Managing too many tools

Too many Tools

Too many narrowly-focused monitoring tools provide only a fragmented, incomplete view of today’s deep technology stacks and hybrid environments. Simple is better: IT organizations that reduce sprawl by adopting multi-purpose unified monitoring can be more productive, more efficient, and better at preventing downtime.

Isolated Silos

Using too many tools can slow or prevent implementation of organization-wide standards that can improve service levels and benefit the bottom line. A single unified monitoring platform provides a shared framework for visualizing, alerting, and collaborating on issues, and a single point for integrating ITOM, SIEM, and similar tools.

Eliminate Extra Costs

Using many different monitoring tools imposes heavy costs -- costs that are mostly redundant. Consolidating onto one unified monitoring platform that works at scale and provides out-of-the-box integrations with all relevant technologies can eliminate the greater portion of these costs and associated labor.
