Abrigo is a financial technology firm that provides software solutions to financial institutions in the financial crimes and credit and lending space. They offer their customers a robust product set, including hosting critical websites in their data centers.
Operating in the financial technology space, Abrigo has seen the need to provide and support software through constant evolution and innovation to meet regulatory demands, especially as they grow to support larger financial institutions.
When beginning the search for a unified observability and monitoring platform, Abrigo wanted to eliminate tool sprawl and reduce alert fatigue by finding a single solution that could help them improve uptime and customer experience while monitoring their diverse internal and customer infrastructures through a single pane of glass.
Security was a top concern, as well as avoiding vendor lock-in. They needed a platform that would improve key metrics while providing more resilience and automation.

LogicMonitor has allowed Abrigo to replace all their infrastructure monitoring, with no need for any other tools. The LM platform handles configuration management, uptime, and gives unified observability into the entirety of their tech stack including cloud monitoring.
Abrigo was impressed by the robust dashboards that allow them to not only effectively monitor their own infrastructure and resources but easily provide comprehensive, useful data to their customers.
The flexibility of the LM platform was key, with the sheer amount of integrations and data sources available, including the ability to add custom data sources to do things like query SQL databases which allows them viability into custom processes they weren’t able to monitor with other tools.
Using escalation chains within LM has reduced alert fatigue. Because LogicMonitor can comprehensively monitor everything, the smart alerts systems ensure that when there is an issue the correct person is notified and provided with the information they need to quickly resolve the problem.
Using LogicMonitor has also helped Abrigo to become more proactive in the maintenance and administration of their environment. Instead of simply responding to issues after they occur, they’re now able to use tools like historical data and forecasting to anticipate and remedy problems before they impact customers. This kind of forecasting also allows Abrigo to anticipate the need for additional resources such as new equipment, which has been key as they scale rapidly.
By adding website monitoring to their LM Platform, Abrigo is able to visualize the levels of availability for mission-critical websites. And adding cloud monitoring ensures that VMs in Azure are monitored alongside the rest of their infrastructure.

With uptime being a crucial measure of success, LogicMonitor has helped achieve and exceed uptime goals by providing metrics and insights into the entire environment. Abrigo can accurately report to customers that they are not only meeting but exceeding their SLAs by providing 99.99% uptime.
The efficiency of maintenance has increased, with the automated processes and escalation chains ensuring that problems are reported and resolved more quickly. Engineers no longer have to jump between tools to diagnose and solve problems. Automated discovery and the level of intelligence in the LogicMonitor platform saves engineering time, and they no longer have to laboriously collect and interpret data manually.
The availability of robust data on resources and forecasting has allowed Abrigo to scale rapidly and onboard customers more efficiently and provide them with a better experience.
An unexpected benefit, LogicMonitor has been a valuable asset in helping to establish and prove compliance, which has been especially beneficial for Abrigo in business development and pitching to potential clients.
