The complexity of the systems involved mean that slight changes can make a big difference, but be almost impossible for IT specialists to spot.

Many businesses, particularly those with large corporate networks, or those with a big online presence, rely on some form of network monitoring. This keeps a permanent eye on the state of websites, servers or databases, and sends out automated alerts to staff - often by SMS - as soon as something goes wrong.
