    Source: Moogsoft
    White Paper: The monitoring technology of the early 2000s is now woefully inadequate to meet the diverse needs of next-generation operations. It's time to move forward with modern ops monitoring tools and approaches.

    In particular, composable monitoring is an approach to modularizing the technologies necessary to implement comprehensive IT monitoring.

    Composable monitoring is important for meeting customers' expectations of performance and usability in today's digital world, and it is the only approach that has the flexibility and variety to meet the vast diversity of enterprise needs.

    Composable monitoring, however, requires architecture: an instrumentation layer, a management layer, and 360┬░ situational awareness, as modern MoM tools like Moogsoft's must work at the 'software-defined everything' layer-taking into account the fact that much of the enterprise infrastructure is virtualized.
