How to increase product adoption in your team

I love discovering new tools. Finding the right tool is like finding a unicorn. However, that feeling can quickly fade when you realize the tool isn’t for you.
The product must work for all members of your team, including the team next to you, the team across the hall, and so on.
You get the idea. It’s difficult to imagine everyone being as happy as you were at beginning.
You want your team to love a new tool. It’s possible to get your team to adopt the tool if you play your cards well.
What is product adoption?
Product adoption refers to the process by which users are made aware of a tool and determine its value before incorporating it into their daily work routine. It is typically broken down into four stages:
Awareness
Interest
Evaluation
Conversion
Product adoption is often seen from the perspective that it involves creating and selling tools. This article will look at product adoption from the other perspective. We’ll evaluate product options and work with your team to implement and embrace a suitable one.
Why is product adoption important
It’s obvious why user adoption is so important for product development: high retention = high revenue. It’s not a straight line from the user perspective.
The bottom line is of paramount importance. The bottom line is that switching to a new tool will increase productivity and result in higher output and lower levels of churn.
Personal happiness is what I consider success. You win if the product improves the satisfaction of a team member or removes frustration from their job or tasks.
5 steps to increase product acceptance
You want to make the transition to a new tool easier for everyone? These 5 steps will make product adoption easier and help your team achieve success.
Include inclusion in your product adoption plan
Before you start to research, plan your strategy.
To choose a product, do market research and test it.
Plan for the onboarding of your team
Your success (and failures!) can be measured
1. Include inclusion in your product adoption plan
If you are in charge, you can simply choose the tool you want and announce the big switch Monday. We all know this won’t work.
After years of building websites, I have learned that the journey to get there is more important than the final result. This is true for adopting a new tool together with your team: Inclusion matters.
Let’s take a look at some ways you can make sure the right people are seated at the table.
Identify your stakeholders
The first step is to decide who should have the right to choose and implement a new tool. You might choose to involve smaller groups or create different levels of involvement.
Who and when should you include? These questions can help you decide:
How long do they have to take part?
Will they be vocal in their support for the change?
Will they use it often or less frequently?
Do they have a unique view of product needs?
Are they a leader in the team that can influence others’ opinions?
Are they able to make changes?
Are they able to adapt quickly to new technology
Are they able to influence decisions?
Find different ways to involve people in this process
Once you have compiled a list of people, decide when and how to include each group.
Although every team is unique, here are some options that you might want to consider.
Survey: Send a survey out to large groups of users in order to get feedback on product requirements, frustrations and ideas.
User testing: Test the tool with at least 5-8 people to see how they use it. Note what features they don’t like and where they get frustrated.
Focus groups and interviews with stakeholders: Talk to individuals, teams and departments about how the tool interacts with them. This is a great way to identify and resolve problems.

Multicloud Storage Service Spans AWS Microsoft Azure Nimble Storage Inc. has today launched a beta offering that claims to be the only enterprise-grade multicloud block store service for Amazon Web Services Inc. (AWS), and Microsoft Azure public cloud. The product is called Nimble Cloud Volumes, and its enterprise-grade availability as well as data services can be used to help organizations move new types enterprise apps to the cloud. Nimble Storage believes that the first wave cloud apps will be mostly content-centric, native Web and mobile apps. They lack enterprise-friendly features like data durability and data services such as snapshots, and the ability to share the same volumes with multiple hosts. The next wave of cloud applications comprises traditional transactional-centric workloads — like transactional databases — moving to the public cloud space, with stringent storage requirements. The company stated that NCV flash-based storage could provide enterprise functionality, opening up new frontiers. It also offers other benefits, such as the elimination of cloud vendor lock-in, better data reliability, and uninterrupted data access. Ajay Singh, a senior executive at AWS, stated that the NCV service delivers flash storage volumes or block storage to AWS EC2 instances and Azure Virtual machines. It offers significant advantages over native cloud block storage services such as Amazon EBS and Azure Disk Volumes. The company highlighted the following three main benefits of the new NCV service:
