5 Likely Limitations of Your Monitoring and Logging Tool for Systems Integrations and how to Overcome them

Last Updated: November 15, 2023|

In this article, we will explore 5 likely limitations of your monitoring and logging tool for systems integrations and how to overcome them. System integrations monitoring and logging tools ensure smooth and efficient functioning of IT integrations. However, not all solutions are created equal. Many traditional tools may fall short in critical aspects, leaving businesses vulnerable to potential risks and inefficiencies.

1. Monitoring of Non-Events

Traditional monitoring tools often focus solely on capturing events or incidents within the system. However, the absence of expected activities or messages can be equally crucial in identifying issues and improving system efficiency.

Non-events, due failed processes, delays, lack of storage space, missing certifications, or expired licenses, might go unnoticed, resulting in significant challenges for IT teams. This leads to the next point.

2. Limited Data Democratization

In today’s data-driven landscape, easy data accessibility and collaboration are essential for effective decision-making. Unfortunately, many legacy monitoring and logging tools only restrict access to technical experts, leading to data silos and hindering collaboration between IT and business teams.

Often IT departments are tasked with supervising monitoring and logging of system integrations. IT departments also have a multitude of other responsibilities. Because of this, limited data democratization adds to the backlog of the IT departments to-do tasks and consequently troubleshooting takes longer to solve. This is a common issue in the monitoring and logging of system integrations field. But, perhaps an even bigger issue is number 3 on the list.

3. Incomplete End-to-End Process Tracking

Tracing the flow of data through complex integrations is essential for issue resolution and optimizing system performance. Yet some tools lack end-to-end process tracking capabilities, leaving IT teams struggling to identify the root cause of problems in interconnected systems. The optimal course of action, of course, when message flows fail, is to fix the root cause.

Having end-to-end capabilities is important to find where the root cause is. Related to this is the importance of having access to historical data.

4. Short Data Retention Periods

Insights from historical data are invaluable for trend analysis, compliance audits, and identifying long-term performance issues. Yet, some monitoring tools have limitations on data retention, leading to the loss of critical information over time.

5. Lack of Intelligent Alerting and Thresholds
