Stakeholders want to use cloud-based, software as a service (SaaS) monitoring and management tools. They need to understand what services and solutions deliver to achieve end-to-end visibility, reduce costs, and focus less on infrastructure and maintenance of traditional software-based IT operations tools.

Azure Monitor expanded to include several different services originally developed with independent functionality:

  • Azure Monitor itself
  • Application Insights
  • Log Analytics
  • Unified alerting service
  • Azure Network Watcher
