Return on investment (ROI) is an important factor for new technology purchase decisions. However, having invested in many security and monitoring tools, what is the best way to maximize the value of your tools? Cost avoidance for new tool purchases is one way for IT to maximize this ROI and make your security and monitoring solutions stronger.
One way is to use the tool beyond its useful life. Another option is to place strict limits on tool usage and access which creates its own set of inefficiencies. A third option is to implement a visibility architecture to optimize data flows across your monitoring tools. This last option allows you to realize efficiency and performance benefits from architectural changes and incremental purchases. It can dramatically increase the usable life, and by association the ROI, of your monitoring and security tool(s).
