Customer delight and empathy drive next wave of consumer-grade mobile solutions from InfoSight

HPE InfoSIght_mobile app_blog.jpgIntroducing the HPE InfoSight mobile app, designed to meet the needs of our customers.

The explosion of mobile apps, network security, and connectivity has changed the way we live, work, and interact with the world around us. Enterprise companies use smartphones and the latest tech gadgets in the workplace to keep up with the competition.

The traditional 9-to-5 work day doesn’t exist in a technology-first world. Mobile devices allow us to work even when we’re not at “work,” making flexible working the new normal. We want a seamless user experience when we change from desktop to mobile app. We expect the same ease-of use and simplicity in our enterprise apps as we do with our consumer social networks like Facebook and Uber. The need for the consumerization of IT in the enterprise is apparent. HPE built the InfoSight app to meet the needs of our customers.

The InfoSight app delivers a world-class, consumer-grade mobile experience for IT admins powered by AI-driven predictive analytics to stay on top of infrastructure issues. Designed as a companion app to the web portal, the app helps users to get alert notifications, see the issues on the dashboard at a glance and collaborate with team members.Image2.png
