In last week's #HDIchat, we discussed how the move to cloud and/or SaaS has affected the support center and desktop support. What happens when a cloud-based application is down? Is there more work being generated for support, or less? Many cloud/SaaS applications update automatically. Do the updates generate work for support? How does this tie into shadow IT?

Read the recap to hear what participants had to say, and then keep the conversation going on HDIConnect!

Join us again this Friday, August 19, for our next #HDIchat (topic: gamification)!
