The Importance of 365 Monitoring
When your organization doesn't have the proper monitoring in place, IT Pros and users alike are left in the dark when it comes to the root cause of an outage as well as the best solution moving forward. Proper Office 365 Monitoring turns the light back on and allows IT Pros to mitigate the impact your employees experience during and outage ultimately promoting a boost in productivity within your organization.
Office 365 Monitoring with ENow
The right Office 365 monitoring provides your organization with the right tools to manage an outage efficiently and effectively. It allows IT Pros to avoid any major impact your organization may otherwise face.
ENow’s remote probes give IT Pros the full picture of services, as well as subsets of services that an outage is affecting. Without the proper solution, this information isn’t available to your organizations and makes identifying issues during an outage that much harder. IT Pros are also able to monitor the status of multiple services through end user experience monitoring probes that cover a range of Office 365 apps and cloud-based collaboration systems like OneDrive, Zoom and Saleforce.
That’s where ENow’s Office 365 Monitoring and Reporting Solution comes in. It’s designed in a way that assists not only IT Pros, but the users within your organization too. This solution identifies which services are affected during an outage and leaves a breadcrumb trail to identify the root cause of the outage. Enow’s solution helps IT Pros to monitor your organization's whole environment in one place.
Lastly, the ENow Dashboard consolidates all outage information into one location which eliminates the need to frantically refresh Twitter and check the Service Health Dashboard for answers.
