By evaluating network and server trends we can avoid surprises and downtime. For example, if a server is occupying 10GB of free space per week and the drive is 100GB it will be full in 10 weeks. If you have a monitoring system deployed, it should be setup to alert that the drive is going to be full in 10 weeks. This alert allows you to plan for data expansion, server replacement or a new method of saving files.
Monitoring is a helpful troubleshooting tool because there is a history of events that can be used to determine the cause of an issue. With proactive monitoring you can fix these events before they create any network downtime or outages.
You lock your doors, turn your alarm system on, install a smart camera but leave the exterior side gate unlocked. Most burglars are going to break in through a back entrance or windows. You go through so much trouble to ensure that your home is safe and secure but a critical step in security was left off.
Your business can be thought of in the same way. If your technology is left with it's "side gate" unlocked you risk a potential threat to your business.
