Just Announced! Today’s Service Desk Deemed On-ramp to the Digital Workplace
Share our post
Yesterday EasyVista announced that the IT service desk has become the on-ramp for the evolving Digital Workplace. This is a clear trend evidenced by the surge of adoption among customers’ employees wanting consumer-like services from IT, as well as leading Gartner analysts, both indicating that the service desk is expanding its role from simply IT support to a key enabler of employee service. Over the last year, the ratio of EasyVista’s six million users shifted dramatically from 3% employee end users to 20% employee end users, demonstrating the increasing importance of mobility and usability to the employee service experience in the workplace. Additionally Gartner claims: “Digital workplace leaders should understand the needs of employees to help focus digital workplace priorities, include non-IT business units in digital workplace planning and execution, and make the service desk one of the focal points of the digital workplace,” wrote Gartner analysts Matt Cain, VP Distinguished Analyst, and Paul Miller, Managing VP, Gartner.*
