Paessler Logo With the integration of more and more devices and processes into the digital infrastructure of companies, the complexity and the associated effort for their operation increases significantly. In connection with the shortage of skilled workers in the ICT sector, the maintenance and monitoring of this infrastructure is an increasing challenge for companies. Increasingly small IT teams must be familiar with a variety of different vendor-specific management and control tools. However, this multitude of tools often enough makes it difficult or even impossible to assess the overall condition. Proactive monitoring is just as difficult as reacting quickly to current failures and emerging bottlenecks. In order to remedy this, a solution is required that aggregates and displays data independent of the manufacturer and reacts with defined actions. This must meet at least three main criteria: compatibility, reliability and automation.

PRTG from Paessler is a monitoring tool that can be easily integrated into existing digital infrastructures. From monitoring hardware data to quality-of-service metrics in cloud applications, everything can be implemented. As a manufacturer-independent tool with around 300 preconfigured sensors for all common hardware and software manufacturers as well as extensive, tailor-made API capabilities, it can be set up conveniently and adapted to individual needs. The recorded data can be displayed in customized dashboards with an integrated alarm system. When a threshold is reached or an alarm is triggered, not only can you be notified individually, but you can also respond automatically via script or API call.

PRTG is a complete product with no modules or add-ons. Regardless of the size of the installation, you always have access to all features. Scaling is based purely on the number of licensed sensors and can be dynamically adjusted at any time. In contrast to many other solutions, there are no hidden costs. New systems can be inserted into existing dashboards using drag & drop. In this way, individually configured displays and alarm systems can be adjusted easily and quickly at any time.

PRTG's architecture also allows monitoring of large and distributed infrastructures with many locations. The connection to existing ERP or ticket systems as well as comprehensive reporting provide information about the status of the existing systems, even over a longer period of time. This makes PRTG the ideal solution for companies of all sizes to relieve their own resources and get a holistic overview of their own digital infrastructure.

The decision to use a monitoring tool to monitor the digital infrastructure should be professionally prepared. On the one hand, the correct installation and configuration is associated with effort, on the other hand, a change after a short time due to lack of compatibility or missing features causes unnecessary effort and costs. The selected tool must meet all the requirements of day-to-day business as well as those in emergencies, otherwise troubleshooting can be made considerably more difficult or even impossible.

These questions should be carefully examined so that the usually already limited resources are not used in projects that ultimately do not represent any relief. In this process, we will be happy to assist you as a reliable partner in defining criteria and evaluating the introduction of PRTG.

The basis for the decision to introduce PRTG is usually an extensive test phase with an unlimited license. Once this has been successfully completed, the project must be transferred to regular operation. While setting up a test installation usually has a pilot character and is therefore limited in scope, implementation across many locations with thousands of sensors for devices and processes quickly becomes complex and time-consuming. To avoid complications caused by errors in planning and implementation, it is advisable to implement this with an experienced partner at your side.

As your partner, we can strengthen our own limited resources, advise you during implementation or, if necessary, take over the entire process. In this way, challenges can be mastered better and breakdowns can be avoided. The quick, efficient and safe commissioning of small and large installations can be implemented with minimal strain on your own human and financial resources. With our many years of experience in implementing PRTG, we are your partner for a successful implementation that is tailored to your needs.

As with any highly specialized tool, professional training is recommended to get the most out of your investment. Although PRTG allows for quick and uncomplicated installation, only professional training of the employees makes it possible to acquire the necessary knowledge for operation and adaptation to your needs. As one of the few training partners in German-speaking countries certified by the manufacturer Paessler AG, we are your contact when it comes to training your staff for PRTG.

We offer our PRTG Basic and PRTG Advanced training courses, each designed for one day, as follows:

  • Classroom training in our training center in Frankfurt am Main (entire DACH region according to customer requirements)
  • Training remotely via Microsoft Teams with any time schedule, e.g. B. 4 x 4 hours (according to customer requirements worldwide in German and English)
  • Training at your site as a one or two-day event
