Why AIOps is Important to The New Intelligence

August 02, 2018

Businesses have become increasing reliant on applications, cloud solutions, and IT infrastructure to get the job done. So they need to make sure their applications are available and performing as expected. They have to keep their networks up and running. And they must work to secure their applications, data, and networks from cyberattacks and unauthorized access.

That’s not easy, especially in this day and age.

Understanding how applications and network resources and services are behaving is a challenge. That’s because both networks and the applications and services that run over them are supported by a variety of data and resources. That information and those resources may exist at different layers of the network or in an array of data systems. And their whereabouts may be a moving target, as containers and virtual machines come and go, and more around the network.

Businesses can only get the visibility they need to ensure their applications and networks are secure and performing up to par, and they can efficiently do troubleshooting, by bringing together the needed data. Then they need to analyze that information to find the root cause of problems and uncover trends to allow for predictive maintenance.

But aggregating and analyzing that data, and adjusting to the current situation in real time, is an enormous challenge. There’s so much data to gather and consider, that it’s just not possible for humans to do it alone. Operations teams need systems that use artificial intelligence to aggregate and analyze data.

That’s why TMC is launching the AIOps Expo, which will take place Jan. 30 through Feb. 1 at the Broward County Convention Center in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. We hope to see you there.

And we’d welcome your session and speaker suggestions. The AIOps Call for Papers is open through July 31 at this link.

Day 2, Cisco Live!

Tuesday was Day 2 of Cisco Live for Fiber Mountain and we continued to experience high levels of traffic, with many high value decision makers and influencers visiting our booth. One very interesting difference from most conferences I attend is that there are no titles on anyone's show badges. This allows open conversations without people being pretentious. I think this is a very good idea.
