  • Invest in IT infrastructure monitoring tools that have ECA capabilities when updating your monitoring tool portfolio
  • Combine IT infrastructure monitoring with IT service alerting tools for basic post processing of events
  • Avoid bloated ECA platforms that promise complete coverage, but demand significant professional services engagements to successfully deploy them
  • Look for features like topology views and dependency mapping for integrated and holistic service layer monitoring
