IT and technical support would love for end users and customers to take advantage of self-service resources. End users and customers would love for self-service to be easier.

Analysts can benefit as well, having powerful assistance at their command to find knowledge and implement solutions without making users and customer wait.
What You Will Learn:
- What “assisted self-service” means
- Why self-service adoption can be a struggle
- How next-generation tools can help both end users and support analysts
Who Should Attend:
- Knowledge Management professionals seeking ways to improve
- ITSM professionals tasked with building self-service portals
- Support organization leaders who wish free analysts up from repetitive tasks

Service desks are closer to the customers than we can ever imagine. With self-service adoption on the rise and Service desks making it easy for their users to reach them, why do we still hear IT agents complaining users don’t raise tickets? Can we get the Service desk closer to the customers? What if the Service desk lives where the customers are already there?
This talk explores the possibility of approaching Service management with a selfless mindset focusing primarily on self-service and customers logging tickets with the service desk. A selfless approach takes a lot of effort but not without its benefits.

Firms are under growing pressure to transform into digital enterprises. Just consider that nearly 10% of U.S. firms expect to have an application provisioned in one day or less using cloud services. Or that enterprises need to respond to more event-driven situations, such as real-time price competition, product recalls, and cyberattacks. In addition to forcing enterprises to reevaluate the types of outsourced and managed services they consume, these types of market pressures are forcing service providers and outsourcers to make fundamental changes in their capabilities and offerings.
This Web conference will use the IDC MaturityScape framework to evaluate the buyer evolution in utilizing managed digital services (including cloud, mobile, social, analytics, IoT, and cognitive) as well as the expectations that buyers will have of their service providers when it comes to helping them become mature users of these services.

Self-service has been a key component of service desks for a decade but has yet to truly deliver the benefits that organizations were hoping for.

This webcast discusses how service management teams can enable better experiences by providing conversational approaches to issue resolution using virtual agents. Luma, an innovative virtual agent from Serviceaide, guides users to create actionable tickets, performs knowledge lookups and streamlines tasks such as password resets, amongst other capabilities. Best of all, Luma is available 24x7 to ensure customers get their issues resolved rapidly anywhere, at any time.

New ways of working such as DevOps, Lean and Agile are now being used to achieve the scalability, flexibility and innovation provided by the cloud model and digital technologies.
