LogicMonitor released a framework that IT teams and CIOs can leverage to evaluate their readiness determining their ability to deliver the necessary resiliency and continuity required for today’s digital businesses.

LogicMonitor’s strategic focus on IT readiness addresses a critical need for IT organizations and CIOs to be better prepared to address today’s new digital realities. The pandemic sparked a flood of digital transformation imperatives that introduced incredible complexity to technology infrastructures. Now nearly every company is a digital business – and being a digital business means IT systems must not simply run, they now are the lifeblood of all companies.

“Today, nearly every company is a tech company, and the unprecedented shift to digital accelerated by the pandemic has put new focus on the requirement for IT to demonstrate resiliency, continuity and preparedness, more so than ever before,” said Christina Kosmowski, CEO, LogicMonitor. “In today’s digital reality, boards and CEOs view readiness as a new board imperative and believe the IT experience connotes the customer experience. This is ultimately a question of board confidence, and we believe LogicMonitor can be a trusted advisor to IT teams and CIOs as they explore their own capabilities and build plans of action that will help them meet the readiness imperative.”

LogicMonitor said readiness was no longer just a CIO concern, the C-suite and increasingly the board must understand their organization’s level of preparedness and the implications for their business. To get there, executives and organizations need to be equipped with some fundamental questions to ask themselves, and each other, to challenge assumptions, drive toward sustainable IT resiliency, and form a living picture of the company’s technology stack and IT organization from a holistic perspective across seven criteria:

- Visibility – Understanding what is going on in the IT landscape

- Recovery – The ability to continue operations despite disruptions

- Trust – Confidence in technology systems and personnel

- Experience – Delivery of a positive and effective user experience

- Consistency – Ability of the technology stack to reliably perform to expectations

- Innovation – Ability of IT teams to bring innovations to the larger business

- Human Factor – Understanding the motivation and empowerment of the people behind technology.

LogicMonitor’s Assessment of IT Readiness includes a robust set of 40 KPIs that enable IT organizations to undertake self-examination of IT operations against the seven criteria. The KPIs address a range of topics including, as examples, latency, response time, percentage of core applications with failover capabilities, average recovery time on critical apps, and existence of disaster recovery planning. The Assessment provides a framework to explore these areas, outline gaps and undertake a journey to drive new levels of readiness, while outlining critical information that will enable reporting progress toward resiliency objectives.

LogicMonitor’s Assessment of IT Readiness should drive open discussions within teams, leaders and with clients to evaluate preparedness and build plans for optimization and improvement. It also provides a simplified source of information for CIOs to hold conversations with less tech-savvy leaders and other stakeholders. LogicMonitor’s focus on readiness flows from its core business, in helping customers gain critical unified observability across IT operations and technology that transcend on premise to hybrid cloud systems.
