Office 365 Proactive Monitoring: Get Ahead of your Issues

Posted by Clementine Crozier on Thu, Mar 22, 2018

While there are a few performance monitoring options available on the market, the level of data granularity and availability of useful, impactful insights varies greatly. Most solutions don’t offer enough detailed metrics and analysis to pinpoint problems (as well as their root causes) quickly; oftentimes, the data isn’t even presented in an easy-to-use, efficient manner. In addition, few solutions are comprehensive enough to test the application environment at every level — including and especially the end-user perspective, which is a critical aspect of performance.

When IT departments realized the ability for cloud deployments to scale, the cloud became an attractive value proposition. This has allowed IT departments to refocus on value-added tasks, rather than spending days patching servers at data centers.

The increased complexity of today’s IT infrastructure has made old methods of application performance management insufficient. Previously, simple back-end metrics were enough to measure whether service was being provided to end-users quickly and securely. Today, more sophisticated analytics and measuring tools are required to stay ahead of performance issues to ensure end-user satisfaction.
