“Monitoring encompasses the tracking of individual processes, so that information on their state can be easily seen, and statistics on the performance of one or more processes can be provided.” Conceptually, continuous monitoring systems generally consist of three levels: data provisioning, information management, and information presentation. Data provisioning is enabled by the collection and storage of specified items in an assigned location. Information management utilizes the combination of IT architecture knowledge, analytic knowledge, as well as collected data to assess processing. Whereby, information presentation provides results from monitored conditions.
