How AIOps Can Improve Data Center Management
Today’s data center management professionals face a unique challenge. Technologies like the Internet of Things (IoT) and cloud computing are elevating a new generation of IT applications, powering everything from smart cities to data-driven crisis response. However, these capabilities have made digital environments more complex by several orders of magnitude, making it increasingly difficult to effectively manage modern data centers.
Thankfully, an emerging trend known as AIOps — or Artificial Intelligence Operations — offers IT professionals the support they desperately need. By bringing artificial intelligence and visualization technologies to bear on a wide range of data center challenges, AIOps enables data center management professionals to automate administrative tasks, reduce unnecessary alerts, and identify anomalies before they cause wider issues.
AIOps tools are already helping IT teams in multiple scenarios, data center management included. In fact, a new report from OpsRamp shows that 87% of technology professionals say their AIOps solutions are delivering the value they had expected prior to implementation. Coupled with analyses showing that the market for AIOps platforms will grow from $2.6 billion in 2018 to $11.0 billion in 2023, these positive early results underscore the transformative potential of AIOps in the IT space.
For data center management professionals interested in learning more about AIOps, it’s important to understand the approach’s range of possible use cases, as well as the requirements for successful implementation. By doing so, data center teams can ensure they’ll reap the rewards of a technology that promises to revolutionize the IT industry at large.
