Knoa Software announced the availability of two ROI tools to help prospects and customers with quantifying the business impact of user experience initiatives.

The new Knoa ROI Calculator and the financial impact analytics included in the Knoa Analytics application enable organizations to quantify the ROI of their own user experience initiatives, in the context of their digital transformation projects.

“Organizations that leverage Knoa’s UEM software can be confident that their usage of their enterprise applications (SAP, Oracle, etc.) is truly optimized,” said Brian Berns, CEO, Knoa Software. “Knoa UEM drives improvements across all business execution areas, resulting in increased user adoption, high productivity, seamless process execution and, ultimately, improved business results.”

The Knoa ROI Calculator enables businesses to estimate the cost savings they would derive from using Knoa UEM in their own environment to drive increased efficiency of their workforce and business operations. According to a recent IDC survey of Knoa customers, enterprises using Knoa UEM report an average three-year ROI of 671% and increased gross user productivity of 15%, as well as efficiency gains of 30% for business processes teams, 31% for incident response, 16% for help desk teams and 21% for security.

The financial impact analytics included in the Knoa Analytics application empower Knoa customers to quantify the impact of digital transformation projects such as cloud migrations by measuring the impact of technology or process changes on user adoption, experience, and productivity. The financial impact reports can also be used to project the potential impact of such initiatives in the early planning stages, and to justify further technology investments.

“Solutions that focus on employee usage analytics in cloud applications should not only allow teams to plan and prioritize the migration process and measure success (or failure) in terms of employee productivity and adoption indications, but they should also offer a clear way to measure the cumulative ROI of the migration, and more importantly, to allow organizations to significantly optimize it. Knoa Software provides a good example of this approach. The company first proved its solution on the SAP ERP suite on large deployments where common before-and-after studies prove either difficult, time consuming or both. It works by capturing metadata about the user experience, a category of software often referred to as UEM or User Experience Management.” (Beagle Research Group, Iterative ROI: A Just In Time Tool for Executives Calculating the Value of Cloud Migration)

When a website or app fails or falters, the standard operating procedure is to assemble a sizable team to quickly "divide and conquer" to find a solution. The details of the problem can usually be found somewhere among millions of log events and metrics, leading to slow and painstaking searches that can take hours and often involve handoffs between experts in different areas of the software. The immediate goal in these situations is not to be comprehensive, but rather to troubleshoot until you find a solution that remedies the symptom, even if the underlying root cause is not addressed ...
