When I started the AI+ITOPS Podcast with Pete Goldin, Editor and Publisher of APMdigest, just a few months ago, we wanted to do about 6 or so episodes, and have a few people listen in, give them some advice, engage with them regularly. We thought we will have about 1000 downloads/people listening and if we reached that goal of solving a pain point for 1000 people then we did our job.

Guess what?


The AI+ITOPS Podcast just hit the 10K + download mark early this month. Most people listen to entire episodes, and many engage with us by sending a note on LinkedIn, Twitter, a direct email asking questions, clarifications, strategy advice, product selection advice, etc. We took a break from the podcast series over the holidays as we got busy with lives and COVID-19, but new episodes will be coming soon.

Meanwhile, I want to post a quick blog saying "Thank you" for the overwhelming support we received. Especially some of the ideas for a future podcast, guest recommendations were genuine and top-notch.

Pete and I want to thank you all for the overwhelming support. We are humbled, honored, and will continue to work hard to bring the latest in expert commentary on AIOps, CloudOps, DevOps, ITOps, AI, ML in enterprises.

If you are an SRE, Ops person, DevOps person, and IT decision-maker, or an IT executive figuring out how to clean up this "operation digitization" that expedited your operations to go digital, without proper planning, please reach out to me. I am more than happy to help in any way I can.

As always, if you would like to be a guest on the podcast, or if you want to nominate someone to be a guest, or if you want us to cover a specific topic, or if you want to sponsor some episode(s) please feel free to reach out to us: APMdigest or The Field CTO.

Please continue to support by checking, bookmarking, listening, recommending, and socializing our podcasts. We thank you for your continued support.

More importantly, stay safe!

Downtime. It's more than just a bar on the Rebel Alliance's base on Folor. For IT Ops teams, downtime is not fun. It costs time, money and often, user frustration. It takes more than the Force to handle incidents ... it takes an intergalactic team. An effective incident management team is made up of people with many different skill sets, styles and approaches. We thought it would be fun to map the heroes of IT Ops with Star Wars characters (across Star Wars generations) based on their traits ...
