From legacy solutions to the newest and most hyped, many IT monitoring solutions present one or more of these integration fault lines.

Here are the 7 signs of disconnected monitoring:

  1. Inability or constraints in monitoring newer technologies (ex.: cloud, edge, SD-WAN)
  2. An assortment of asset-dedicated tools is needed to cover the full IT environment (causing the infamous tool sprawl)
  3. Costly and cumbersome integration with other ITOps tools
  4. Low or no capability to support IT automation
  5. Time and resource intensive implementation processes
  6. Slow adaptation to tech or environment evolution
  7. No clear roadmap or leadership in evolving the monitoring platform
