In the ever-evolving landscape of IT service management, the concept of “Shift Left” has emerged as a game-changer. The idea is simple yet transformative: empowering end users to solve their IT Helpdesk issues quickly and efficiently without extensive IT support. One pioneering company leading this shift is Anakage, whose innovative approach enables ServiceNow clients to implement a “Zero Touch IT Helpdesk” for Level 1 (L1) end-point and end-user usability issues. This blog will explore how Anakage is revolutionizing IT support and enhancing the ServiceNow experience.
The Shift Left Phenomenon
“Shift Left” is more than just a buzzword in the IT industry. It represents a fundamental shift in the way organizations approach IT service delivery. Instead of relying solely on IT specialists to resolve routine issues, the Shift Left approach empowers end users to take control of their IT problems, reducing the workload on IT support teams and increasing overall efficiency.
The Challenge: Level 1 Support
Level 1 support typically involves addressing common, recurring issues such as password resets, software installations, and basic troubleshooting. These issues, while critical to daily operations, can put a significant strain on IT support staff and resources. Traditional methods often lead to delays in issue resolution, increased workload, and decreased end-user satisfaction.
