Group Manager, Application Development

Unified Monitoring Framework (UMF) is a centralized, generic framework for monitoring the health and performance of critical business processes, applications, and the underlying infrastructure.

UMF is an extensible, centralized monitoring service framework, built using an industry-standard framework. It avoids application-specific builds, which are difficult to reuse/costly to build/maintain and provides a standardized, uniform mechanism for data collection, visualization and analytics.

UMF is built using state-of-the-art big data tech stack comprised of technologies such as Apache Kafka, Apache Storm, Neo4J, ElasticSearch, Logstash and Kibana.
