Consolidated Reporting Helps You Act, Not React
Consolidated reporting works differently, organizing a company’s independent data elements into a unified, visual analysis across the multi-vendor storage environment. Reports are refreshed regularly and are available at any time for efficient and digestible analysis.
Organizations often mistakenly approach storage data from a reactive stance. While reactive analysis can help IT leaders understand what happened in a specific situation, it is proactive analysis that will allow businesses to make changes that improve IT cost savings and infrastructure scalability.
Real-time monitoring fosters a business-as-usual mentality. IT teams get an alert and then react to it, causing them to only act when they observe changes that impact the storage environment. These monitoring tools are built to only look at the last 24 or 48 hours, maybe even a week, but this ties your IT team to the present, never allowing them to plan for the future. Consolidated reporting allows IT teams to use the storage data analysis to be prepared, to anticipate changes, and to plan ahead.
With Visual Storage Intelligence, for example, IT leaders receive a regular AI-driven email from an on-staff VSI expert, alerting them to any problems as well as highlighting any opportunities. Within this email, IT leaders will receive notice if performance thresholds are being met before capacity thresholds. All of this is in addition to the reporting dashboard, which clients can access 24/7.
Consolidated reporting may be particularly important for geographically dispersed teams, keeping them all on the same page.
Today’s storage environments have become so duplicated that they have progressed beyond real-time monitoring, which means it’s time to move to the future. With proactive consolidated reporting, you can better anticipate the changing factors that play a critical role in the success of your organization. Harness the power of your storage data to forecast precise outcomes, track your growth trends, and improve performance. Schedule a demo to talk to a VSI data expert.
