Software components

Nexthink is the innovator of End-user IT Analytics for security, ITSM and workplace transformation. Nexthink maps all the IT services, how they are being consumed, and how the IT infrastructure is operating, from the only perspective that matters most, the end-users (workers). Nexthink provides essential visibility and insight into IT operations and security for IT Governance.

Nexthink Architecture

The architecture of Nexthink has been designed to simplify operations, ensure scaling and allow a rapid deployment. The system is composed of six main software components:

  • The Collector captures information from all end-user desktops and laptops.
  • The Mobile Bridge captures mobile device information from Microsoft Exchange.
  • The Engine aggregates Collector and Mobile Bridge information and provides real-time IT analytics.
  • The Finder is the rich client application for searching and analyzing data on Engines.
  • The Portal aggregates Engine information and provides dashboarding, reporting and long-term trending analytics.
  • The Library is a cloud knowledge database.
