Complex IT Environments made easy with AIOps
Artificial Intelligence assisted IT Operations (or AIOps) is now the most pivotal technology intervention that is helping IT Services team to evaluate and identify the actual challenge in the IT estate that comprises of complex infrastructure and applications. The estate shares a volume of data that speaks a lot about the way the estate is behaving and how operations team can respond. The challenge is how to churn and analyse the data to enable the operations team.
With AIOps operations team can quickly identify the areas of concern and with faster turnaround can improve infrastructure response. AIOps helps monitoring and alerting the team for issues occurred, potential issues that may occur and by automating response to the issues. AIOps helps reduce the workload of monitoring team and allows them to focus on other critical tasks.
AIOps and Monitoring
When the IT estate is complex AIOps becomes crucial for monitoring the IT estates, as it is spread across multiple locations including cloud. The monitoring team needs to track logs, traces, and events. The monitoring team must collect data and analyse data, to derive certain actionable. The AIOps platform does all the data collection, co-relation, analysis and combines related issues to trace the root cause and enables faster resolution. The key function of AIOps is to precisely identify problems before they occur and reduce the possibility of outage.
Areas that AIOps can deliver better success are
- 1. Data and its consistency: Systems generate volumes of data for monitoring and the data keeps increasing with time and addition of systems. The data need to be available for processing regularly and in a specific format for the AIOps platform to respond faster.
- 2. Design simplicity in complexity: The interconnections of the systems need to be designed in the simplest possible way. This helps alerts from varied systems, Applications, workloads, and other deployments to come in a proper way. The AIOps can respond better and faster to such well-designed environment.
- 3. Adoption to change: the adoption to changes that are due to governing policies, change in technology, migration to new systems (application and infrastructure) occur faster than ever before. The AIOps helps IT Operations team to adopt to the new platforms faster.
- 4. Cloud readiness: with the shift of investment to “As-a-Service” scenario, the cost optimization pushes the adoption of auto-scaling, in flight tuning, and can address higher volume of data.
With the overall complexity building up that increases the dependency on skills and systems, automation and AIOps plays a key role in helping overcome these challenges.
