Services for alert integration and integration of legacy scripts and other sources of performance instrumentation, as needed. Services for mentoring of appropriate techniques, as needed. Services for definition of performance views for operations usage and training. Definition of triage activities to establish and refine triage techniques. Assigning personnel to participate in mentoring activities and minimize the need for additional services. As discussed in the introduction, this level of capability is what the business expected with the initial deployment.

I have limited the scope to the responsibilities of a conventional monitoring organization, which is to get the technology up and available to application teams. I have set aside a lot of other points that I would like to see in a comprehensive monitoring initiative but what results is a typical set of objectives. I have not included any KPIs as they may be inconvenient to determine. You can increase the overall scope of the justification by adding some of the other justifications but you cannot really trim this business justification any further without ensuring that it would be denied.

AM is fine for those legacy pieces, and that contribution to the overall picture of application health is valuable. The real opportunities for trouble come from the new components. These new components are not fully mature and often contribute to the majority of root-cause identifications. These new components are the ones that you need visibility into in order to understand the relationships they form because they are simply not part of your current teams’ expertise. Before performance monitoring, your monitoring team had responsibility for monitoring platforms.
