Changes in applications or IT infrastructure can lead to application downtime. This not only hits your revenue, it also has a negative impact on your reputation.
Everybody in IT understands the importance of having the right monitoring solutions in place. From an infrastructure – to a business perspective, we rely on monitoring tools to get us the right information.
But I wonder, why don’t these tools monitor application updates and infrastructure changes? Especially in today’s world, where DevOps and agile working are pushing changes to the apps and infrastructure all the time? Manual configuration errors can cost companies up to $72,000 per hour in Web application downtime. While application maintenance costs are increasing at a rate of 20% annually, 35% of those polled said at least one-quarter of their downtime was caused by configuration errors.
