A new global study from LogicMonitor on the ways IT operations and developers are attempting to reduce downtime, blackouts and brownouts by increasing IT observability and performance is coming out next Tuesday. I can share more details if you agree to honor the embargo, which lifts on February 2 at 5am ET?
The report, The Race to IT Observability, comes as full-stack observability is seen as the “holy grail” for many IT departments. And that goal has become even more elusive as more companies continue to operate remotely in the wake of the pandemic. Many of the 600 IT leaders surveyed understand this too, with this stat in particular standing in today’s landscape: Many companies have invested in their technology this year, and the two highest increases in focus include data security (75%) and cloud technologies/services (69%).
That said, the comprehensive report, has many timely insights on blackouts, new IT spending, the convergence of DevOps and ITOps and how those outages affect workforces in today’s new landscape, including:
- The majority of respondents have had between one and five brownouts (55%) and one and five outages (70%) in the past 3 years.
- The vast majority of global enterprises (93%) have seen some level of convergence between traditional IT operations and administration teams and development teams in the past year.
- 94% credit the 2020 COVID-19 pandemic with accelerating this convergence
- CIO/CTOs feel that their role in the boardroom has gained importance over the past year and will continue in the years to come. This is especially true in North America.
To learn more, Christina Kosmowski, President at LogicMonitor, – the SaaS IT infrastructure monitoring, intelligence and observability co. – is available to talk, either under embargo or after the report is live. Let me know when you’re available and I’d be happy to set something up.
