Business growth can be measured by the performance of the IT infrastructure, which is an integral part of any organization. According to research by Riverbed, 73% of C-suites say that granular visibility into the network and other components opens the door to business innovation. Simply put, driving the growth of the health of the business depends on increased visibility and well-organized management of the IT infrastructure.
With the best IT infrastructure monitoring tool in place, business owners can ensure these goals are met. A powerful tool proactively and meticulously monitors an IT infrastructure and alerts technicians when an error is about to occur, helping them avoid it on time.
Powerful business challenges, scalability of infrastructure and increasing complexity of technology standardize the use of IT infrastructure monitoring tools in our digital ecosystem. However, the daunting challenge is to find the best tool for your organization out of a myriad of options, ranging from effective to ineffective. Here are some key points to help you choose the right IT infrastructure monitoring software with effective and proactive error handling capabilities.
- Unified IT infrastructure monitoring: IT infrastructure consists of many components, including network, storage, physical and virtual servers, on-premises applications, and cloud applications. A good IT infrastructure monitoring tool should be well equipped to monitor all of this at all times, transparently and simultaneously. Using a single tool avoids unnecessary conventional problems such as constant tool change, not resolving critical errors on time, and keeping records of multiple licenses. It also helps you cut expenses and run your business within your means.
Multi-vendor support: The days of IT managers buying all critical IT infrastructure components under one roof are long gone. Nowadays, companies buy components from multiple suppliers according to their needs. Therefore, IT infrastructure monitoring tools have become necessary to support multi-vendor network endpoints. While each device varies in complexity and criticality, an IT infrastructure monitoring tool requires flexibility to meticulously track the components of your IT infrastructure, regardless of vendor.
Customizable visualization: A monitoring tool can give technicians visual access to all the components of your IT infrastructure. Centralized, customizable visibility across all network endpoints down to the smallest detail ensures that no part of the infrastructure falls into technicians’ blind spots. Customizing the dashboard and other visualization features is crucial because it allows them to effortlessly have a clearer and deeper view of the IT infrastructure. In addition, technicians can save a lot of time and energy as they do not need to change tabs to achieve such a high level of visibility.
- Multichannel notifications: Technicians cannot find a solution to a network error if they do not know about it or receive inadequate information. Therefore, the IT infrastructure monitoring tool must have the ability to send instant alerts via SMS, email or other support to the right team with precise details. Technicians and IT managers can be made aware of potential obstacles even outside of working hours so they can be resolved quickly. It is also essential to have provisions for third-party integrations. A monitoring tool with such reliable functionality will allow technicians to easily act on a network fault and avoid any major failure.
- Out-of-the-box automation: Rudimentary, repetitive maintenance tasks and L1 and L2 troubleshooting actions can be off a technician’s checklist by leveraging automation. It frees up time for technicians to work on high priority tasks which result in greater efficiency and productivity. Business owners who invest in a holistic IT infrastructure monitoring tool with automation can save money in the long run. In addition, by automating certain tasks, technicians can ensure consistent performance and avoid any issues caused by human error.
