  • Saves time, reduces financial risk, and keeps employees productive

The Requirement for Conversation-Level Speed

CIOs have recognized that artificial intelligence (AI) in the form of chatbots has the potential to solve two key problems: (1) low adoption of employee self-service portals, and (2) high service desk call volumes.

That assertion is correct, but it brings the requirement for conversation-level speed. Espressive delivers conversation-level speed by working with AWS.

Modern Apps Require a Modern Architecture

Unlike legacy ITSM solutions that use per-customer virtual machines (VMs), Espressive takes advantage of an elastic architecture with a modern, container-based design.

  • The AWS EC2 architecture supports the performance requirements of AI-based applications
  • AWS multiple data center availability, combined with the stateless connectivity of Barista, ensure maximum availability
  • The container-based architecture leverages the on-demand scalability of AWS to deliver continued performance, even at peak loads with thousands of users
