Keeping things simple has been our strategy all along. It’s pretty much the motto of FireScope, reduce costs by maximizing efficiency. For years we’ve been spreading this message, and new research proves that we’re on to something.
This research, Benefits of an Optimal Number of Performance Management Tools, is an interesting report by NetForecast that’s definitely worth a look. The report digs into the number and types of IT tools recommended to reach peak performance, the business benefits of consolidation, and even key features to look for when picking vendors.
For the study, NetForecast surveyed more than 400 enterprises about their performance management practices, and found that too many IT solutions lead to overlap, inefficiency and truckloads of complexity. These findings are in sync with what FireScope clients have achieved by consolidating their disparate systems into FireScope. If a company is using eight different vendors and unable to stay on top of them all, FireScope BSM can draw them all in and essentially turn those eight vendors into one. No blind spots, overlap, confusion, none of that bad stuff. To make a long story short, when it comes to IT monitoring and management tools, less is more.
In the current economy, one of the easiest ways for businesses to slash costs is by taking a closer look how they’re managing IT. The NetForecast study is a clear guide to reducing costs while improving efficiency. So check it out, and then download a trial of FireScope BSM to see even more clearly.
