Are you expected to overcome a lot of challenges to support operations and minimize system downtime? Then you’ve probably heard about AIOps as a possible solution. To find out if you are ready, be honest about the challenges you are facing and ask yourself, “What are my biggest pain points? What do I struggle with day-to-day?”
If your answer is, “I don’t have a solid understanding of the status of applications or the health of my environment at any given time,” then you currently lack visibility into your enterprise. But how do you determine if AIOps can solve this problem?
Start by evaluating your operational situation, as it is now and as it will be in the near future. And ask yourself these five questions:
- Do you need large capacity scalability?
- What plans are in place to build the business?
- What will it take to grow IT to support the variety of tasks essential to the success of your organization’s goals?
- Does that future include automation and a need for smart, predictive analytics?
- And most importantly, is your organization ready to migrate to the cloud?
If your answer is yes to any of those questions, visibility is going to be just one of your challenges. Your IT environment is going to grow increasingly complex with the inevitable adoption of technology like cloud services, on-premises systems, business applications, storage, and microservices. And what will be even more daunting is attempting to integrate and manage all these cloud-forward and software-defined applications and services with a legacy platform—one that was never designed for the task.
This is where AIOps comes to the rescue. AIOps can not only help you with the challenges today, it can also help you meet the challenges you will face in the future.
So, what is AIOps?
AIOps is the application of advanced analytics to operations automation. AIOps builds real-time systems in the form of clean data lakes that make possible predictive outcomes for faster root-cause analysis and accelerated mean time to repair (MTTR). By providing intelligent, actionable insights that drive a higher level of automation and collaboration, AIOps can continuously improve your ITOps, saving your organization time and resources in the process. AIOps empowers your ITOps team to move at the speed that business expects today.
Because AIOps is designed to support today’s virtual systems, tomorrow’s innovations, as well your legacy tech, you can be sure that your IT management team can support your organization’s business mission now and into the future. That includes the technologies at the core of infrastructure and the applications that your lines-of-business need to work efficiently.
And with AIOps, you can minimize the number of tools needed to manage your infrastructure–no more manual processes for controlling threshold levels or looking at multiple screens to try to correlate alerts from one platform with performance data on another. Instead, you can consolidate your toolkit and implement intelligent management automation, predicting and responding to events prescriptively rather than waiting for them to happen.
AIOps provide the visibility that you have been sorely missing—and more. It is an essential investment in your business that will support business demands today and is a foundation on which you can build your business and automation strategy well into the future.
Face it. To survive, your business should adopt an AIOps approach to monitor and manage your IT environment. And there’s no better time than now.
