Liberating Time; How Cloud-Based Monitoring is Transforming Productivity

Wasted Time:
Every IT Manager’s Secret Problem

There is a problem out there in IT-Land that is seldom spoken of-wasted time. Until recently there have been no real solutions to liberate IT managers from being stuck at work monitoring these processes. All available solutions have been software-based and therefore inherently restrictive.

Found Time:
All-in-One Integrated Monitoring from the Cloud
In 2005 a handful of IT managers at Lycos/Europe had had enough of late nights stuck in some poorly lit back room waiting for monitoring processes to finish. They wanted a life and they sensed other IT managers did too.
They soon realized that at the heart of this problem of wasted time was an outdated means of monitoring systems and networks. The existing tools all software-based inherently required someone to be physically present on-site. Sensing the potential of what was then the emerging Cloud this small band of crusaders launched out on a new mission: to save IT managers all over the globe massive amounts of time. And so Monitis was born.
From day one Monitis transformed the market by being the first monitoring company to fully integrate systems network and website monitoring into an all-in-one comprehensive suite of tools that is available entirely from the Cloud. Monitis has a depth of enterprise functionality that meets or exceeds any of its software-based competition. But unlike the competition because Monitis is 100% Cloud-based IT managers are now free to monitor anything from anywhere and are no longer stuck in the office.
