The common practice in the IT world is to find ways to solve problems fast, but wouldn’t it be much better to prevent those problems. An effective infrastructure monitoring is more than just making sure that everything is working as it should; it helps to create and shape your overall IT strategy to be able to deliver outstanding performance for your end users. Another great aspect of monitoring is that it helps identify problems before they happen. If you are continuously monitoring your systems you are more likely to pick up on any warning signs and can step in before the problem escalates and affects the end user.
Monitoring overall improves performance and increases your teams productivity by allowing them to prevent problems rather than waiting for them to happen by doing so reducing downtime to a minimum when it occurs as well as preventing business losses.
