that actually means).
In the digital era, professions related to engineering, telecommunications and Information Technology (IT) are essential to help companies solve the problems that arise in their day-to-day lives and, above all, to keep updated to make the most of the platforms they implement. IT department must be the backbone of the companies, it is the vital basis that supports and directs disruptive technologies in a connected society, which will continue to grow exponentially in the coming years.
Many companies have been at the forefront of technology by providing their employees with solutions that simplify and automate tasks to reduce time and cost. However, they have not stopped to think that they can still further reduce their issues. And is that each worker continues to lose 22 minutes a day due to IT problems. The reason: employees choose silence.
The release of Nexthink’s Digital Experience Score earlier this year was an important milestone for the company and was the outcome of many conversations we had with our customers over the last few years. It has probably been five years since I first heard a customer talking about the need for metrics to address the challenges they were having in taking a more employee-centric approach to their business.
Even though it’s early, my discussions these first few months of the year tell me that “employee experience” is becoming one of the buzzwords of 2019. The CEOs and CTOs I’ve spoken with at companies of all types and sizes are talking about the need to provide a world-class workplace experience for their employees (and what that actually means). But why should executives focus on providing a strong employee experience? Why should you use precious time and resources on improving how your employees work each day?
Better employee experience drives better business outcomes1. The result? Technology is no longer the driving force of IT — instead, the end-users’ digital experience is the key to unlocking business value and driving ROI.
Although technology continues to evolve, the processes that support Information Technology Service Management (ITSM) have remained relatively unchanged for several decades. One of the main challenges to delivering high-quality IT services in this long-established approach is reactivity – that is, focusing on incident management as a means to resolve something that should never have happened in the first place.
