The Internet of Things (IoT) is composed of sensor-embedded devices and machines
that exchange data with each other and the cloud through a secure network.
Often referred to as “things” or “edge devices”, these intelligent machines
connect to the internet either directly or through an IoT gateway,
enabling them to send data to the cloud. Analyzing this data can reveal
valuable insights about these objects and the business processes
they’re part of, helping enterprises optimize their operations.
Devices in IoT deployments can span nearly any industry or use case.
Each one is equipped with sensors, processing power, connectivity,
and software, enabling asset control and other remote interactions
over the internet. Unlike traditional IT assets, these edge devices are
resource-constrained (either by bandwidth, storage, or processing
power) and are typically found outside of a data center, creating unique
security and management considerations.
Traditional performance management solutions were built for applications owned by the enterprise and run inside the corporate network. The explosive adoption of Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) and cloud applications have brought new performance management challenges that push the limits of the enterprise infrastructure and break these traditional approaches. In this white paper, we examine why existing solutions don’t work for the modern enterprise and discuss a fundamentally different approach that is needed to address the new challenges.
