Financial organizations have been at the leading edge of adopting new IT technologies. A number of new services for consumers have been made possible by the adoption of modern technologies – cloud, microservices, containers and virtualization. Web technologies have been widely used to support customer-facing applications, and digital workspaces like Citrix and VMware Horizon have been deployed for supporting stock traders, remote developers and such. ATM terminals and mobile touchless payment systems are all now connected to the network, and almost all financial organizations have large call centers to support customer queries or to support their own employees.
IT is at the core of a financial organization’s business today, and if there is slowness with any of the key technologies being used, this can impact the organization’s brand, affect user experience, and result in lost revenue. It is no wonder that IT infrastructure and application monitoring is critical for financial institutions.
A recent Standish Company report indicates that 1 minute of downtime can cause a bank to lose over $7000 in lost revenue. Therefore, just three downtime incidents in a year, each lasting two hours on average, can cause a revenue loss of $2.52 million! Therefore, it is no surprise that financial institutions have to pay great attention to monitoring digital user experience.
eG Enterprise provides a full suite of digital user experience monitoring capabilities so that IT admins and executives have insight into all aspects of digital user experience.
Whether they need to support remote developers or workers, or in call centers to provide remote access to customer records to call center agents, or to provide secure, fast access to stock traders on a trading floor, financial institutions make use of digital workspace technologies like Citrix and VMware Horizon. Slowness in accessing virtual desktops or key applications can result in lost productivity and cause user frustration.
While there are many monitoring tool options, there are few with expertise in digital workspace technologies. Domain expertise in these technologies is a must for fast and accurate diagnosis of problems. E.g., when a user complains of slow logon, where is the problem? Is it due to connection brokering, VM start, logon scripts, GPOs, profile loading, etc. Likewise, when a user is seeing slow screen refresh, is the issue due to the client, or the user’s network, or due to the data center network or due to the virtual desktop? Only monitoring tools with deep digital workspace insights can provide answers to these questions.
With close to two decades of experience working with different digital workspace technologies, eG Enterprise is a readymade solution for any digital workspace: Citrix, VMware Horizon, IGEL, AWS WorkSpaces, Azure Virtual Desktop, or just Microsoft RDS.
Financial institutions have a plethora of monitoring tools deployed already. Yet there are several monitoring gaps. Furthermore, the monitoring tools are used by IT operations teams and IT help desks merely act as a pass-through. The result: many bridge calls involving IT experts, lots of finger-pointing, and longer problem resolution time.
Many leading financial institutions worldwide have used eG Enterprise for:
Over 30 million account holders trust NH Bank with their banking needs and customer satisfaction is a core focus area of NH Bank and the bank's call center operations and 1000s of call center agents rely on eG Enterprise to ensure they can serve their customers well.
