Gartner Report: Leverage Office 365 Monitoring Practices to Improve Availability and Eliminate Performance Challenges

We believe Office 365 is a cornerstone application for enterprises that have turned to SaaS as part of digital transformation efforts. But when Office 365 doesn’t perform as expected, it can impact worker productivity and fluster IT teams as they scramble to identify root causes.

Without visibility into external environments, IT teams are often blindsided by external network and service issues that impact Office 365 performance. While IT might not own all of the infrastructure underlying application experience, they are ultimately responsible for employee digital experience.

In this research from Gartner, we believe you’ll learn why:

  • “Application performance issues within Office 365 can occur in many locations and components, making it difficult for I&O leaders to identify the root causes of problems that can limit productivity.”
  • “Legacy monitoring tools fail to cover the breadth and depth of functionalities included in Office 365, including voice, video and real-time collaboration platforms, limiting I&O leaders’ visibility into the user experience.”
  • Enterprises must “enhance visibility into the user experience by leveraging SaaS-based monitoring tools that focus on global, end-to-end usage and synthetic transactions.”
