The Importance of 365 Monitoring

Reliance on cloud-based services is greater than ever. With so many users working at home due to the current situation with Coronavirus, Microsoft has experienced in increase in outages in recent weeks. Because of this, it’s important to have the proper monitoring in place that allows IT Pros to identify issues outages may cause for your organization and minimize the impact the outage has on your users’ productivity. Without monitoring, IT Pros are left scrolling through twitter and refreshing the Service-Health Dashboard looking for answers that may not come until much later when an outage does occur.
