Today’s IT infrastructure environments are extremely complex. Given the dynamic nature of IT, where relationships between services and IT infrastructure are constantly changing, proactively preventing impacts to critical business services is never easy.
Gartner reports that, “By 2020, 30% of new solutions implemented by IT services providers will include AI technologies.” IT Ops teams need an advanced monitoring platform that keeps tabs on service health and utilization trends and provides actionable insights that predict performance and availability issues. One that offers intelligent dashboards and reports that will give you not just a current view of all IT systems but also a historical view of utilization over time that helps you predict future consumption and prevent future headaches.
Here are some of the key capabilities to watch out for when assessing IT infrastructure monitoring solutions to help you predict future impacts to business.
The platform should provide unified monitoring into the physical, virtual and cloud-based infrastructures that support critical services in modern IT environments. This allows you to correlate information across your environment to provide a clear visualization of connected components and predict impacts to the services they support.
With the right analytics tools, you can analyze device performance and availability over time using detailed event and service impact reports in order to better understand the performance and availability of IT infrastructure devices and the services they support.
A modern monitoring solution should automatically highlight anomalous data. This lets you spot upcoming service impacts through real-time root-cause analysis using the dynamic model that identifies hidden dependency issues.
The most useful machine learning insights are informed by real-time infrastructure modeling data as well as data from all other sources.
