AIOps is rapidly becoming a de-facto option for enterprises' IT strategies, with nearly immeasurable benefits to be provided. However, AIOps is still a relatively new discipline and misconceptions surrounding the technology's capabilities and uses have caused bottlenecks and roadblocks in its widespread adoption. So, what should organizations expect from AIOps? How can organizations that want to digitally transform their IT pursue AIOps for maximum benefit? ...

Currently, (and most likely well into the future) the overwhelming majority of organizations still need to monitor and maintain enterprise applications. Moreover, where these are complex systems developed, debugged and refined over years, often decades, around a business's core processes, there can also be very strong practical arguments for viewing them as classics. They can offer a valuable legacy, one best left where it is, doing what it does, how it always has done ...

Anti-patterns involve realizing a problem and implementing a non-optimal solution that is broadly embraced as the go-to method for solving that problem. This solution sounds good in theory, but for one reason or another it is not the best means of solving the problem. Anti-patterns are common across IT as well, especially around application monitoring and observability. One that is particularly prevalent is in response to the increasing complexity of cloud-native infrastructure and applications ...

Software development is at the center of the digital future. Last year, it was put to the ultimate test when businesses around the world boosted digital transformation to the top of their agendas. As part of this shift, more companies chose to develop their own in-house software to further their digital efforts. However, this ultimately led to a break down in systems as these solutions were not developed with the wider business objectives in mind and simply were not successful ...

Your employees aren't coming back to the office, at least not in the traditional sense. The pandemic shifted almost all industries into remote work. And according to the results of Ivanti's Everywhere Workplace survey, they're not interested in going back to the way things once were ...

More and more mainframe decision makers are becoming aware that the traditional way of handling mainframe operations will soon fall by the wayside. The ever-growing demand for newer, faster digital services has placed increased pressure on data centers to keep up as new applications come online, the volume of data handled continually increases, and workloads become increasingly unpredictable. In a recent Forrester Consulting AIOps survey, commissioned by BMC, the majority of respondents cited that they spend too much time reacting to incidents and not enough time finding ways to prevent them ...

In the age of digital transformation, enterprises are migrating to open source software (OSS) in droves to streamline operations and improve customer and employee experiences. However, to unlock the deluge of OSS benefits, it's not enough for organizations to simply implement the software.

Enterprise wide-area networks (WANs) have undergone an incredible transformation over the past several years. More often than not, they're hybrid, offering multiple connection paths between WANs. This provides many benefits but also makes them more challenging to manage than ever before. In Part 1 of this series, we'll explore the top pain points associated with Internet-based WANs ...

As we have seen during this digital transformation boom during the pandemic, technologists are managing more applications and data than ever before, which has led three quarters of technologists to be concerned with increased IT complexity. Even more significant, 89% admitted to feeling under immense pressure to keep up with the churn, according to the recent AppDynamics Agents of Transformation report. It's clear that the pandemic has pushed many technologists to their breaking point. To help tackle IT burnout, tech professionals need a "canary" to help them streamline and catch the anomalies before they cause any major performance issues ...

The survey also confirmed the vital role played by automation, self-service IT, and continuous optimization of cloud spend on the digital transformation journey — and how most of these organizations are experiencing significant stumbling blocks in these very areas. It appears that a new cloud order is emerging and suddenly, what has been good enough no longer is ...

In summer 2020, changes to a Facebook API triggered a series of major mobile app crashes worldwide. Popular iOS apps including Spotify, Pinterest, TikTok, Venmo, Tinder and DoorDash, among others, failed immediately upon being opened, leaving millions of users without access to their favorite services. However, the API wasn't at fault, it was actually Facebook's iOS software development kit (SDK) that was responsible for the crash ...

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? ...
