Increasingly complex IT infrastructure environments require best-practice platforms so that businesses can take advantage of the whole range of their IT architectures and their perspective. Thus, in their "Predicts 2015: IT Operations Management" article, Gartner said by 2018 20% of IT operations organizations would abandon legacy monitoring tools for new monitoring architectures, up from 2% today. In other words, by 2016 IT companies will replace their monitoring systems for next generation technologies.

For all businesses, skyrocketing technologies like cloud and mobile services entail a need to draw new infrastructure management software that reduces operational costs, enhancing ongoing operations and security and supporting a more agile IT environment. Modern market pressures require a bridge between the demanding needs of business with the reality of its IT infrastructure on all levels — network, storage, system and facility management. IT infrastructure management service providers sharpen their software and services to a new level — next generation solutions. What does this actually mean?

As we have put it previously, advancements in cloud, social, mobile and analytics have matured recently and are placing greater demands on your IT infrastructure. Modern IT infrastructure software – systems services, in particular – is developed to support these market switches and ensure a hybrid coexistence of cloud, mobile, and traditional systems. With cloud gaining further adoption, next generation monitoring includes more flexible options for end-to-end performance and capacity monitoring, offering a huge breadth of coverage spanning from traditional enterprise technologies such as java and .NET to cloud technologies such as Node.js, Ruby, and PHP offering proactive management and problem resolution with search analytics capabilities. Next generation IT infrastructure monitoring offers a hybrid delivery model with virtualization and automation of ongoing operations. It all goes without saying that IT companies that deliver infrastructure management services stay ahead with customization, which attracts customers due to its optimized costs.

Moving on, the tendency today is that networks are becoming increasingly complex with more locations, a BYOD-policy, lots of devices, and advanced technologies on them. This sometimes results in damaged business relationships, limited innovations, and increased costs. There has been research that 20% of a company's data center is trapped into complexity and inefficiency, and as a result of which projects fail or never happen at all. Obviously, businesses have better things to do with their time and resources than getting themselves out of this trap. Modern IT infrastructure management solutions leverage networks and provide single-source solutions to ensure smooth migration to a software-defined data center coupled with cutting-edge technology. Costly downtime of your network is excluded due to around-the-clock monitoring and management services for servers, storage devices and software. Next generation IT infrastructure monitoring solutions help support and control an effective network that can accommodate ever-increasing data traffic.

Then, information growth and 24/7 operational demands need a well-monitored storage infrastructure to meet their needs. Next generation IT infrastructure management solutions import cost-effective storage capabilities optimized for a particular business. Depending on network sizes, with storage as a service, operating costs are estimated to be typically reduced by 12—48%. Those savings can then be reinvested on high value strategic projects that optimize business growth.

There is no doubt that next generation monitoring solutions for IT infrastructure management gives businesses a competitive edge and serves as a catalyst for revenue growth. Drive the innovation for your company and you'll be rewarded.
