Nowadays, it is quite difficult to find a company that does not use technology.
It is common for any technology to make mistakes, and failures can occur at any time, sometimes giving rise to critical situations, both for customers and for business.
Therefore, in any company in which IT infrastructure is important, it is necessary to monitor its correct operation so that a possible error does not ultimately affect the service provided to users.
In such cases, system monitoring comes to the rescue, which allows you to check the health of all applications and services from a single control panel. When end users experience difficulties, a company should have a tool that can quickly identify and fix the root cause of a slowdown or error. A good monitoring system is capable of monitoring devices, infrastructures, applications, services, and even business processes.
What is a system monitoring tool?
System monitoring software is a tool that monitors, logs, and analyzes system resources at all levels of the IT environment, from operating systems and firmware to system applications and user software.
It collects a variety of layer-specific metrics and events using agents, as well as API integrations with third-party tools and services. The software then combines and analyzes metrics and events to provide the customer with a holistic view of system health, performance and security.
Essentially, for a company, a good monitoring system helps improve efficiency. How is it shown?
Business benefits from using a monitoring system
APIBEST engineers can help set up a monitoring system for any business process, thanks to which the manager will receive ready-made reports and a formed action plan. For example, to track the performance of a team, a monitoring system can alert you to low-quality operations and poorly managed projects.
If you have a project that is taking much longer than it should, your team leader may step in to reassess the situation.
If your employees spend too much time on certain administrative tasks, such as internal emails to other colleagues, then perhaps an internal employee messaging system can improve this process.
Three key benefits of implementing a monitoring system:
Improve the use of your equipment
Monitor the health of your equipment and spend less on repairs and fixing bugs.
If, for example, a piece of equipment is not working properly, the monitoring system will detect this, notify about it, and a decision can be made to repair or replace it.
Improving the image of the company
Your software product is the face of your company. Don't let your customers spread negative feedback after a bad experience with your product.
Spend less time on routine processes
Your staff will be able to devote more time to other tasks, knowing that if there is a problem, they will receive the appropriate alerts and the necessary reports.
Early incident detection saves time and money!
Imagine that your business is dependent on a website that performs poorly or falls far behind. If you don't have a monitoring system in place, it will likely take you hours, maybe days, to realize the problem. Probably your own clients will tell you about it. This alignment of events immediately leads to a direct loss of income.
A good monitoring system can alert you to problems as soon as they occur, allowing you to fix the problem immediately and minimize the time your software product is down or running slowly.
