Getting rid of your Franken-Monitor right now is both possible and desirable if you take an incremental approach that slowly phases out the Franken-Monitor while replacing it in new environments with an approach that is flexible and scalable enough to meet your future needs.

Management frameworks are dead because they have been unable to keep up with the pace of innovation in the enterprise computing industry. Management frameworks will be replaced by ecosystems of cooperating vendors that each reuse each other’s unique data through a common big data back end. Splunk is the first (but not the last) vendor to offer such a back end and to pursue such an ecosystem strategy.
Agile development, DevOps, language proliferation, platform proliferation, scaled out data centers, and applications distributed across private, hybrid and public clouds make management frameworks into dangerously useless legacy software. New economic models for selling and purchasing management software make frameworks unacceptably expensive. For these reasons frameworks need to be put on the glide path to oblivion.
