If you cannot see something, it is impossible to monitor it, assess it and improve it. In a business environment, this lets problems fester unnoticed until they eventually wreak havoc with your productivity. However, the growth of digital technology has meant that achieving visibility is far from straightforward. With hybrid IT and multi-cloud, achieving a holistic overview of your business operations is harder than ever, with business processes extending across different personnel, hardware and software.

Monitoring your hybrid cloud infrastructure
As business technology became more diverse, infrastructure monitoring solutions were developed to give organisations visibility into their IT performance. However, these were largely silo-specific and application unaware, making them increasingly inadequate for hybrid cloud infrastructures, where resources may not be owned by the company and may sit outside corporate firewalls.
One of the ways that businesses are overcoming these challenges is through the use of cross-silo data and analytics. At Xangati, our infrastructure monitoring solutions are designed to give businesses complete control over their IT resources, regardless of their complexity. There are a variety of different solutions within our portfolio, offering enhanced visibility into end-user metrics and enabling your organisation to move away from traditional performance monitoring tools.
For example, our Xangati Service Assurance Analytics framework delivers a rapid and scalable way to locate and resolve, or prevent, end-to-end performance issues in your hybrid cloud infrastructure, and guarantee performance, capacity and efficiency. We are able to map infrastructure behaviour to autonomic controls across traditional silos in real time and analyse impacts to app performance, efficiency and delivery to optimise virtualised workloads across any compute platform from private to hybrid cloud.
More than just control
Being able to monitor your hybrid cloud infrastructure offers more benefits than simply gaining greater control over your IT. Monitoring, which may involve live recordings and end-to-end visibility, can quickly evolve into analysis, via machine learning, metric-based alerting and predictive analytics. With this information to hand, businesses can quickly set about optimising their hybrid IT infrastructure. System faults can be identified, security problems can be pinpointed and performance metrics evaluated. Crucially, by gaining cross-silo visibility into the entirety of your business processes you can examine the cause of performance degradation and eliminate it.
Of course, the optimisation of your IT infrastructure plays a vital role in understanding how infrastructure monitoring delivers ROI, through cost reduction and revenue generation. With regards to the former, cross-silo monitoring can greatly reduce resource wastage and hence, improve cost efficiency. A predictive monitoring system can also lead to increased uptime and performance, which in turn delivers a better experience for the end-user and therefore boosts revenue generation.
