Brussels, February 14, 2013 – Getronics, leading service provider in ICT infrastructure and outsourcing, today announced a strategic partnership with Nexthink®, provider of end-user centric IT infrastructure monitoring and analytics. Getronics will leverage Nexthink’s patented technology as part of its Managed Services platform to deliver world class workplace transformation projects, proactive user-centric service management, extended end-user computing security compliance and infrastructure cost optimization services.
Nexthink monitors IT infrastructure in real-time from the end-user perspective. The company maps all the IT services delivered to end-users’ physical and virtual devices. It analyzes all relevant end-user events including IT infrastructure changes, application use, performance, bandwidth, failures, security issues, and workplace performance. Nexthink applies real-time enterprise-wide IT analytics to detect abnormal behavior.
Using Nexthink, Getronics is able to determine root cause for complex issues, discover security risks and threats and optimize the infrastructure costs in a way no one else can.
Nexthink allows Getronics to monitor the IT infrastructure from where it matters the most: the end- user workplace. Getronics can proactively detect performance issues in real-time, rapidly diagnose the root cause, understand the end-users impacted and resolve multiple issues simultaneously.
