Increasing Performance With Monitoring Solutions

Consolidation Is Still Far Off  Software consolidation is often the first step in monitoring. The trouble is that 32% of IT decision-makers in North America have only just begun to consolidate the tools necessary to improve monitoring.

In the corporate environment, ensuring that employees remain productive while still keeping everything secure is no easy task. For years now, CIOs have been imploring their business colleagues to add more resources to IT budgets, understanding that without them, monitoring the safety of the company will suffer. And when safety suffers, so will the company.

In a recent survey of 150 IT decision-makers around the world, CA Technologies discovered that while companies are increasingly trying to adopt innovative business models and services, their biggest difficulty is monitoring such solutions to ensure that policies are being followed and security is kept as tight as possible.

"Senior executives across all functions are expecting IT to contribute to game-changing innovation and business transformation that can get products and services to market faster, spur revenue growth and support the agile creation of entirely new business models," says Mike Sargent, general manager, Service Assurance, CA Technologies. "This study confirms our belief that converged infrastructure management better positions enterprises and service providers to manage the stresses and strains brought on by accelerated adoption of mobile technologies, rich-media content and higher expectations from customers."
