How to avoid ‘toolsprawl’ and reduce monitoring silos
If you’re a monitoring admin in your organization, you’re probably all too familiar with the load of different monitoring tools covering different aspects of the business, and also with the massive inconvenience that comes with it.
Say you have SCOM for server infrastructure, a different tool for APM, another tool for networks, and yet another tool for ITSM. With each additional tool, the overhead of management, administration and of course data consumption becomes increasingly annoying. Which is exactly why we come across a lot of existing customers and prospects who are tired of managing each tool individually. They want to be able to consume all the data from these sources together in a single pane of glass, instead of having to switch between different windows, browsers and softwares all the time.
Imagine having a true single destination for all your data visualization, to be able to display data about a particular business service from a variety of sources, and for all the audiences – from a monitoring admin to applications owners to management.
That vision sound good to you? Time to turn it into reality!
