Is your business deploying Windows 10? Are you ready to support it on an ongoing basis? While the initial deployment will be handled much the same as any other OS upgrade, Windows 10 isn’t a set and forget implementation. Your business will rely heavily on an engineering function to handle the planning, customisation and standardisation of the upgrade, but the IT team needs to find a new way to manage the updates that Windows 10 will bring every 6 months or so.

With greater demand for mobility and cloud based apps, new technology continues to create complexity in the workplace. We really are at a time of great innovation and change. This is both exciting and challenging for those of us in the IT space. In this time of transformation, how can your Service Desk better support emerging technology?


Are you buried under a mound of aged tickets? The daily demand to keep your technology running smoothly can mean you miss the wood for the trees. As a manager of a high volume Service Desk, it is easy to overlook or even turn a blind eye to ageing tickets. But deep down, you know that this will cause untold problems in the long run.


Everyone talks about the challenges of handling a large number of users. But what about the IT Support desk that handles a small user base?

Let’s take a look at some of the challenges and the solutions that be applied to resolve them effectively.
