How important is network monitoring

Is network monitoring one of the IT priorities of your company?

Is network monitoring one of the IT priorities of your company?
IT professionals know that even state-of-the-art equipment and the most up to date software do not guarantee fault-free systems. Therefore, any business-critical system must be monitored constantly to prevent outages that affect its use.

Today we will see how the networks, that ensure the exchange of information among the computers of your company, also require close monitoring of the IT staff so that they can have a good performance. Discover the importance of network monitoring!


Always aware

When a company monitors its network, the staff responsible for the IT processes will be informed about possible failures by means of pre-scheduled email alerts. By doing this, the team is always aware of the performance from anywhere, and may act more responsively, in case a problem occurs.

Imagine that the company network presents some failure at the end of the night. If the infrastructure is monitored, a professional will be able to solve the problem immediately, remotely, even before employees start working the next day.


Speeding up corrections

Network monitoring also makes the correction of the problems a lot faster. This happens because the solutions to this end already show which device may be causing the failure, reducing the time it takes to identify and address them.

Identifying trends

The network of an enterprise may present several isolated problems over the years and, if they are not carefully analyzed, some important trends may go unnoticed by the staff.

With a monitoring tool, professionals are able to identify patterns in the failures and, consequently, understand the health of the network to define improvement actions.


Planning up ahead

If any equipment begins to present constant problems, causing harm to the tasks, this means that your company has already missed the proper time to replace it.

However, when the IT staff monitors the network, it will be possible to schedule periodic maintenance or investments in new equipment to prevent problems on hubs, routers, modems or other points of infrastructure. This prevents the network from operating at the limit of its capacity for a long time, allowing the company to plan investments with more tranquility and without major impact on the budget.


Making visualization easier

When the IT staff needs to explain any technical issues to the senior management of the company, chances are of occurring noises in the communication. Therefore, monitoring the network with tools geared towards this end may facilitate the visualization of the system performance and its critical points, which favors decision-making not only by the IT staff but also by the business owners.

With all this, it is possible to realize that network monitoring helps making the IT staff job a lot more strategic, creating solutions to the technological challenges even before they occur.
