The Forrester EUEM Wave Report Breakdown

The Forrester EUEM Wave Report Breakdown
published
January 26th

As reported by Forrester in Q4, 2020, nearly a dozen technology vendors are riding a new wave of End-User Experience Management (EUEM) in IT right now—an exciting, emerging market that directly benefits IT departments and the employees they support.

Nexthink landed atop Forrester’s assessment of 11 of the most significant vendors in this category for its ability to “focus on understanding human perception of the tech experience,” and offer key differentiators like qualitative feedback, root-cause analysis, and unique remediation capabilities that few if any companies can match.

EUEM is still an emerging space where vendors are increasingly analyzing more aspects of the tech experience for their customers, whether at the device, app, network, or external provider level. While many vendors take a particular cut of this equation, Nexthink is the only company looking at the bigger picture. We serve IT teams with the ability to measure the entire Digital Employee Experience and deliver meaningful end-user support services that remove annoying digital disruptions, wherever they may originate.
