Nexthink designed the platform components to simplify operations, ensure scaling and allow quick deployment by freeing the customer from infrastructure management. The solution includes a cloud platform, aggregating data and providing real-time IT analytics as well as endpoint agents and a web interface.
The endpoint agents
Nexthink Collector and the Applications browser extension are endpoint agents installed on employee devices. They report properties from the devices of employees such as the operating system, RAM, CPU model, and others. Refer to the Collector overview documentation for more information.
The web interface
The Nexthink web interface provides real-time access to data gathered by Nexthink agents using powerful visualization tools and techniques. It allows you to search and analyze information stored in the data storage layer using various modules.
