Did you know that the “X” in SMAX designates “next generation”? SMAX uses embedded machine learning and analytics to provide an engaging and responsive user experience that’s all about simplifying the way businesses manage IT services and assets. A next generation solution like SMAX deserves next generation training - and we are excited to announce the first two course offers are now available.
Powerful software is only as powerful as those who use it making user adoption is the best indicator of software success in achieving business goals. Often when I talk about user adoption, people immediately assume I'm talking about avoiding shelfware. While shelfware is an issue early in the life cycle, I see a bigger concern being potential software underuse – where informally trained users may familiarize themselves only with the capabilities needed to enable them to continue doing things the old familiar way, rather than adopting the new best practices that unleash the full benefits of the software. Underuse can be hard-to-detect. A common indicator is that the business fails to realize the expected direct and downstream software benefits. Training makes a difference.
