When it comes to alarm monitoring - don't reinvent the wheel...

Avoiding the temptation of reinventing the wheel

Consider yourself fortunate if you have the engineering resources in you company to write your own monitoring software. However, just because you can doesn't mean you should. There are several factors that should be taken into consideration. First and foremost is time. How soon do you need the solution? Using an off the shelf solution solves your problem immediately. Don't forget to take into consideration that new development always takes longer than your engineers might estimate, taking time away from their primary duties. Once complete, their product just doesn't measure up to a commercial product and often requires extensive tweaking. Perhaps the biggest challenge is the ongoing support. Any critical monitoring component must be actively supported. What happens a few years down the line when the person who wrote that code is no longer there? (It happens).

Using professional monitoring products protects your network well

Selecting monitoring solutions designed by a company whose core competency is alarm collection and management makes sense for you. The various monitoring elements included in this proposal are based off of decades of experience and best practices in the industry. There are many benefits that you can only get from multi-generational hardware & software that couldn't even be contemplated in a first generation in house specification. There is no faster or better way to deploy a best in class system. Let our engineers leverage their monitoring system expertise, and let your team focus on their core competencies. You will be glad you did.
