Welcome to the very first edition of Modern Monitoring, a collection of articles and insights designed to help IT operations and DevOps professionals deliver more resilient, supportable and high-performance IT services.
It’s perhaps a sign of the times that monitoring as a discipline is receiving much more attention within the biz tech community. And deservedly so. The new distributed application architectures being built, together with the dizzying pace of software delivery, demand new approaches in what’s traditionally been perceived as a “keeping the lights on” IT practice.
Of course, there’s no better way to consider monitoring than to draw parallels with other practices in related fields. It’s why we’ve included a couple of pieces with a distinct aeronautical flavor that discuss importance of instrumentation and contextual awareness.
This infographic looks at Software Engineers who do awesome ops, ensuring millions of users having super-fast and reliable service from today’s massively complex systems!
We look at the key skills and tools required in Modern monitoring and analytics:

Suddenly, the network is cool again. Tech trends such as the Internet of Things, software-defined networking and growing end-user expectations all add up to a demand for “dialtone” network performance and reliability. But as the data deluge continues to accelerate, and as organizations continue to rely on multiple clouds to achieve business goals, how can the network keep up, much less meet tomorrow’s demands?
This e-book looks at the trends that are impacting the enterprise network—the modern network—the issues it creates for NetOps professionals, and how organizations can act today to plan for tomorrow.
The advent of cloud computing and software-defined data center architectures for modern application delivery has made networking more sensitive than ever before. Applications in the digital age require networks that can expand and contract dynamically based on consumer demand. Enterprises are implementing software-defined networking (SDN) to deliver the automation required by these new environments, but the dynamic nature of SDN makes network management and monitoring fundamentally more challenging.
Network infrastructure teams need monitoring tools that can provide visibility into these new and constantly changing networks. This white paper explores the importance of SDN monitoring and examines a leading example of a solution, CA Performance Management with CA Virtual Network Assurance integration.
Plötzlich ist das Netzwerk wieder angesagt. Technische Trends wie das Internet of Things, softwaredefiniertes Networking und wachsende End User-Erwartungen führen zu einer Nachfrage nach ungestörter Performance und Zuverlässigkeit des Netzwerks.
Die Datenmengen werden zunehmend größer, und Unternehmen können ihre geschäftlichen Ziele nur noch mit mehreren Clouds erreichen. Wie kann das Netzwerk in dieser Situation Schritt halten und auch noch die künftigen Anforderungen erfüllen? In diesem eBook werden die Trends analysiert, die das Unternehmensnetzwerk beeinflussen – das moderne Netzwerk. Zudem werden die damit für NetOps-Experten verbundenen Probleme und Maßnahmen von Unternehmen zur Vorbereitung auf die Zukunft behandelt.

Regardless of the size of the vehicles, and often despite the utmost caution, operating vehicles can be a risky endeavor.
According to the National Highway Transportation Safety Administration, highway accidents accounted for 37,461 deaths in the U.S. in 2016.1 Moreover, a recent study by Motus, a vehicle management and reimbursement platform, found that 40% of all motor vehicle accidents are work-related and cost employers a staggering $56.7 billion in 2017, taking into account medical expenses, property damage, increased insurance premiums, and lost productivity.2 While liability insurance is an important way for employers to address that risk, it’s by no means a panacea. Companies can and should be doing more to lessen the likelihood of accidents in the first place. And given that the vast majority (94%, according to NHTSA’s study) stem from driver-related actions or inactions as opposed to equipment malfunctions, one of the most important ways of doing so is to ensure that the in

Collaboration among compliance safety, and risk
DS Services, a distributor of leading beverage brands to residential and business customers, employs more than 3,500 drivers nationwide. Tracking its drivers – and ensuring they’re qualified to be behind the wheel – isn’t easy. “Reviewing motor vehicle records (MVRs) can take weeks, as every state reports violation information differently,” says Jason Gay, DOT compliance administrator for DS Services. “I was spending 12 to 15 hours a week on paperwork alone. It was time to simplify the process.”
DS Services originally turned to SambaSafety to help reduce paperwork and increase efficiency; however, by incorporating continuous driver monitoring into its safety program, DS Services is able to impact its business in . other positive ways.
Three myths about driver safety can cause business leaders to make dangerous decisions -- exposing their organizations to unnecessary risk.

Achieving and maintaining a high level of information security requires information security professionals with robust skills as well as organisational, technical and operational capabilities. The gap between intent and ability to be secure is evident in our sample of UK large enterprises. Deficient companies will only close that gap when they acquire the necessary capabilities. Some of these capabilities can be purchased as information security tools or application solutions, but it is more prudent for an organisation to consider acquiring these capabilities through a service arrangement with a dedicated security services partner.
Despite long-standing concerns captured in a myriad of surveys, security in the cloud has progressed to a more practical and achievable level.
The cloud represents a shared security responsibility model whereby that responsibility is split between the Cloud Service Provider and the cloud customer. For organisations moving some or all of their applications and data to the cloud, acceptance of this model clears the way to more thoughtful consideration for how security can and should be architected — from the ground up. As a result, IT and IT Security leaders now have a much clearer trajectory to support their business operations in the cloud in a secure manner.
Finding a strategic partnership with a trusted security expert that can assist you in all the aspects of information security is vital. SecureWorks is a market leader in security that can close the security gap in organisations by evaluating security maturity across an enterprise, help define security strategies and implement and manage security program plans. We are a true strategic partner that can help a CISO embed security at all levels of the organisation.
The SecureWorks Security and Risk Consulting practice provides expertise and analysis to help you enhance your security posture, reduce your risk, facilitate compliance and improve your operational efficiency.
Technical Tests are designed to cover specific services. Each security test has its own objectives and acceptable levels of risk. There is not an individual technique that provides a comprehensive picture of an organisation’s security when executed alone. A qualified third party can work with you to determine what combination of techniques you should use to evaluate your security posture and controls to begin to determine where you may be vulnerable.
GDPR will pose different challenges to each organisation. Understanding and acting on the implications for your own organisation is vital. That means taking a risk-based approach to ensure that you are doing what you need to do to manage your own specific risks to personal information.
While virtually all organisations will have to implement changes to become GDPR compliant, some will be able to take partial advantage of existing compliance to other security mandates and frameworks, such as ISO 27001 and PCI by extending those measures to protection of personal data. Even so, further work will be required to comply with GDPR, both with regards to security and its other aspects.
IDC's research shows that, worldwide, over 70% of enterprise cloud users currently rely on multiple clouds (public and/or private) to support a wide range of applications and workloads. Efficient management of these resources depends on IT operations and DevOps teams having access to consistent, accurate infrastructure performance monitoring data and reporting that span the full set of on-premise cloud infrastructure and public cloud IaaS services. CA Technologies recently announced new capabilities for CA Unified Infrastructure Management (CA UIM) that allow the product to more fully address the monitoring needs of complex multicloud infrastructure as part of delivering on CA's vision to fully enable the agile DevOps in the application economy.
