Organizations are feeling the pressure of economic uncertainty. They strive to closely align IT infrastructure to the business and also face challenges to reduce costs. While virtually every IT organization has multiple management solutions in place, the unfortunate truth is that most companies are struggling to develop a product mix that provides them with the "right" information. Many companies are unsure about where to start in terms of formulating an acquisition strategy. They face multiple decisions, including which tools to retain and which to retire, the benefits of consolidating vendors versus "best of breed," and turf wars in which each "silo" has a favorite tool that doesn't integrate. While most customers realize the importance of having a well defined monitoring and management solution, they are not sure about how to implement it. Monitoring and managing the end user performance and tying to the performance of the underlying IT infrastructure and applications is fast becoming a top priority for many of the organizations.
