Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness

Two centuries, two scores, and two years ago this Wednesday, our forefathers ratified and declared the independence of the first thirteen colonies of America.

Frequently quoted and etched into the consciousness of every American are the words “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.”

But did you know that John Adams predicted that—from one end of this continent to the other—succeeding generations of Americans would be celebrating this momentous occasion on July 2nd? Even in gestation and before the formation of our nation, Congress took extra time (two days in this case) to iterate, debate and approve the wording of the Declaration.

What does all this have to do with Enterprise IT, you may ask? For decades IT professionals have had to live with, tolerate and accept the intrinsic unpredictability and volatility of their function—that the IT Ops team could be made to feel invisible—and even underappreciated. That is invisible until batch jobs fail, mission-critical applications go down, or system-wide IT outages occur. In which case the IT administrator or manager gets an emergency text message, email, and phone call in the middle of the night—or perhaps while enjoying a leisurely backyard barbecue, on the Fourth of July.

What if IT gains a solution that lets them proactively detect anomalies and to surgically home in on root causes—at its fingertips? And when batch jobs fail, how much speed and efficiency and piece of mind would IT gain—if it had a single command center to unify and manage disparate job schedulers? Read the following Ovum on the Radar report to learn how Digitate’s ignio equips IT departments—large and small—with the above. And empower every man and woman to exercise his/her unalienable right—of Life, Liberty and Pursuit of Happiness. IT Admins, IT Decision-makers, CIO’s and beyond. Happy Independence Day!
