Monitor the performance and capacity of end-to-end IT computer systems using a variety of tools. Triage hardware, software, and environmental faults, alerts or malfunctions. When an issue is identified, the MSO works to determine the cause of the problem, provide situational awareness and resolution to the user community. Serve as first responder and 'one-stop shop' for all site issues, requiring a broad level of knowledge of high priority systems across a multi-location enterprise.
