Hi! My name is James.
As an IT professional working with a top SaaS company, I’ve learned about many best practices for evaluating IT infrastructure monitoring tools to ensure that any tools I implement are guaranteed to achieve my goals. If you’re looking to ensure that any monitoring tools you implement will provide you with the results you desire, keep these evaluation recommendations in mind before you select your next tool.
Before you implement any new monitoring tools, it’s essential to verify that any tools you’re looking to implement will integrate with your existing IT operations management tools or else you will not be able to meet any business goals you’re trying to reach with your new tools.
IT Process Automation
IT infrastructure management tools provide basic capabilities making it essential for you to select tools that provide an intuitive interface to build and easily implement IT process automation.
Some tools use basic pattern recognition to automate the setting of thresholds which can be used to ease the efforts needed from your operations team toward manually setting thresholds for identifying actionable events that have the right priorities.
SaaS and On-Premises Offerings
It’s essential to understand the differences between on-premises and cloud-only functionality and which features will be provided by the vendor before you implement any SaaS or On-Premise tools.
