IT Monitoring Services for 24×7 Availability: A Success Story

The average cost of downtime for companies in niche markets (such as transportation) tends to be over $5 million per hour. Needless to say, this is a cost companies will do anything to avoid paying. And one way to minimize downtime is through effective IT monitoring services. 

solverASSIST recently had the privilege of providing technical services to a globally-operating client headquartered in Germany. For businesses like theirs, our monitoring services proved to be an invaluable asset, especially as the client required uninterrupted 24×7 availability for the sake of their team and customers. 

Challenges Without IT Monitoring Services

Before partnering with solverASSIST, our client faced significant hurdles due to the lack of a structured IT monitoring support system. Each team within the organization operated independently with its own setup, leading to a fragmented and inefficient approach. This disconnection made it difficult for the business to maintain a cohesive strategy across different departments.

Moreover, the lack of a unified monitoring setup prevented the client from having a clear overview of their entire IT system. This resulted in a significant shortfall in real-time insights, which are crucial for assessing the overall IT system’s health and performance. Without these insights, the client struggled to anticipate or quickly respond to issues. 

Unfortunately, their customers and internal team paid the price. 

When issues arose, the specific team responsible would only be notified during regular business hours. This approach had a profound impact on the client’s global operations. Customers worldwide experienced delays in receiving essential documents, as failures were only addressed in the subsequent working hours. The result was inefficiencies and potential revenue losses.

It was through solverASSIST’s involvement that our client could finally maintain a seamless and always-on digital presence, irrespective of the scale and complexity of their application ecosystem

The Benefits of IT Monitoring Services

Proactive Monitoring

solverASSIST’s experts provided our client with 24/7 IT monitoring services, constantly watching for early signs of potential disruptions. This allowed the client to identify and address all issues preemptively and prevent downtime. 

Reactive Monitoring

While proactive IT monitoring services focus on prevention, reactive monitoring was also essential as it enabled our client to ensure immediate response post-incident. Reactive monitoring comes into action after an issue has occurred, enabling rapid identification, analysis, and resolution. 

Despite being reactive, this approach helped our client refine application performance, resolve bottlenecks, and implement optimizations. 

Real-Time Visibility

Our IT monitoring services gave our client real-time visibility into the health and performance of various components within their digital ecosystem. Constant oversight ensures that any potential problems are spotted as they form, allowing for swift intervention.

Additionally, IT monitoring services enable near real-time surveillance of our client’s network security, which is crucial for the early detection of potential breaches. 

Regular Workload and Performance Assessments

We assisted our client with the regular measurement of the workload and performance of key infrastructure components, such as CPU, memory, and disk usage. This ongoing assessment yields real-time insights into their IT system behaviors.

Seamless Operations

When our client’s customers faced IT failures or required essential documentation, they would have to wait for the next business hours to receive assistance. solverASSIST stepped in to eliminate these delays. Now, the customers could receive what they needed regardless of time zone or business hours.

Types of IT Monitoring Service Reports

Our solverASSIST team provided this client with a comprehensive overview of their IT status. This report would include the following:

  • Overall System Health Metrics: Presenting key metrics that gauge the overall health and performance of the system, providing a holistic understanding of its functionality and efficiency.
  • Error Rates: Highlighting any anomalies or deviations in error rates, allowing for quick identification and resolution of potential issues before they impact the system’s performance.
