Get the job done with end in mind!
Modern, cloud-centric IT infrastructures are very complex. To ease the maintenance and management of a component/sub-system (SSO, Active Directory, LDAP, Application Servers, Web Servers, Database, etc.), the component providers have made available a lot of options (both on-premise and cloud based), but these stay as standalone notification-only capabilities that need to be further triaged before actions can be taken. Even in a mid-sized IT environment, there could be tens of such sub-systems that need to be tuned (to co-exist with other sub-systems), resulting in an exponential increase of parameters that must be tweaked and adjusted.
In the event of an outage, the human tendency of each component owner is ensuring the health of their component and, in the process, the overall health of the IT environment may suffer. The attitude of “my system is working fine” results in a longer troubleshooting and remediation cycle, impacting customer satisfaction and productivity.
Diagnosis of a system outage is a good first step. But the key is to address and fix the outage at the earliest to ensure smooth continuity of business. After the Root Cause Analysis of an outage is accomplished, ideally, the failure should be addressed in an automated manner with as little human intervention as necessary.
