July 24, 2014, Milpitas, California – noHold, Inc. announced today that they have joined the LANDESK One technology partner program to provide employees with the next generation, self-service help desk solution. LANDESK One is designed to provide opportunities for ISVs to create innovative and complementary technology on the LANDESK platforms. The program advances LANDESK’s user-oriented IT vision by enabling ISV partners to amplify the complete LANDESK portfolio to create customized, user-focused solutions. noHold and LANDESK are coming together to support the need of interactive technology for internal customers (employees).

Research firm Gartner predicts that "By 2016, 35% of IT operations organizations will have 75% of IT service desk contacts from the business resolved by virtual assistants." (Source: Gartner, Predicts 2014: Automation Brings Promise to IT Operations Management, but at What Cost? 12 December 2013, Authors: Greene, J., Colville, R., et al.) Albert is designed to increase employee self-service by providing 24x7 assistance to questions that would typically be sent to the queue at the help desk. If necessary, Albert can escalate to LANDESK Service Desk while passing on the conversation either to a live agent or by automatically creating a case. By doing so, help desk agents can capture the root issue and further address the issue as quickly as possible.
