Zendesk is a cloud-based ITSM tool designed to help IT teams manage workflows such as incident, problem, change, and release management. The software offers a range of features such as automation, analytics, and collaboration tools within a centralized platform where businesses can streamline IT operations, enhance service delivery, and improve customer satisfaction. Additionally, Zendesk enables end users to submit and monitor their own requests, simplifying the overall service experience.

Integrating Zendesk with ManageEngine ADManager Plus reduces the burden on IT staff by automating user lifecycle management. By synchronizing the data between the systems, IT teams will now have the option to manage user provisioning, password resets and updates, groups, and permissions directly from Zendesk.
