Introduction to Business Units

Business Units enables you to segregate and streamline IT monitoring among different Business Units in your organization from a single console. It lets you organize and administer individual monitoring accounts based on business application, geography, type, and resource ownership.

Who should enable Business Units Account?

  • Any organization, which has multiple ITOps teams to monitor and manage their Business Unit’s disparate IT assets can use a single management console instead of depending on separate monitoring accounts for every Business Unit.
  • If individual Business Unit in your organization need the exclusive rights to access their IT monitoring reports and dashboards, you can try out Business Units Account to enable a secure business unit-based reporting.

Key benefits of using Business Units over regular Site24x7 account

  • Business Units offer better resource optimization and account’s handling over the usual Monitor Groups based administration.
  • Wholly handle subscription and billing for all your Business Units, including upgrades, purchase of additional add-ons and alert credits, centrally from a single console.
  • Pricing in Business Units is centralized. Licenses can only be purchased at a global-level and distributed among Business Units accounts, based on a particular Business Unit’s requirement.
  • Scalable and cost-effective model for organizations with multiple business units.

Points to ponder before enabling Business Units

  • Your current Site24x7 account gets auto-added as the default Business Unit account in management console. To create additional Business Units, buy Business Units add-on for $9/Business Unit per month (billed annually) or $10/Business Unit per month.
  • After enabling Business Units account, you can’t revert to your old Site24x7 account setup.
  • All your current monitoring and configuration data, including any business licenses will remain intact, even after enabling Business Units.
