Centralized Monitoring Solution using the Elastic Observability stack

Did you ever experience a service not running for three days without you knowing? Have you been notified by your business or customer that your system was not working correctly? Can you quickly diagnose the root cause of a problem without the need to log in on multiple systems?

IT is important as a key business enabler. As IT Operations you need to be in control. You don’t want to be pointed to a problem by your end-users or your customers.

An IT landscape exists of many applications

Every application has its own way of logging and monitoring. Having all your logging data centrally stored enables you to have a clear overview of your data and makes it easier to secure. Data stored in one central place makes it a single source of truth. The whole organization looks at the same data in the same way. Complex alerts and machine learning are made possible with more coverage of monitoring data.

This allows an organization to use that data for a high level (business) dashboard with KPI based information and more detailed IT Ops dashboards to quickly find any problems and their causes.

The Devoteam approach

  • Analyze, Analyse the components of the IT landscape. Which applications are connected to which? Which sources are a priority to monitor first?
  • Collect, Set up the Elastic stack. Create a data ingestion pipeline and start filling Elasticsearch with data. Start small and expand by adding more and more data sources.
  • Build, Create dashboards and alerts. Discuss with stakeholders if the monitoring solution meets their requirements. Adapt where needed.
  • Deliver, Deliver monitoring solutions bit by bit. Focus on getting all components of a single application covered, and expand onwards to other applications.
  • Training & Coaching, If you would like to manage your Centralized Monitoring platform, our consultants provide ongoing coaching and training to guide your sustained success!

How do we create value for your business?

First we need data to work with and use Elastic Beat or Logstash to collect the information. After that the data needs to be ‘shaped’ and ingested into Elasticsearch. This is where the data is indexed and prepared for usage.

With this we can start to discover, analyse and visualize the data and create value for any part of your business. Whether this is for IT, Ops, DevOps, SIEM, APM, etc.

We utilize the many tools within Kibana to provide an in-depth view and understanding of:

  • Application and Services – APM
  • Availability of hosts, network device(s) or third party services, Website, and API monitoring – Uptime

Depending on your requirements the Elastic Observability Stack can be operated On-Premise, Public Cloud or as a SaaS solution.
