Customers have caught on that support interactions are getting better. When they reach out, they’ve come to expect an instant response that says “we’re here for you”. When they want information, it’s expected to be accurate, up-to-date, and easily accessible. Essentially, they come to expect efficiency during support interactions.
As a result, businesses are becoming more cognizant of their self- service offerings. Customers want to be left feeling empowered; it’s even better when they can do so on their own. Self-service saves time for agents, cuts down on organizational costs, and leaves the customer with a positive outlook of a brand.
This eBook delves into how AI can enhance your customer self-service offerings with automatically-generated knowledge bases, content cues for your service agents, and chatbots.
Even if companies understand that an omnichannel approach performs better in terms of operational metrics and meeting customer expectations, there’s still the question of how to do it.
How should companies go about adopting an omnichannel support solution?
As companies increasingly look to provide a better experience for customers, offering support across multiple channels is becoming more popular than ever. According to the Aberdeen Group, companies doubled the number of channels they use to interact with customers between 2012 and 2017.
But there’s a difference between providing support on a few channels and delivering a truly integrated omnichannel solution. Using the Zendesk Benchmark, our crowd-sourced index of customer service interactions from 45,000 participating organizations across 140 countries, we examined why companies are going omnichannel and what sets the companies using Zendesk for omnichannel support apart from everyone else.
Today’s digital businesses are managed using critical business analyses that provide far greater insight into the business and how to maximize results. However, these high-value applications that use the latest software tools demand far more from IT infrastructure, as they utilize an order of magnitude more data and demand more compute resources than legacy applications. Legacy systems are no longer capable of meeting the present and future needs of the organization.
Forward-thinking IT organizations are developing new infrastructure strategies to better support high-value analytics workloads with Dell EMC PowerEdge Servers powered by Intel® Xeon® Platinum processor.
Transforming IT to meet the emerging requirements of a rapidly advancing digital economy is a priority for most companies today. Market economies and quickly evolving digital interactions are driving new and increasing demands on IT infrastructure for organizations of all kinds – from small businesses to enterprises to public institutions. IT requirements to support a variety of digital use paradigms (personal devices, IoT, VMs, VDI) are changing quickly, and organizations need to respond in order to be competitive in this evolving digital world.
The latest generation of PowerEdge servers powered by Intel® Xeon® Platinum processors can deliver differentiated business agility over older-generation infrastructure. IDC asserted that updating servers can help businesses deploy applications up to 22 percent faster and improve application performance up to 29 percent over outdated infrastructure.
Intel Inside®. New Possibilities Outside.
This paper provides an overview of the changing dynamics in the business world that demand a new approach to IT infrastructure. It provides a perspective for business managers and executives who are looking for a way to align business and IT by facing the challenges of disruption for better business outcomes.
We will discuss the Kinetic Infrastructure from Dell EMC powered by Intel® Xeon® Platinum processor, which is designed to support IT flexibility and business agility. In addition, we will describe the first implementation of kinetic infrastructure on the Dell EMC PowerEdge MX system. The paper will explain how Dell EMC is helping businesses to rethink their data center architecture and accelerate their path towards more agility.
Digital technology is so intrinsic to our personal lives that we barely think
about the fitness trackers and smartphones that are as much a part of
us as the clothing we wear. For organizations, the shift to digital is more
disruptive and the stakes far higher. Digital transformation has been high
on the executive agenda for a few years and, for many, harnessing data
has become a significant force for value and revenue creation.
Agility has emerged as an organizational superpower as businesses
grapple with change and uncertainty in their own customer bases and in
the global political and economic landscape. IT has been thrust into the
spotlight as the unwitting hero of the story – tasked with delivering on
the digital vision, implementing all manner of applications and building
firm infrastructure foundations to support the latest digital initiatives.
In an increasingly on-demand world, it is this final point that often gets
overlooked in the rush for the next shiny new technologies. E
VMware surveyed approximately 200 senior IT leaders at enterprise, commercial, and SMB organizations worldwide to shed light on the evolving role of IT. In the face of increased pressures, IT oganizations are needing to accelerate development and delivery of applications that power faster time-to-market for the business.
In this paper, we chart the progress of CIOs, CTOs and other IT leaders and discuss the top challenges they face in building more nimble, responsive organizations to support their business objectives. We also show how data centre modernization can help organizations deliver the agility required to meet ever-increasing demands for faster innovation through a flexible, service-oriented IT model that employs both private and public clouds.

For a backup solution to be considered flexible, it needs to satisfy
several key business requirements. It should integrate seamlessly
with any servers you’re running and provide full support for
all the applications your business uses. It should enable you to
protect assets in different parts of the country or overseas. And
it should let you manage and monitor backups from anywhere.
A flexible backup solution gives you everything you need to
protect the technology investments you make now and in the
future. So instead of having to buy multiple solutions to support
your changing needs, you can have a single solution that adapts
to fit your environment. We call that flexible deployment.
