The Analytics Tab

Use the Analytics tab to view data insights and KPIs.

The Analytics tab provides you with powerful, interactive IT operations dashboards. These dashboards focus your data into widgets, which make it easy to see the impact of your monitoring tools and applications.

Use BigPanda Reporting or Unified Analytics to understand and proactively monitor your infrastructure for increased up-time and reduced mean time to resolve (MTTR).

You may see slightly different elements in the Analytics Tab if your organization is still using the BigPanda Reporting feature.

See the Unified Analytics documentation for more information on features and improvements, or reach out to your BigPanda Account Manager to learn about the rollout.

BigPanda Reporting will be deprecated following the migration to Unified Analytics.
