“62% of network downtime is due to human error….80% of IT budgets is used for maintenance and operations.”.  Yankee Group survey

How important are your IT resources ? Do you have any pro-active plans or tools in place to monitor their performance and availability? Have you captured any metrics for performance and SLA reporting or capacity planning ?

Have you ever thought what would happen, if one of your servers started having performance issues, or God forbid a serious hardware problem shuts down the server ?

The IT components of most services will typically revolve around hardware and software resources, such as servers, desktops, applications, databases, middleware and messaging systems. Monitoring is a key component of Service Availability Management.

We define Service Availability Management as the practice of ensuring levels of IT Service availability for use in Service Level Agreements (SLA).

Why should You implement Availability Management?

Benefits to implementing Availability Management processes include:

  • Services are available for use during expected timeframes as specified in Service Level Agreements.
  • Services are provisioned on specific infrastructure depending upon their availability needs. This avoids unnecessary costs due to provisioning services with longer recovery times on more expensive high-availability platforms.
  • Potential service availability issues are identified and corrected before they negatively impact services.
