Many organizations struggle staying ahead of their infrastructure and application issues for several reasons:
- Lack of visibility to predict resource utilization – because workloads change so frequently in the cloud, the need of capacity forecasting when more server resources are needed is critical.
- Lean methodologies and offshore accounts bring down on premise operations teams to lower costs thereby affecting human resources managing the infrastructure
- A lot of time goes into reacting to incidents and problems, which leaves less time to focus on strategy
- Performance monitoring is now across a wide variety of end-user tools such as mobile devices etc.
There is an increasing web of difficulty and availability of applications, managing performance and end user satisfaction. Organizations are looking for the right balance between reducing the IT budget and maintaining robust and efficient systems to support performance needs.
Can your organization relate to any of these issues?
- Overwhelmed by the volume of the infrastructural components to monitor?
- Is there a one-stop tool to oversee availability, performance and make appropriate decisions that benefit the company and the end user?
- Does log management take up time and resources more than performance tuning?
The answer to all of the above is the Oracle Management Cloud.
Oracle Management Cloud provides end-to-end visibility of your business-critical applications running on private, public, and hybrid cloud environments. It caters to multiple users such as DevOps engineers, Administrators, Business Analysts, etc, and helps eliminate overlapping problem areas thereby saving resources time to identify and troubleshoot problems quickly.
Oracle Management Cloud has been specifically designed for
- Application performance monitoring
- Find patterns leading to issues and fix them.
- Oversee application peak performance, generate trends and fine tune problem areas which results in a smooth end user experience.
- Log Analytics
- Monitor, archive, analyze logs from on premise or cloud systems.
- Search volumes of data to trouble shoot problems.
- IT Analytics
- Gain in depth insight into the performance and capacity of the applications.
- Enable business analysts and LOB users understand criticality of operations.
- Infrastructure Monitoring
- Monitor health status of various components in both on premise and cloud platforms.
Oracle Management Cloud runs on a Unified Big Data platform which offers real-time monitoring, alerting and analytics. Often, the importance of such tools is known to benefit Operations, so let’s take a different approach. The following are some examples of how application developers and LOB users can leverage Oracle Management Cloud in day-to-day activities and decision making.
Application developers have many tools today to build web services, enterprise applications and end users have very high expectations about the availability of these apps.
How Oracle Management Cloud perfectly fits in? Oracle Application Performance Monitoring Cloud Service gives all the information a developer needs to find and fix an issue. Developers can monitor browser performance, Ajax performance, time taken for server-side requests, use real-time log tracking etc., in development or test environments and troubleshoot issues, thereby eliminating the scenarios of discovering these in the production environment, which leads a much better end user experience.
Quick Visibility for Business
LOB users are constantly under pressure to run IT like a business and ensure performance of both applications and infrastructure. They need effective ways to monitor ever-scaling environments and make good decisions to optimize existing capacity of the infrastructure. Oracle IT Analytics Cloud service provides a complete, granular insight into the infrastructure usage, performance and the need to scale up or down depending on the usage. Users can build dashboards, publish the results periodically, and analyze the data based on various criteria depending on the business and make decisions accordingly.
Oracle Management Cloud is secure, fully managed by Oracle, deploys the data on enterprise infrastructure, and runs on tablet and desktop devices.
These are just some of the key users and scenarios Oracle Management Cloud is designed for.
