When comes to IT, let’s face it, sh– happens. Today’s IT teams face the constant challenge of keeping up with the unprecedented pace of change. This is further complicated given that the traditional perimeters—and attack surface—of organizations have expanded. Keeping track of data and assets across multiple clouds and containers is a challenge, and hybrid workforce models mean employees are working remotely.
Another challenge facing IT is that the only thing growing faster than their workload is the weight of responsibility on their shoulders. However, it’s not all doom and gloom. While the demands placed on IT employees are more taxing than ever, their value to the organization has never been higher – a value that could be even higher if they could focus more on innovation and less on keeping the lights on, which is very important to achieve given that the only things that don’t seem to be growing are budgets and team sizes.
So what solution can help deal with data sprawl, shrinking budgets, and a general feeling of being overwhelmed and understaffed? The answer is event management, which can help you take back control and get out of constant reactive mode. After all, as today’s environment grows, monitoring solutions struggle to keep up. But today’s domain-agnostic solutions are able to collect the data that is generated in the IT environment and use advanced analytics and machine learning to quickly and accurately prevent problems before they occur or identify the root cause immediately.
And frankly, they do occur. While we all love our customers, that doesn’t mean we want to hear from them at 3am. First, when an outage occurs, customer trust is lost, and none of us like to be caught off guard. What is the solution here? Simple: service monitoring based on machine learning. Monitoring services can be difficult without the right tools, but with ML, historical data generated by your systems is combined with real-time data to predict when problems might occur, and it saves the day.
More than just talking
There will be no more data revolution; it’s already here, and it’s here to stay. It’s time to roll out the welcome mat and embrace it. Fortunately, Splunk has both event management and ML-based service monitoring and many other solutions to help you take control of your data.
