Who Can Benefit From Unified Monitoring
Unified monitoring is for any organization that uses IT operations extensively in their business. Many times, the organizations who need unified monitoring have experienced outage and availability issues, have in-house solutions that struggle to scale or don’t meet regulatory requirements, lack of visibility into their infrastructure, or don’t have the ability to do reporting (for example: SLA compliance reports).
Unified monitoring is prevalent in a variety of industries, including: financial, government, telecommunications, healthcare, education, manufacturing, technology and more. Wherever there is IT infrastructure, there is a need for unified monitoring.
- System and IT Ops Administrators need complete visibility into the IT infrastructure and an automated solution that lets them focus on their priority work.
- IT Managers need customizable metrics and performance indicators for reporting to executives.
- Capacity planners need accurate information to make budgeting decisions
- Executives need accurate information to make pertinent business decisions as organizations evolve.
Should you use a SAAS or On-Premise Solution?
Some monitoring solutions are SaaS-based while others are on-premise. SaaS-based solutions are
hosted on the cloud. With an on-premise solution, you control the data on your own network. This is
typically beneficial for organizations that need to protect their data. Knowing what is best for your
organization is a key consideration.
