Data is one of a company's most valuable assets — but Talend's recent Data Health Survey found only 40% of executives always trust the data they work with. Today, we have codes and inspections for physical infrastructure, satisfaction surveys for employees, and up-time monitors and stability tests for websites. But are we doing everything we can to understand the degree to which our data is exposed to risk? ...

The demand for AIOps has accelerated as organizations struggle with the increased complexities of IT systems, a disparate workforce, and the explosive growth of operational data. Gartner even recently stated that "there is no future of IT operations that does not include AIOps." For the modern enterprise, relying solely on traditional analysis or humans results in missed opportunities and potentially increases risk. So, what is AIOps? ...

In Agile, development and testing work in tandem, with testing being performed at each stage of the software delivery lifecycle, also known as the SDLC. This combination of development and testing is known as "shifting left." Shift left is a software development testing practice intended to resolve any errors or performance bottlenecks as early in the software development lifecycle (SDLC) as possible ...

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 ...

Complexity breaks correlation. Intelligence brings cohesion. This simple principle is what makes real-time asset intelligence a must-have for AIOps that is meant to diffuse complexity.

With so many of us working from home, IT leaders and executives are now more than ever interested in ensuring that the cloud services their team relies on are available. But instead of accessing popular business-critical applications such as Salesforce, G Suite, Office 365, Microsoft 365, and so on through the company's data center, employees now get these services directly from the Internet. Experience and productivity at each location vary by internet, ISP, gateway, proxy, etc. ...

It isn't uncommon for IT departments to be overwhelmed by alerts each week, causing alarm fatigue and making it hard for them to prioritize troubleshooting.

Developers are getting better at building software, but we're not getting better at fixing it. The problem is that fixing bugs and errors is still a very manual process ... That's because traditional observability tools will tell you if your infrastructure is having problems, but don't provide the context a developer needs to fix the code or how to prioritize them based on business requirements. Also, traditional observability tools produce far too much noise and too many false positives, leading to alert fatigue ...

Software spend in 2021 and beyond will be a hot button as organizations redirect priorities and spending as a result of the pandemic. Spend that can be linked to clear results — more productivity, more ROI, and better integration of the remote workforce — will be looked upon as worthy. However, wasted spend — particularly software assets that have devolved into "shelfware" or cloud waste — will be a ripe opportunity for CIOs and IT management to direct a laser beam on optimizing software asset usage and its potential drain on budget ...

Gartner describes business-driven hyperautomation as: "an approach in which organizations rapidly identify, vet and automate as many approved business and IT processes as possible through a disciplined approach. Hyperautomation involves the orchestrated use of multiple technologies, tools or platforms (inclusive of, but not limited to, AI, machine learning, event-driven software architecture, RPA, iPaaS, packaged software and other types of decision, process and/or task automation tools)." Hyperautomation topped Gartner's recent list of Top 10 Strategic Technology Trends, but is this just another new buzzword to further complicate our increasingly complex IT world? ...

In today's complex, dynamic IT environments, the proliferation of disparate IT Ops, NOC, DevOps, and SRE teams and tools is a given — and usually considered a necessity. This leads to the inevitable truth that when an incident happens, often the biggest challenge is collaborating between these teams to understand what happened and resolve the issue. Inefficiencies suffered during this critical stage can have huge impacts on how much each incident costs the business ...
