Enterprises moving to Office 365 cloud-based applications require a new approach to ensuring deployment success. Of course, your end-users should receive a fantastic application experience, whether with Teams, SharePoint, OneDrive, etc. But when problems surface with slowness or call quality, the Microsoft Service Health Dashboard provides no visibility beyond their network – leaving IT admins in the dark.
A recent Exoprise customer survey found that 60-70% of application problems occur within the enterprise environment or home network/ISP. So, if you need to resolve Teams call quality problems, it's best to investigate your network before you try and finger point to Microsoft. In today's article, we see how this applies to Exoprise when team members work from home or in a hybrid work setting. Last Friday, at about 10:00 am EST, I jumped on an impromptu video call with one of my sales colleagues to discuss an ongoing marketing project. Although I am based in the Northern Virginia area, my comrade (as they say in British English!) is from Boston.
The leap to remote work happened nearly overnight with the pandemic, and it’s clear that hybrid work and digital dexterity is the way of the future. As a result of this shift in the way we work, companies have invested in new technologies to adapt to the growing remote world, with 69% of companies planning to increase their investment in digital tools even more in 2022. Additionally, over 90% of businesses strive to implement hybrid work environments.
According to a new study, the hybrid work model reduces attrition by a third. As the pandemic shifted work to remote, with some companies going fully remote work for over two years, many organizations are looking to continue to allow hybrid work environments. In 2022, more than 90% of midsize companies plan to implement a hybrid work structure. One of our customers practices this model and is always interested to know what new features can enhance the digital experience of their distributed workforce.
When end-users constantly complain about bad network quality or poor audio video conference experience, you know it's time to shop for a Team's monitoring tool. And your Teams monitoring solution needs to be proactive, provide insight into hybrid work environments, and support real-time diagnosis of network issues for your end-users no matter where they work from. Business leaders rely more than ever on technology teams to deliver a successful company ROI. But problems with complex Teams deployment and unsatisfied workers can lead to increased costs and lower productivity.
The Exoprise marketing team sat down with their CEO, Jason Lieblich, to discuss predictive analytics, market trends, and the technology’s usage in troubleshooting network issues.
