Doing more with less with SupportOps will be the norm - ‘CX is the new revenue driver’ - sure! but that memo is yet to reach CFO’s who classify support as a cost center. Budgets will be tight, making AI powered SupportOps a top consideration to integrate and automate CRMs and back end systems for cost efficiencies.
Bringing DevOps into the SupportOps fold becomes important - DevOps has remained a silo, time to demystify and empower support teams with actionable DevOps insights via SupportOps platform.
Embracing AI as mission critical - Launch of ChatGPT has made us all take notice. AI has gone mainstream and support teams need to unlock the power of AI with automated tagging, issue discovery and triaging. Manual tagging is passe’.
