This means everything from signing up for an account to checking out online needs to be perfected for a smooth, easy user experience. If potential customers are frustrated by your sign-up process, or things don't work as they'd expect, it's all too easy for them to turn to your competitors for similar offerings and easier user experiences ...

Enterprises wrestle with true observability because most observability data remains dark or unexploited. The scale, complexity, variety of data consumers, and runaway costs make it difficult for enterprises to get value from their machine data. There are other technical and organizational challenges, such as data and department silos, the complexity of managing data in cloud-native and hybrid cloud environments, and the inefficiency of single-pane-of-glass approaches to route data to appropriate destinations. Let's take a look at three of the most pervasive pain points, according to the survey, holding enterprises back from observability nirvana ...

Still not convinced on the value an AIOps platform offers? Consider this: one minute of downtime at Amazon costs the company roughly $220,000 in revenue. With that kind of money on the line, SRE and DevOps teams forced to manage availability by writing rules and querying logs manually are set up to fail — and failure is costly. AIOps is the necessary lift your monitoring tools need to improve performance and cut out the toil for DevOps and IT teams. Here are five ways AIOps does exactly that ...
