Always available, secure applications as result of intelligent and proactive monitoring

It was just ten years ago that applications were more of an afterthought, than core to a business. Now, with the rise of software and the emphasis on things like digital transformation, the cloud and automation, the application has become the lifeblood for many organizations. Today, without applications it’s practically impossible to finish daily tasks. Applications are, increasingly, also becoming the key revenue source for many companies. From the recent Gartner Worldwide IT Spending forecast, while IT spending had remained stagnant for many years, the market began to pick up in 2017 increasing 3.8 per cent to $3.5BN, and enterprise software is one of the driving forces.

The rise of applications along with the change of application architectures, the introduction of cloud services and increased security challenges, has ushered in new requirements for IT professionals and the organizations they serve.

A few of the new requirements include the following:

  • Increase in need for application stability.
  • Distribution of IT among DevOps teams
  • Need for effective insight into application performance and problems for application owner’s teams
  • Security professionals that are highly specialized and able to protect from cyber-attacks.

With these new requirements, now more than ever before, there is a need for efficient communication among teams and visibility into all elements of application delivery. Efficient communications will assist in maximizing application uptime and in turn securing applications.

We’ve been helping organizations maximize application uptime and secure applications by delivering monitoring solutions to help monitor and report on many of the leading industry applications including Citrix, F5, Microsoft and Nutanix.

Thanks to this we are able to detect and help prevent numerous issues for application availability and performance and help increase application stability while providing effective insight into performance and problems for the DevOps team.
