The number of tools for IT Ops professionals to choose from is overwhelming. For this reason, we created the periodic table of IT Ops tools to better define, organize, and explain the IT Ops tooling landscape. It is our hope that it will help IT professionals find, explore, and choose tools for their future IT Ops stack.
In a portion of this table we dive into IT Infrastructure Monitoring tools specifically. Below you will find a list of the top IT infrastructure monitoring tools per the interactions we measure on the table.
What is ITIM?
For an organization, information technology infrastructure management (ITIM) is the management of essential operation components, such as policies, processes, equipment, data, human resources, and external contacts, for overall effectiveness. Infrastructure management is sometimes divided into categories of systems management, network management, and storage management. Infrastructure management products are available from a number of vendors including Hewlett-Packard, IBM, and Microsoft.
