Monitoring the applications that run your business is an operational task that keeps your team from focusing on designing and implementing new technologies that have the potential to transform the business.

With Oakwood’s Custom Application Monitoring Services, you can depend on Oakwood to give you visibility into the health of your online or web applications so that you can ensure both your users and your customers have an excellent experience in their interactions with you and also that you are meeting your service level agreements to the business.


What is Custom Application Monitoring?

Oakwood understands that complex applications spanning physical, virtual, and hybrid-cloud environments, make it difficult for IT organizations to understand and deliver the flawless experience end users demand. At Oakwood, we understand that application uptime and availability does not always equal an excellent customer experience. If an application is slow, or they can’t complete a shopping cart order in a timely manner, customers may go elsewhere.

Additionally, in today’s world of social media, news of any missteps can go viral in minutes jeopardizing revenue and tarnishing your brand image. This is where Oakwood can help you build customer loyalty and revenue through positive online interactions by monitoring that experience and alerting you if the experience isn’t what your customer should expect.
