4 advantages of IT monitoring as a cloud service

 

How, by making less effort, can I prevent IT flare-ups starting in the first place instead of spending my time putting out fires? How can I take a clear look at my IT environment and guarantee its continuity? These are the burning questions of every IT manager. Proactive monitoring and management is the answer. But unless you have the right expertise and tools, it can cost you a great deal of time and money.

Monitoring-as-a-Service acts on the need to have a proactive approach to IT that is both flexible and cost-effective. This cloud service maps your network, monitors every component and keeps it up to date – automatically. MaaS makes sure that problems are solved before they even occur. As a result, IT managers are able to keep everything under tight control, without the need to install and maintain expensive software. These are the four main benefits of Monitoring-as-a-Service:

  • Transparent costs. With Monitoring-as-a-Service, you’re not buying monitoring software as such, but are taking out a ‘subscription’ to a range of services. Depending on the size of your network (i.e. the number of devices you have to manage), you buy the service(s) you need at a fixed price per month.
  • Fast implementation.Because it’s an ‘in the cloud’ service, the software can be up and running very quickly. Better still, you don’t have to invest a cent in hardware, software, maintenance or specialised knowledge.
  • Business continuity. Through proactive monitoring and management, you can be sure that any possible IT issues are dealt with before they become genuine problems. This peace of mind is worth its weight in gold. Professional providers of Monitoring-as-a-Service offer the optional ability to escalate specific IT issues to their own specialists. Or to keep an eye on your IT management when people are away.
  • Strategic focus. Monitoring-as-a-Service automates repetitive tasks so that your in-house IT department can focus on the strategic aspects of IT.

In a world where IT is becoming increasingly easy to access in a cloud model, companies have no excuse any more not to manage their IT professionally. Monitoring-as-a-Service offers a solution for businesses that want to maintain control of their IT themselves, but are not willing to make sky-high investments.
