The #1 priority for IT leaders in 2023: observability
In 2023, it’s essential for enterprises to achieve end-to-end IT observability – using metrics, logs, and traces to obtain full visibility into and control over an organization’s applications, networks, and infrastructure. Unified observability allows enterprises to reduce IT outages and downtime, optimize their digital customer experience, and deliver transformational business outcomes.
LogicMonitor recently conducted a survey to identify the tools and techniques required to deliver end-to-end observability within modern enterprises. The findings also identify the shared characteristics of the “orchestrators” behind the push for full-stack observability. These IT leaders seek to bring IT infrastructure, applications, and business processes together to deliver context and visibility to their organizations.

IT Downtime Is Pervasive
97% of global IT leaders say their organization has experienced at least one IT brownout in the past three years. 94% say their organization has experienced at least one IT outage in the same period of time.
Enterprises plagued by five outages per year
Enterprises experience an average of 19 IT brownouts and 15 IT outages every three years. Enterprises with 5,000 or more employees are the most likely to have high annual IT outage and brownout totals.
Top three trends contributing to downtime
Organizations experience downtime for a myriad of reasons, but most IT leaders identify digital transformation initiatives as key contributors to increased IT downtime.
Downtime Negatively Impacts Businesses
As the world continues to digitally transform, organizations cannot afford to experience downtime. They must embrace unified observability to mitigate the risk of downtime and quickly resolve IT outages and brownouts when they do occur.
