In the old days of monolithic architectures, IT operations teams could manage service-disrupting incidents themselves. But these architectures have evolved, and the systems our digital economy relies on today are too complex and produce too much data for human operators to monitor, let alone fix. Artificial Intelligence for IT Operations (AIOps) solutions automate system monitoring and remediation strategies to help DevOps and SRE teams ensure that services and apps are continuously available ...

The work must begin months before, as organizations learn from the year prior and take steps to improve experiences and operations, fine-tune systems, plug in new data sources to enrich machine-learning algorithms, move more workloads to the cloud, automate, and experiment with new tech.
