In many cases, expert teams use specialized management solutions in a complex IT infrastructure to monitor the systems within their area. Successful companies have a consolidated view of their complete IT infrastructure. This is the central requirement for a state-of-the-art umbrella system. It must be possible to easily integrate existing management systems and solutions and to display their information in a compact service view to support IT service management.
Advantages of an umbrella system
The main advantage of an umbrella management is the central overview over the current status of the complete IT infrastructure.
Additionally, an umbrella system supports in:
- efficient usage and control of existing resources
- creating reliable trend analyses and forecasts
- minimizing mean time to repair (MTTR)
- monitoring service level agreements (SLA) as central database
- structured error analysis (root cause analysis)
The ZIS System as umbrella system
Centralized event management and business service monitoring based on the ZIS System family gives companies a 360 degrees visibility on their IT landscape and allows a fast response on problems. The ZIS Systems is the central enterprise console with its open structures and large number of interfaces. It collects a wide variety of data, e.g. critical statuses and operational information from server monitoring (ZISAgent), information from upstream management tools, from mainframe monitoring or other third-party systems such as building technology or fire panels.
This renders the ZIS System by LeuTek a universal umbrella system that combines information from infrastructure with that of classic IT. The ZIS System is where everything converges.
