The ability to monitor the health of business services is a key advantage of having a service-aligned” view of IT. Underpinning this service-aligned view is a concise, accurate, real-time mapping of applications, their supporting IT components, and their inter-relationships. Once these maps are bound to real-time data from IT service monitoring and event management systems, an accurate, always up-to-date measurement of the health of each business service is readily accessible, including the criticality and priority of incidents affecting service health. Ideally, this information is presented in an intuitive dashboard that lets IT staff see the health of business services across the enterprise at a glance.
