Category: Automation Section: Birds of Feather (BOF) session Status: Confirmed


For years, IT has struggled to keep the lights on. Now that businesses are aggressively pursuing digital transformation, that battle is becoming even more difficult. The number of applications and services is exploding. Changes are now measured in seconds or minutes, instead of months or years. Approaches such as DevOps are driving this acceleration – but, unless IT operations can keep up, digitalization will inevitably hit a brick wall.

So, here’s the question. How do IT operations keep pace? How does it rise above today’s siloed IT environment, breaking down barriers and automating processes in the same way that DevOps does?

AIOps is the answer. (Artificial Intelligence for IT Operations). AIOps uses machine learning to automatically detect, diagnose, and even remediate IT service issues in real-time. That means you resolve service issues quickly and accurately – and it takes far less effort. As it evolves, AIOps will intelligently automate a wide set of IT processes, delivering benefits across the entire operational lifecycle. Instead of struggling to keep up with the ever-increasing pace of IT operations, you now leverage machines to stay ahead of the curve. AIOps streamlines and strengthens IT operations, in the same way, that continuous integration and deployment powers DevOps.

    Hello Jayesh,

    Here are the feedback from today’s rehearsal:

    1. The agenda slide can be avoided.
    2. Include an introduction slide introducing the speaker.
    3. The speaker needs to pace the talk down.
    4. The speaker was shaky.
    5. More pictorial representation would be good.
    6. The presentation talks about theory but lacks the real life stories.
    7. There are many terminologies which are being discussed all through the talk, there should be a separate slide explaining them.
    8. The link of your ebook on AIOPS needs to be added at the end slide.
    9. The speakers seems tired at the end of the talk.
    10. Include war stories.
    11. Demo should be pre recorded.
    12. Include an end slide having your contact credentials.
    13. Include a take away slide.
    14. The talk needs to restructured.
    15. Explain the problem you were trying to solve.
    16. Why did you go for AIOPS?
    17. Name the other organizations going for AIOPS?
    18. What are the loose ends of AIOPS?
