Monitoring

A few months ago, we introduced you to the ‘Four Lenses of IT operations’. In this post, NetIQ defines four questions and the associated key capabilities that IT Operations needs in order to quickly and confidently answer these questions on a regular basis.

Is there anything more annoying than using a Unified Communications (UC) or VoIP telephony service—and suddenly everyone sounds like malfunctioning androids trapped in some sort of infinite echo chamber? Hello? (Hello.) Can anyone hear me? Allusions to Pink Floyd aside—even today, UC/VoIP quality is still an issue, despite all the IT monitoring we do. But…

I know what you’re thinking and no,  I’m not drunk.  What does monitoring have to do with better applications? Well,  for me,  a lot.  Think for a moment about who is involved with creating applications.  You’ve got developers (obviously), testers,  architects, project managers and probably a few other roles.  Now think about who supports the…

Get ready for the Internet of (Every)thing!  As IT professionals, if we aren’t preparing for it now—we’re falling behind. But what exactly will the Internet of Things (IoT) mean for our IT environments going forward? How are we going to deliver on all this hype and buzz? The devil is always in the details, right?…

I have had the luxury of working with so many (customers) companies over the years and seeing how their IT department is run.  With that I have learned so many things, both good and bad.  In some cases I have learned things that has changed some of my perceptions of how things should be done…

If you have ever watched TV,  you’ve probably seen a detective show or two.  The plot usually involves some kind of crime and then a team of citizens, detectives, coroners or whomever the show is about working for the next 40 minutes to figure out the who, what, when, where and why’s of the crime…

There’s little doubt we live in a noisier IT world. The simple reason: we have created nosier IT environments. Yes–nosier. As IT professionals, we now have more insight into and more oversight over our infrastructure, systems and applications than we’ve ever had before.

I’m a huge sci-fi geek. I love stories about interstellar travel, artificial intelligences and alien worlds. I have a soft spot for all things Star Trek too. I’d love to be zipping through space at superluminal speeds—boldly going where no one has gone before. Well, except for those pesky inertial dampeners and warp drives. Seriously—in…
