- A Monitoring Maturity Model
James' Monitoring Maturity Model outlines three stages of monitoring evolution: Manual, Reactive, and Proactive. Manual or None is typical in small organizations with limited IT staffing, while Reactive is common in small to medium enterprises and divisional IT organizations. Proactive is typical in web-centric organizations and mature startups, where monitoring is considered core to managing infrastructure and the business. It is interesting to note that organizations may not experience this evolution linearly or holistically, as different segments, business units, or divisions of an organization can have different levels of maturity.
