Any type of network downtime has a significant impact on today’s businesses. According to a recent study by Statista the average cost of IT downtime is between $350,000 and $400,000 per hour. 

For this reason, IT teams rely on network analytics tools to identify key trends and patterns occurring in a network to ensure their networks perform at an optimal level. 

Today, with a steep increase in network complexity and the added pressure of demand for improved reliability, there’s a need for an evolution in approach to network monitoring. IT teams need richer analytics along with monitoring to surface issues before they become problems. TIBCO Spotfire is a proven solution.

Why Your Investment in Network Analytics Demands Spotfire’s Capabilities 

According to an IDC FutureScape Report, there will be an acceleration to cloud-centric technologies and edge deployments will be a top priority. These are the top two trends we could see in the near future; what weaves them together is the network health of your business. To make your business operations resilient and drive competitive advantage, you need network analytics that bring the most valuable insights to you. 

The bottom line: You have to know why your network behaves the way it does. You need to be able to compare historic data with real-time data in a single environment for the most current, comprehensive view of IT networks, and for the insights into behavior that matter most. Network Analytics empowers your IT teams with information about network health, helps your leaders determine performance trends, and provides historical network data that can provide benefits for the entire enterprise. 

From traffic to business initialization with application sharing, IT teams need insights to solve business problems. Network analytics pinpoints specific issues determining what, when, and how. Predictive analytics assists to potentially prevent future performance network issues if a repeated event is suggested by the data. And Spotfire shines in immersive, smart, real-time analytics, enabling predictive and even prescriptive analytics.
