Partner Activities 2: Contica-Nodinite Round Table in November

Why an Agent is Preferable to a Spouse when Monitoring System Integrations
A large multinational corporation with headquarters in the UK had a delicate choice to make. The CIO understood that they had to implement a new software tool to monitor, log, and document their system integrations. The British firm had recently merged with a US rival. Well, swallowed their former competitor lock, stock, and barrel is a more accurate description.
The new entity was now a formidable player in the market as a result. However, with the merger and acquisition they also inherited their former competitor’s IT systems. This included legacy systems, different integration platforms and cloud solutions. The CIO knew that the next 12 months would be tricky getting the merged organizations integration landscapes to work together.
After an exhaustive evaluation process two final candidates for monitoring and logging system integrations were left standing. Both with vastly different approaches yet they offered similar end results.
One can best be described as proposing a marriage as a solution. Their tool could only function properly if it was hardcoded into the UK company’s existing IT landscape. Depending on a person’s perspective of matrimony it could either be a marriage of convenience or dreadful inconvenience.
The disingenuous sales argument was that their solution somehow reduces overhead costs. Yet as most CIOs are aware, when a product is coded into a system, it also needs to be maintained whenever updates occur. Hardcoding the monitoring and logging tool into an eco-IT-landscape is also a common vendor lock-in tactic.
Due diligence is always recommended when new solutions are incorporated as complicated divorces can easily become time-consuming, costly, and messy.
Benefits of Using Agents
The other candidate for the position was Nodinite, a little-known IT company from Sweden. Closer inspection revealed that they already have a smörgåsbord of high-profile Nordic customers.
Nodinite has a vastly different approach to monitoring and logging. Instead of welding itself so closely to the customers IT landscape, Nodinite uses agents. Once configured and deployed, its agents supervise and collect data concerning monitoring and logging of systems integrations from a safe distance.
There is no need to hardcode the tool, thus it is also easier to move on to a competing product in the future, should the need to switch ever arise. Nodinite watches and observes the integration landscape business flows end-to-end without interfering. Like the mythical 007 of his Majesty’s British Service, their agents operate with complete efficiency and focus (and much more discreetly).
For the CIO, the decision was a no-brainer. She had the foresight to understand that a monitoring and logging tool for system integrations is more effective using agents than an uncomfortable coding merger. Nodinite was the clear winner! On another note, the CIO had herself recently come out of a messy and expensive divorce and was in no mood to go through a similar experience at work by adding yet another system that needed to be maintained.
