"Over the years we have had GFI MAX customers ask for Network Operations Center services to complement the GFI MAX RemoteManagement solution, and we have seen this trend grow as MSPs seek to maximize the agility of their operations using flexible resource models," said Dr. Alistair Forbes, general manager of the GFI MAX Business Unit. "In response, we established this partnership with the industry's premier private-label NOC services provider."

"Continuous monitoring of the health of client networks and the ability to respond quickly are key capabilities for any IT services organization, but they often require 24/7 staffing and a broad base of expertise to resolve different types of technical issues," Forbes continued. "By leveraging NOC services in combination with GFI MAX RemoteManagement, MSPs can outsource routine infrastructure management to a dedicated team of system administrators and keep internal resources focused on delivering superior customer service and growing the managed services practice."

The essence of data analysis involves setting up data pipelines that consist of several operations that are chained together – starting from data collection, data quality checks, data integration, data analysis and data visualization (including the setting up of interaction paths in that visualization). In our opinion, the challenges stem from the technology diversity at each stage of the data pipeline as well as the lack of process around the analysis.
