Moogsoft announced the release of Moogsoft Enterprise 8.0, a complete AIOps platform that enables IT Ops and DevOps teams to build a virtual Network Operations Center (NOC) and work more effectively from anywhere.
Moogsoft Enterprise consolidates visibility and control of monitoring tools to help entire IT Ops and DevOps teams reduce noise, prioritize incidents, reduce escalations and ensure uptime. Working from anywhere, the IT operator can now easily analyze alerts, logs, metrics and traces to find and resolve the root cause of incidents before they become outages.
With version 8.0, customers can create a Virtual NOC using the Moogsoft Situation Room to collaborate throughout the incident management process, and diagnose and resolve problems quickly, regardless of team members’ physical location. The platform also provides IT Ops teams a single-pane-of-glass to replace multiple screens each dedicated to different monitoring tools.
New features also enable teams to quickly identify actionable issues via new advanced noise reduction analysis and automated topology visualization for root cause analysis. Additionally, version 8.0 expands the platform’s integrated Workflow Engine (WE) with advanced collaboration add-ons to help customers connect with any existing system of record or escalation process.
“Moogsoft helps us better use our monitoring system to boost uptime, availability and ultimately deliver a Fanatical Experience for our customers,” said Greg Hrncir, Senior Vice President, Global Technical Support at Rackspace. “With AIOps, we can identify whether an alert is isolated to a single device or multiple devices, route the alert to the team best suited to provide support, and aggregate alerts into a single notification via Situation notices.”
“With Moogsoft AIOps we didn't miss any events that led to major outages in the past 12 months,” said a Moogsoft customer at one of the world’s 10 largest investment banks. “We have application support teams using the Moogsoft Situation Room, and we see their tickets going down since adopting it for incident detection and resolution.”
Moogsoft Enterprise 8.0 new features include:
- Alert Analyzer: Moogsoft offers customers the unique ability to leverage its patented noise reduction AI, known as Entropy, for more effective correlation. The new Alert Analyzer provides customers an intuitive user interface (UI) to visually configure, identify anomalies within, and fine tune the platform’s alert processing.
- Dynamic Topology Builder: The new Dynamic Topology Builder provides the virtual NOC with a greater level of visibility into the correlation process, based on logical, virtual and physical topological relationships. This unique feature allows customers to immediately gain real-time expanded insights into incidents, and visualize the probable root cause and potential impact associated with current and neighboring services.
- Enhanced Workflow Engine: The latest iteration of the Moogsoft AIOps Workflow Engine (WE) now enables customers to configure workflows and drive outcomes through an intuitive UI for each of the WE modules:
Ingest: delivers user control for advanced configuration of the event flow.
Enrich: enables customers to quickly enhance incoming data streams with external data sources including CMDB data directly from ServiceNow.
Automate: delivers new functionality with Ansible and Puppet to drive advanced remediation solutions.
Ticket: allows bi-directional integration into tools such as ServiceNow, Remedy and Cherwell.
Collaborate: easily configure PagerDuty, xMatters and Slack for users to directly communicate with the Situation Room team members.
- Enhanced Correlation and Versioning of ML Configurations: Version 8.0 delivers new platform functionality for transparency and control over the deployment of ML algorithms. New versioning, rollback and history capabilities allow customers to audit new deployments, enabling them to add, track, delete and change ML algorithms where necessary.
“In today’s business environment, AIOps is critical to continually assuring uptime of the digital services and experiences that connect companies with their customers,” said Moogsoft Founder and CEO Phil Tee. “Moogsoft Enterprise 8.0 allows IT Ops and DevOps teams working from anywhere to regain visibility and control over the scale and complexity of those services.”
- New Integrations: Moogsoft Enterprise 8.0 debuts new out-of-the-box integrations — including with AWS Firelens to ingest EC2 log files and with Opsgenie for on-call management. These Integrations are easily deployed via the UI and accelerate customers’ time to value.
- PagerDuty Bidirectional Integration: Moogsoft today also announced a new joint solution based on a bidirectional integration with PagerDuty for alert notification with any given Situation. This new functionality engages DevOps engineers in seconds, pointing them in the right direction with contextual and proactive insights to resolve incidents before alerts create business impact.
Moogsoft Enterprise 8.0 will be generally available in May.
Michael Olson on the AI+ITOPS Podcast: "I really see AIOps as being a core requirement for observability because it ... applies intelligence to your telemetry data and your incident data ... to potentially predict problems before they happen."
Enterprise ITOM and ITSM teams have been welcoming of AIOps, believing that it has the potential to deliver great value to them as their IT environments become more distributed, hybrid and complex. Not so with DevOps teams. It's safe to say they've kept AIOps at arm's length, because they don't think it's relevant nor useful for what they do. Instead, to manage the software code they develop and deploy, they've focused on observability ...
The post-pandemic environment has resulted in a major shift on where SREs will be located, with nearly 50% of SREs believing they will be working remotely post COVID-19, as compared to only 19% prior to the pandemic, according to the 2020 SRE Survey Report from Catchpoint and the DevOps Institute ...
All application traffic travels across the network. While application performance management tools can offer insight into how critical applications are functioning, they do not provide visibility into the broader network environment. In order to optimize application performance, you need a few key capabilities. Let's explore three steps that can help NetOps teams better support the critical applications upon which your business depends ...

Will Cappelli on the AI+ITOPS Podcast: "I'll predict that in 5 years time, APM as we know it will have been completely mutated into an observability plus dynamic analytics capability."
When you consider that the average end-user interacts with at least 8 applications, then think about how important those applications are in the overall success of the business and how often the interface between the application and the hardware needs to be updated, it's a potential minefield for business operations. Any single update could explode in your face at any time ...
Despite the efforts in modernizing and building a robust infrastructure, IT teams routinely deal with the application, database, hardware, or software outages that can last from a few minutes to several days. These types of incidents can cause financial losses to businesses and damage its reputation ...
