Are Your Employees' Tickets Resolved or Are They on Vacation?

Every year during the holidays, our customer, a multinational professional services organization, has thousands of IT tickets built up due to employees on vacation. As the IT teams reached out and didn’t receive a response, their performance metrics ticked up, impacting their quarterly goals and customer satisfaction. In defense of these employees, we all know what it is like to come back to an overflowing inbox.

UX Research: The Power of Customer Feedback

Gathering data doesn’t just help a business understand what’s working and not working. It also shows the way forward, enabling teams to make the right improvements to benefit both the business and the people they serve. And in many cases, the most powerful data a business can collect comes directly from its customers. Here at Nexthink, the UX Research team talks to customers and partners to learn about their goals and challenges.

Comparing gRPC performance across different technologies

gRPC is an open-source Remote Procedure Call system focusing on high performance. There exist several gRPC benchmarks including an official one, yet we still wanted to create our own. Why would we torture ourselves doing such a thing? So with those points in mind, we created a completely open-source benchmark where everyone is welcome to contribute and which could be run with a single command, having only Docker as a prerequisite.

By 2030, e-Waste Will Reach 2.5 Million Metric Tons Unless We 'Sober Up'

Let’s admit something without shame: we love to use new technology. Maybe the latest smart phone, or a new lightweight laptop or tablet that makes it easier to work from anywhere, it’s all fair game. And when we are at our desk, we enjoy creating expansive workspaces with multiple monitors, a full-size keyboard, and other extras. When we look across our household, we might have duplicate, perhaps triplicate resources growing our technology real estate exponentially.

Greater Expectations: How the Smartphone Put Employees in Charge

The first time I was introduced to a real, proper PC was in the early 90’s: my uncle’s work PC, which I used instead to play games. In fact, my first experience with any kind of tech support service was when I phoned the Codemasters help line after getting stuck on a particularly knotty puzzle in the game ‘Dizzy’. No matter how loudly I shouted into the phone, the machine continued to route me back to the beginning of its automated script.

Mean Time to Innocence: Avoiding the Blame Game with Desktop Virtualization

Mean time to innocence (MTTI) is a term used by IT teams to prove that their respective domain is not the source of a particular issue. In other words, it’s a fancy term to avoid blame when something goes wrong. Each team has its own domain-specific tools to prove the issue is not their fault. With respect to desktop virtualization, here are just some of the domains that are relevant when diagnosing issues.

Green IT and DEX: Impactful Change Through Employee Experience.

The fast-paced adoption of digital workplace technologies provides fantastic opportunities to improve digital employee experience (DEX). But it comes at a cost. Digital technology has a serious—and increasing—impact on our environment, with a carbon footprint of about 4% of global carbon emission (that’s more than the aviation industry’s 2.5% contribution).

5 Best IT Experience Practices Your Team Can Make Today

If you were to put 100 enterprise tech leaders in a room together and ask them if they think their company’s employee experience is dependent upon IT, I’m certain all would agree it is. But I’m also certain those 100 wouldn’t know: For IT decision-makers, the devil is in the details. Many are judged by uncompromising Service Level Agreements (SLAs) and shoddy survey data, not comprehensive digital experience trends and indexes.
