As IT Leaders Brace for More Uncertainty, the Focus Is on Increasing Bandwidth and Coordinated Efforts
COLUMBUS, Ohio--(BUSINESS WIRE)--#distantlearning--In a recent TeamDynamix market study: “ITSM in the New Normal,” 55% of the participants state that they were not prepared to support a remote workplace or remote learning environment. Key areas in need of improved technology include better end-user portals for managing inquiries, improved tools for managing remote teams, and increased insight to manage work and resource allocations.
5 Quick Wins for IT Support Teams to Improve Bandwidth & Collaboration:
A fully functional online portal for end-users can reduce call volume by 20-50%; this includes an online knowledge base, service catalog and automated workflow for technicians.
68% of the study participants could not engage in resource capacity planning; when IT teams are stretched thin, it is important to have one place for incidents, problems, change requests and project work.
Crowdsource content from end-users; as users discover how to do something, they can create an article that goes into a queue for review & posting.
As maturity increases, use change management and asset management to reduce the time that IT spends gathering information or planning for new releases or patches.
- Leverage a project platform to manage remote teamwork – when IT resources are stretched thin, managing projects, upgrades, releases, and change can be daunting – a combined ITSM & Project platform helps.
