Nexthink Valuable Features

Anand Boudh - PeerSpot reviewer
Senior Specialist – EUC Tools at HCL Technologies

We use the API with PowerShell to automate some reports. This was something that we have used which has saved us a lot of time. This was a manual effort for approximately four hours twice a week (for a total of eight hours a week). We were able to bring that down to one hour just to manage the outputs that we get through the APIs.

Nexthink provides analytics for detailed event data, giving us the ability to really drill-down. We put dashboards in place to be able to find defects, so we need to be a little more proactive with it. We have created some dashboards, like site dashboards, that monitor the performance online. You can monitor it on an individual site, region, or country basis. Wherever you see a dip, then we look at the device performance score. There is a checklist that provides us the scores. Along with that, we now have Digital Experience Scores available. That also helps us in finding out the reasons due to which the performance could have been going down. 

The major difference that I see from the Digital Experience Score is when monitoring business applications. It enables us to monitor 17 business applications at the same time. Previously, we were only focusing on some fixed services, like Office 365 services. For one, we also manually added C2C application services. We weren't actively looking at other business applications other than that. Now we know what applications perform well and which ones need an upgrade. This helped the client to free some network bandwidth too. Since they upgraded the application version, this has also helped them to bring down the usage on the bandwidth part.

I don't think that I ever got stuck. If I am trying to look at something related to the device performance or system information, I have always gotten it.

The most important factor is the data collection, and that's the simplest part of it. But what we do with that data, what is most useful, are things like experience scoring, hardware purchasing, and enhancing support services.

The solution’s visualizations are very good. It's very easy to use them. We're currently developing a three-tiered training model for different levels of consumer. The most basic version of that is purely dashboard. We can give our senior managers, our directors, and our partners a dashboard at a very high level. They can very easily start to drill down by clicking through the dashboard and find stuff that doesn't look right. And our technical teams can use the same thing to identify problems in specific locations.

The aspects related to IT analytics were good. Previously in our organization, we were not using any tools for maintaining our IT-related issues. Once this application was implemented in our organization, we were able to find lots of issues, and we became more proactive and resolve issues proactively in our environment.

The initial setup is very simple. 

We haven't had any issues with stability.

Nexthink provides you with information and gives you an idea of what exactly is happening. You are able to identify if there is a wrong hard disk coming up plus lots of visibility on the endpoint wether it is a PC or a server.

All the features of Nexthink are really useful when it comes to providing visibility into the endpoints and the services that we are monitoring, but the most interesting and useful features are the campaign and remote actions.

The best thing is the remote actions that we can play on all the devices. 

The campaigns are great. When you want to notify the user, we can easily drive them and send them a notification for the environment or anything really critical. If we need to move very quickly, we can use them as well.

The solution is stable.

The auto building capability has been most valuable. It keeps on checking the system in terms of various factors like battery, memory usage and application usage. If it picks up any kind of challenges by using deployed script, it provides notification to the end user stating that there was an issue and that it has been fixed.

Digital Solutions Consultant at a tech consulting company with 51-200 employees

With this solution we are able to link issues to automatic actions that will solve the problem.

We are also able to link the actions to campaigns, which will message the users and link the actions to an FAQ. This can then be reported in a dashboard. All of this is done automatically so there is no manual intervention needed.

One other good thing about this platform, is that changes and improvements are made regularly, so it evolves continuously.

This is a proactive management tool and we make use of the metrics, dashboard creation and complete remote actions on end user machines. If the end user is experiencing issues with a hard disk, we know that capacity will be approximately 80%. We will then do rear triggering on the end user machines.

Nexthink is valuable because it's enabled us to reduce the time it takes to resolve any issues. Our MTTR was very low after we installed Nexthink. We can see the network situation of users and establish where any problems originate.
