GroupLink's college and K12 help desk software battles IT Klingons and helps avoid id10t errors, benefiting technicians, managers, and end users. Technicians and managers can analyze trouble tickets through powerful, customizable, detailed reports, and quickly identify specific technical issues, such as id10t errors. Managers can also view reports for their technicians, showing workloads and key performance indicators (KPIs).

GroupLink's incident management software provides powerful templates that simplify processes. The templates can be automated and run on a schedule for routine tasks and processes. Tickets and corresponding tasks can also be auto-routed via workflow to the correct technician in sequential order.

With GroupLink's ticketing system, end users, including teachers, professors, and other school staff, can quickly find and address solutions to common issues in the self-help knowledgebase, reducing common id10t errors submitted to technicians. When trouble tickets are submitted, technicians and users are automatically updated via email when issues or requests are updated or solved, keeping the users informed and more involved in the process.

GroupLink customer Angie von Gersdorff, System Support Specialist at Washington County Public Schools, stated, "By providing [the end user] with the means to see the status of their request, they are more involved and feel like they are part of the solution. By keeping our schools more informed, we have eliminated guesswork and increased the ability to become an active part of the solution."

IoT & Smart Cities Stories
The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved. Attendees will learn how emerging composable infrastructure solutions deliver the adaptive architecture needed to manage this new data reality. Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-c...
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by ...
The explosion of new web/cloud/IoT-based applications and the data they generate are transforming our world right before our eyes. In this rush to adopt these new technologies, organizations are often ignoring fundamental questions concerning who owns the data and failing to ask for permission to conduct invasive surveillance of their customers. Organizations that are not transparent about how their systems gather data telemetry without offering shared data ownership risk product rejection, regu...

Poor data quality and analytics drive down business value. In fact, Gartner estimated that the average financial impact of poor data quality on organizations is $9.7 million per year. But bad data is much more than a cost center. By eroding trust in information, analytics and the business decisions based on these, it is a serious impediment to digital transformation.

Enterprises have taken advantage of IoT to achieve important revenue and cost advantages. What is less apparent is how incumbent enterprises operating at scale have, following success with IoT, built analytic, operations management and software development capabilities - ranging from autonomous vehicles to manageable robotics installations. They have embraced these capabilities as if they were Silicon Valley startups.
As IoT continues to increase momentum, so does the associated risk. Secure Device Lifecycle Management (DLM) is ranked as one of the most important technology areas of IoT. Driving this trend is the realization that secure support for IoT devices provides companies the ability to deliver high-quality, reliable, secure offerings faster, create new revenue streams, and reduce support costs, all while building a competitive advantage in their markets. In this session, we will use customer use cases...
