Knoa Software announced Knoa Analytics, a new component of Knoa UEM, which is also sold by SAP as SAP User Experience Management (SAP UEM) by Knoa.
This new analytics platform extends and complements the current product offering with a new set of analytical capabilities geared towards accelerating adoption on enterprise software such as SAP, increasing user productivity, and offering more intuitive insights into business performance, as well as team-level and project-based collaboration.
The new component delivers enhanced analytical capabilities to help organizations leverage Knoa’s unique user experience data for key business initiatives, such as migrating to SAP S/4HANA and cloud-based enterprise solutions, prioritizing automation initiatives, and optimizing and managing efficiencies of a remote workforce.
The Knoa Analytics platform provides a new layer of insights into user interactions with SAP and non-SAP applications, enabling business and IT stakeholders to drive faster value for technology initiatives.
“We’ve been working closely with customers and partners, to better understand how Knoa’s unique data can be applied to solve critical business challenges,” said Bogdan Nica, VP of Product and Services, Knoa. “As a result of this collaboration, we were able to identify and launch key new capabilities that we believe will help customers drive accelerated value with our solutions.”
Key highlights of the new analytics platform include:
- Guided access to data, for faster onboarding of new users
- Use case-specific analytics for top priorities such as S/4HANA migrations and user enablement
- New analytics in support of Robotic Process Automation (RPA) initiatives
- Exploratory reports for open-ended analysis of the data, targeted to expert users
- Financial models for computing the business impact of IT projects, based on Knoa’s user experience metrics
- Collaboration and productivity features, such as ability to create and share projects
“Knoa is executing on our vision to provide insightful user analytics to drive successful digital transformation projects and improve software adoption. We are delivering an innovative user analytics solution for organizations to realize the full value of enterprise applications,” said Brian Berns, CEO of Knoa. “Many business leaders are flying blind when it comes to understanding the efficiencies of their most valued resource, their employees, in their interaction with business applications. This has been further exacerbated by the transition of the workplace to a remote access dynamic, requiring business leaders to deploy technology innovations to ensure employee productivity and engagement. Our goal is to bridge that usability and user productivity gap and, with this release, we are re-affirming that commitment to our customers.”
The Knoa Analytics application will be available in Q3 2020 to all new and existing Knoa cloud customers, as an add-on to the standard SAP UEM by Knoa cloud-based subscription, for no additional cost. Initially, the add-on is available for cloud deployments only, but an on-premises deployment model is part of the future roadmap.
Michael Olson on the AI+ITOPS Podcast: "I really see AIOps as being a core requirement for observability because it ... applies intelligence to your telemetry data and your incident data ... to potentially predict problems before they happen."
Enterprise ITOM and ITSM teams have been welcoming of AIOps, believing that it has the potential to deliver great value to them as their IT environments become more distributed, hybrid and complex. Not so with DevOps teams. It's safe to say they've kept AIOps at arm's length, because they don't think it's relevant nor useful for what they do. Instead, to manage the software code they develop and deploy, they've focused on observability ...
The post-pandemic environment has resulted in a major shift on where SREs will be located, with nearly 50% of SREs believing they will be working remotely post COVID-19, as compared to only 19% prior to the pandemic, according to the 2020 SRE Survey Report from Catchpoint and the DevOps Institute ...

Will Cappelli on the AI+ITOPS Podcast: "I'll predict that in 5 years time, APM as we know it will have been completely mutated into an observability plus dynamic analytics capability."
When you consider that the average end-user interacts with at least 8 applications, then think about how important those applications are in the overall success of the business and how often the interface between the application and the hardware needs to be updated, it's a potential minefield for business operations. Any single update could explode in your face at any time ...
Despite the efforts in modernizing and building a robust infrastructure, IT teams routinely deal with the application, database, hardware, or software outages that can last from a few minutes to several days. These types of incidents can cause financial losses to businesses and damage its reputation ...
