1. AIOps can benefit the finance industry.
This piece in Analytic Insights shows how AIOps is essential to being competitive in today’s finance industry.
Technology is now fundamental to the functioning of financial institutions, with many organizations relying on technology to supply key services. As a result, system uptime is critical to customer happiness and company performance, and systems must be monitored on a constant basis. Modern IT architectures, on the other hand, are fragmented, complicated, and interconnected, and the data is too large for the human mind to manage.
Artificial intelligence is used in AIOps technologies to assist SRE teams and DevOps practitioners in monitoring complex IT stacks, identifying–and even predicting–events, and providing actionable insights into repairs.
Here are some ways AIOps can help the finance sector:
- Enhance customer experience.
- Defend against cybercrime.
- Unlock time to innovate.

3. The Great Resignation has driven a managed services renaissance.
An article in SDX Central discusses how the Great Resignation is affecting the tech industry. As enterprises struggle to find full-time employees to fill critical infrastructure roles in networking and cybersecurity, many are turning to managed service providers to fill the gap.
Managed service and security service providers offer a broad range of services from fully and co-managed IT to a full complement of SD-WAN and cybersecurity tools. Buyer experience is driving a revolution in online retail experiences and creating headaches for QA test teams that aren’t leveraging AI-driven test automation solutions.
Given increasing security threats, combined with the growing complexity of operating networks and applications on-premises, in the cloud, and at the edge, the incentives for turning to managed services become obvious. Cybersecurity teams and service providers can benefit from hiring workers with diverse backgrounds.
And this is where the “great resignation” presents an opportunity to address the talent shortage.

The research includes only those enterprise IT categories that can transition to cloud: application software, infrastructure software, business process services, and system infrastructure markets. Gartner found that by 2025, 51% of IT spending in these four categories will have shifted from traditional solutions to public clouds. This is compared to 41% in 2022.
