Digital transformation encompasses both technological and human components. While many initiatives focus on ensuring that a company’s multi-cloud infrastructure is agile enough to meet changing demands around cloud mobile, Internet of Things (IoT), and big data, it’s equally important to empower business workers with the modern digital tools they need to be successful today. Artificial intelligence and machine learning can play a vital role on both of these fronts. In fact, 78 percent of CIOs and senior IT leaders are already looking to AI to address complexity,1 and by 2019, 30 percent of IT service desks will utilize machine learning to free up support capacity.2
The magnitude of change has forced companies to take stock of the experience they offer employees. As digital natives3 enter and advance in the workforce, talent retention is now a top priority.

• The ability to integrate cloud and on-premise solutions to leverage existing systems while leveraging new innovations via the cloud.
• The advantages of cloud-base
Every day, technology plays a bigger and bigger role throughout corporate America, corporate success becomes increasingly dependent on productive use of information technology – and IT support grows more critical. But while excellent IT support rapidly returns users to productive work, the information necessary to that excellence is often fragmented in different parts of the IT organization. Effective knowledge management empowers service desks – and even users themselves – by enabling quick, accurate and consistent user solutions. That leads to measureable benefits for your business. This brief explores 20 metrics that measure those benefits – in other words, your “return on knowledge.”
For companies that sell products or services that require technical support, the support customers receive might be the only personal experience they can use to gauge their satisfaction with an organization. Since, for many of these organizations, customer satisfaction directly affects revenue, measuring customers’ satisfaction with the service experience and the services provided is extremely important as it enables these organizations to manage and improve the customer experience. This HDI Research Corner report reveals the findings from 264 support organizations that provide technical support for the services or products used by customers.
Customer service has evolved from a reactive activity viewed largely as a cost center-based tactical necessity, to a proactive management task that can in many ways set a company apart from the competition. At the same time, the channels by which customers receive support are growing and fragmenting very rapidly. The telephone is still the primary mode of support, but is steadily declining as text, social media, chat, knowledge bases, email and online communities provide new avenues for customers to get the help they need. Some organizations are embracing this evolution by implementing technologies that enable them to interact with customers regardless of the channel or the device they’re using. This approach not only improves customer service, but also boosts the brand image and helps companies achieve broader business goals.

In 2017, Arriva’s UK operations underwent a major IT transformation project to centralize its IT department and 13-strong service desk team.
