User Tracking – Monitor Remote Users and Analyze Efficiency

No comments

Something which the digitalization trend did not manage to do, was done by the global pandemic. And this is the global switch to remote work, remote learning and remote collaboration. Many companies and industries were thinking that allowing their staff to work remotely is not possible and will harm more than bring benefits. But when the pandemic started, many organizations needed to make a fast transition to remote work and remote work organization. If you need to manage a small team, it is relatively easy. But if you are a software development company for example, and you need to manage developers, system engineers, administrators, account billable hours for customers, etc. user tracking and user monitoring is a must-have. And it is not because you do not have trust in employees, but because you need to ensure following certain procedures, ensure the security of your network and internal systems and the quality of your service.

Overcoming Bandwidth Bottlenecks


What is bandwidth? Bandwidth refers to the amount of data that can be sent or received by a particular device in a stipulated period. This is measured in Mbps (Megabits per second). Very often, people use bandwidth to refer to the speed of the internet connection. 

However, that is not the case. Talking about bandwidth vs. speed, the former helps understand the quantity of data transferred per second. At the same time, the latter focuses on the rate of data transfer from the source to the destination. So, that’s the difference between them.

Network bottlenecks are common in today’s times. With the increase in internet usage, there is more traffic flowing through every network line. How do you deal with such network congestions? How do you overcome bandwidth bottlenecks? Here are some ideas that you can implement and see the difference.
