As IT infrastructures evolve in scale and complexity, it is not sufficient anymore to use a silo-based approach for monitoring wherein each technology tier is monitored independently. The increased adoption of virtualization and cloud computing has introduced new dependencies between tiers. A problem in one tier (e.g., virtualization) affects other tiers (e.g., applications) and, in turn, the quality of service delivery.
