The AI frontier – Driving reliable and stable IT operations
With the increasing adoption of the concepts of Site Reliability Engineering (SRE) in mainstream enterprises, automation is becoming more intrusive in IT operations. From detecting anomalies to suggesting ways to remediate them, AI and machine learning models that analyze data patterns in systems have shown the potential to streamline every phase of operations and development. They find their place in most of DevOps and SRE implementations. But as it has become evident that the value of any technology is only as good as its implementation. That will continue to be the key differentiator for effective AI and ML adoption in an enterprise. Read the blog to learn more.
