Many a times, IT departments are busy putting out fires and tending to issues after they have already done enough damage. This uses up valuable resources and time. In today’s world, proactive predictive analysis has become an essence to avoid blind spots and keep your business running with minimum or null downtime. Predictive analysis requires a more holistic view of the environment. Currently businesses depend on operational matrix to analyze their uptime, performance, number of open issues and time between failures. However, relying completely on operational metrics isn’t enough. In order to keeps your business running smoothly, you need to be able to detect and address critical issues before they impact the business.
