IT today still operates in silos and, as a result, visibility into IT Operations is significantly limited. According to a 2015 Application Performance Monitoring survey, 65% of surveyed companies own more than 10 different monitoring tools. Yet research indicates that 50% or fewer of the tools companies have purchased are actively being used.
One of the key issues is that each tool provides organizations with only limited, compartmentalized components that do not offer the entire view of the entire IT environment. This narrow, isolated understanding makes it difficult and time consuming to identify the root causes of problems and prevent (or resolve) abnormalities.
