At the base level, a resilient system should be able to demonstrate that your services are up. If services are down, you need to know exactly what the issue is to identify the fastest possible path to resolution.
Real-time monitoring empowers you to keep your business critical services running and prevent costly outages.
In an increasingly digital landscape, technology failure poses a risk both to the enterprise suffering the outage and the economy at a larger scale.

Testing mercilessly and managing change across your IT infrastructure are key activities to any enterprise.
Planning and testing for large scale disruption is an essential component of operational resilience. For example, exchanges must be prepared for large scale trading in very focused periods of time, using capacity planning to prepare for scenarios where they should burst into the cloud to prevent outages.
The most demanding environments require an always-on approach.
In recent years, businesses have been under stress and were forced to adjust to changing workforce requirements, capital availability, market behaviour and usage patterns.
