Enterprise IT estates are growing fast, and in every direction. The shift to cloud makes resources easier than ever to procure -- increasing host-counts (and costs). Physical data centers, too, keep expanding. So does complexity, making for more and more things to monitor.
These days, more and more enterprises operate across multiple physical and cloud locations. IT Growth isn’t always smooth and predictable: organizations that grow through M&A can multiply in scale quickly, compelling rapid integration and consolidation to meet ROI projections.
Growing IT complexity and accelerating change defines another kind of scale. Monitoring that requires lots of work to make new tech observable, can’t keep up. Neither can monitoring that’s hard to configure automatically, or that can’t help with discovery to get things monitored quickly.
