That’s $7,793 per minute of downtime!

Staying Ahead

In the typical organization, enterprise systems are supported by an internal IT workforce as well as external vendors. Support staff are located around the world and work various shifts to provide 24/7 support. In addition, a central operations team is typically responsible for monitoring systems, responding to outages and then notifying the proper teams. Not only is this inefficient and costly, but it can be very difficult to manage.

  • Pro-actively monitor systems to prevent outages
  • Automate incident detection to reduce response time
  • Centralize on-call incident management to minimize downtime
