Disruption and maintenance work in IT can interrupt the workflows of many users, resulting in a great deal of irritation. Almost everyone is familiar with the problem: The e-mail system isn’t working, or there is no internet connection. But what’s causing the problem?
Is it a central problem, or can it be found on the PC that is trying to make the connection? If your colleagues are having the same problem, the user contacts IT support – probably about the same time your colleagues are doing the same. The users are put on hold, and there is a spike in the number of service tickets.
