With the digital transformation, the companies use technology to improve their performance, their engagement, and the engagement of the clients guaranteeing better results. Before such scenario, the information technology take over an increasingly more essential role. Therefore, to guarantee its correct functioning will be indispensable for the functioning of companies. For that, an efficient management of the technological resources is crucial.
One term which gained considerable emphasis in this and other aspects is the management based in data. It consists in the necessity of a decision-making process based in concrete data. In this form, with the acquisition of precise and updated information about the object of decision. Thus being possible to create more efficient strategies before such a competitive market. During this article we will approach this concept applied to the management of the IT infrastructure.
MORE ASSERTIVE DECISIONS
The procrastination in the decision-making can be so harmful about wrong decisions. With the management based in data, the decisions shouldn’t be taken anymore based in assumptions or trial and error. With the historical data available, the manager will be able to take more efficient decisions, besides having predictability of how your resources will be utilized.
With the SLAview, the manager will be able to configure which KPIs want to accompany and how those will be shown graphically. From this, the manager will have access to a range of reports, dashboards and alarms. In this manner, being capable of accompany all the aspects relative to the performance of their network assets.
With the TRAFip, the manager will have complete viability of the traffic of your network. With this, he/she will be able to follow up the traffic in relation to several objects of analysis, such as traffic by network interfaces, by subnetworks, applications, ASNs and among others. Besides this, it can provide the visualization and the crossing of information between objects such as, for example, the exchange of traffic between subnetworks or the traffic of each application inside a subnetwork.
REDUCTION OF COSTS
Recently we have published an article about the reduction of costs that an ISP experimented after the implantation of the TRAFip. https://www.telcomanager.com/blog/como-o-trafip-ajudou-um-isp-a-reduzir-gastos-e-melhorar-a-experiencia-de-seus-clientes/, this demonstrates how great opportunities can be localized with the correct visibility of the network.
Another relevant aspect in the reduction of costs is the diminishing of time for the resolution of problems. The bigger the infrastructure, the more complex is your administration, without visibility, to find the root cause of a problem, can be a challenge. One system of alarms that points exactly the path of the problem will certainly be a great ally. This means less waste of human capital and faster recovery of the network in the face of problems that can generate instability or even unavailability.
Imagine the gain in anticipating the problem. The constant monitoring of the main aspects associated directly and indirectly to your network allowing that failures are detected before it damages the business. With this, analysis such as behavioral alteration, reports of projection and levels of alarms become indispensable.
This is another advantage of the management based in data. Besides the constant accompanying of the indicators, with data available, the manager in conjunction with the systems of monitoring can perform predictive analysis. Therefore, based in the current behavior of the indicators it will be possible to perform based estimates for future values. In this form, being not only a good practice, but also a management style, being this a primordial factor for decisions relative to investments in the infrastructure and in the prevention of failures.
In this sense, there are no doubts about the importance of investing in network management. In this sense, it is perceptible that these good practices bring not only benefits for the visibility of the infrastructure, but also a way of guaranteeing crucial information for the governance of the network.
