How to Take Advantage of Market Growth in Cloud Infrastructure Monitoring

Cloud infrastructure monitoring allows enterprises to gain insights from the constant flow of IT data. Specialists can use AI-powered systems to collect information from cloud-based operations. They can use this data to assess processes and performance, find ways to make improvements, and look for potential issues related to security or workflow. 

Why is cloud infrastructure monitoring so important in today's workplaces? Cloud-based IT systems are quickly replacing traditional setups. Currently, only 32% of companies rely on server-based infrastructure. This number is shrinking every day. By 2025, 85% of companies will have a cloud-first approach to IT. 

This relatively rapid change presents challenges and opportunities for IT service providers. While some may be trying to catch up with the cloud revolution, others are poising their companies to take advantage of the growth in the cloud infrastructure monitoring market. 

Here is a look at the best ways to take advantage of the need for these services. 

Use a single platform for reporting

Data is the currency of cloud monitoring. Most companies will have information flowing from many different sources, including SaaS systems, databases, and network connections. If you look at each source independently, you might glean some insights. However, you have to sift through the data and organize it if you want a comprehensive measure of overall cloud system performance and utilization. 

By consolidating all the data into one place and organizing and visualizing it, service providers can give enterprises the insights they need to make decisions about strategies, process changes, or goals. 

For example, with the right setup, you can get workflow data from all applications on the network and offer a report on all bottlenecks within the entire cloud network. 

Focus on security

Data breaches can cause significant damage and bring seven-figure price tags to large companies. Cloud-based systems can help with cybersecurity, but they also expose an enterprise to new problems, such as employees connecting from unsecured personal devices. 

Even if a company's decision-makers aren't aware of the more technical benefits of cloud monitoring, they will be sold on improving security. Even if a hacker manages to get through the cybersecurity defenses, the monitoring system will immediately notice unusual traffic or activities or send an alert when someone attempts to access or remove data from the system. 

Highlight return on investment

Cloud infrastructure monitoring can be a long-term investment. In addition to collecting data about performance and security, companies can get information about the cost of their activities. 

Why is this important? Firstly, many SaaS subscriptions are based on usage. Cloud monitoring data offers information about usage, making it possible to potentially limit access and costs. 

Of course, cloud infrastructure audits can also reveal inefficiencies in a company's operations. Correcting these issues and streamlining operations can improve productivity, cut down on loss or operations-related spending, and eliminate redundancies. These steps can all have a positive impact on an enterprise's bottom line, with the savings potentially outweighing the costs of hiring a third-party IT service. 

As with security, this is a major selling point that every potential client will understand.
