Enterprise monitoring is a term that refers to the use of software tools and custom-built or packaged utilities to monitor the enterprise IT environment including web and mobile applications, databases, servers, networks, microservices, and other components.
In order to ensure that users—whether customers or internal employees—receive the best digital experience possible, IT operations teams leverage enterprise monitoring tools to:
- Visualize and better understand how the interconnected components of a service delivery environment influence application performance and availability
- Collect data on the health and behavior of supporting systems and services
- Identify problematic trends and diagnose and resolve critical issues
- Achieve greater overall resilience and stability
Why choose a unified enterprise monitoring platform over traditional siloed tools
Enterprise IT environments are more complex than ever before, bringing together a multiplicity of interdependent components and services spanning different platforms, heterogeneous networks, and hybrid architectures. Trying to manage it all with siloed tools and manual processes isn't realistic if firms want to keep up with the pace of change—in technology and in user expectations—and stay competitive.
To effectively monitor today's complex applications and hybrid infrastructures, firms can leverage intelligent, automated solutions that integrate all of the enterprise monitoring functions they need into one platform, whether it's application performance monitoring, Linux monitoring, or SLA monitoring they require. Instead of juggling multiple tools and spending hours and hours sifting through data, why not use an enterprise monitoring platform that lets you monitor your entire tech stack from a single pane of glass?
