A brick-and-mortar retailer managed in-store inventory using a business model used that involved both electronic and human components. While the IT monitoring was sophisticated, the business process was not monitored. This resulted in a few issues.
Retailer started using iControl to stabilize the inventory management system.
A Large European Bank was struggling with business process problems caused by technical outages. En
d-of-day payment deadlines were frequently missed, 'stuck payments' required manual intervention and the team spent excessive time resolving technical and business process issues.
The bank implemented iControl to monitor the following high level business process.
With iControl, the bank was able to identify process flow issues, in near real-time, enabling the business to immediately resolve issues (instead of waiting hours or days). Additionally, the bank identified the root cause of common problems and implemented permanent solutions resulting in productivity improvements and cost reductions.
The trading desk at a large oil company had no visibility into the mechanics of their trading process. Each order interacted with over sixty different components, ranging from pricing confirmation to order version verification. Multiple versions of the same trade could be traversing through the system at any one time. Specific SLA's were mandated for various steps in the trading process.
All of the IT systems were monitored by traditional solutions such as Splunk and AppDynamics, but there was no visibility into how the trading process was operating or if the SLA's were met.
The oil company implemented Business Process Monitoring on top of Splunk to understand how the trading orders were flowing through the trading system.

iControl is a Business Process Monitoring solution that gives CIO's and business line owners insight into their business and operational processes
What is Business Process Monitoring and how is it different than 'normal' monitoring?
There are two sides to stability - IT Operations and Business Process. Traditional, or normal, monitoring only ensures your IT Operations are running correctly. Everyone with IT systems is doing some form of traditional monitoring. Business Process Monitoring is the next step in monitoring which enables you to understand how your business is operating.
