“More organizations are moving all or part of their infrastructure to AWS. And as these IT environments become more complex, it’s a best practice for IT Ops teams to centralize the monitoring of on-premise, cloud and hybrid IT infrastructures in the same application,” says Steve Francis, Founder and Chief Product Officer, LogicMonitor. “IT Ops teams want to spend less time configuring and managing their monitoring solutions, whether it be a legacy tool or an AWS-only solution, so they can spend more time enhancing performance for their end users. The move to the public cloud creates an opportunity for IT Ops teams to consolidate toolsets and automate infrastructure management — which includes monitoring.”
