How Centreon EMS can help your ITOM teams to monitor infrastructure & IT services?

In our recent tutorial “Create your own custom view with Centreon”, Laurent teached you how to use the widgets correctly.
I would like to supplement that tutorial today by showing you how to use the Centreon MAP, Centreon BAM and Centreon MBI widgets to create dashboards which facilitate monitoring of business-oriented IT performance.

Whether you have one product or the complete Centreon EMS solution, the widgets make it possible to create personalized dashboards (custom views) to keep an eye on the health of your IT services.
Is my service ok? What has been happening recently? What are the potential risks? What trend can I expect? When can I schedule my maintenance slots? Is now the time to think about investing in new IT resources and, if so, internally or externally?
The answers to all these questions can be found in unified views by leveraging Centreon EMS widgets.
Follow our example of a mail service monitoring and discover how to be on top of your IT game!
