If there is one thing you can guarantee you will hear from the leadership of your company it’s these seven words:
“Do more with what you already have”.
And it is sound advice.
Before you spend anything on new stuff, different stuff or in-fact anything, you need to make sure that you are doing everything you can with the stuff you already have.
But sometimes it isn’t obvious what more you can do with the things you already have, because of the way they are considered within your organization.
Every large enterprise uses complex business applications to engage in the business they are in. These applications will span the whole business, providing everything from inventory management, ERP, payment processing, information collections, storage and dissemination, regulatory compliance, sales reporting, logistics, customer service and manufacturing. And all of these separate systems are brought together by middleware products that manage the flow of communication and ensure that every message is correctly managed, and that business can be enacted.
A side effect of having everything connected by middleware, is that there is now a new source of information about, well everything. If every message can be monitored, you now have a simple way to understand your whole business. Combine middleware monitoring with the monitoring of technology parameters such as networking traffic, ram and processor usage, and you have everything you need to understand your business in multiple perspectives, imagine being able to describe everything from how your technology is performing all the way through to how your users are being serviced, from their perspective, and all points in between.
This is exactly what Nastel offers; by monitoring everything in detail, including every message and queue within the middleware systems, Nastel can provide an unprecedented understanding to your operations and application teams.
