ScienceLogic Product Tour: Improving Business Outcomes with Service-Centric Monitoring

Digital business services are spread across on-premises, cloud, and SaaS environments. But assuring great service performance is increasingly difficult. Organizations are shifting from device-based monitoring to business service-based monitoring in order to meet the increasing expectations of end users and the business. And now you can see SL1 Business Services in action—without scheduling a live demo or free trial.


Why an Incident Commander is crucial to ITOps

It may be counterintuitive to tackle a problem without knowing exactly what the problem is, but an incident commander often does just that. In fact Rob Schnepp—founding partner at Blackrock 3, an Alameda, California-based incident management consulting group—says identifying the root cause of an incident is typically secondary to addressing the symptoms.


Take a deep dive into Incident Intelligence

ITOps professionals know that their AI and automation goals can only be achieved with high-quality data. How can you get good-quality data? Incident Intelligence. In this on-demand session from Pandapalooza, our Group Product Manager, Orr Ganani, joined our Regional VP of Professional Services Sales, Jordan Gamble, to discuss Incident Intelligence and its benefits. Read on to learn more about Incident Intelligence from this webinar.


Top 6 Tips for Improving MTTx

In our research for the inaugural State of Availability Report, we asked 1,900 engineers about mean time to detect (MTTD) and mean time to recovery (MTTR) as two leading incident management Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) strongly associated with availability. We learned that less than 15% of respondents are tracking their MTTD. It takes twice as long to discover an issue than it does to resolve it.


Best practices for IT incident management

Today, many digital technologies in IT can operate with minimal human intervention. However, while they boost productivity and drive growth, any failure or unpredictable behavior can pose a significant challenge for the ITOps and DevOps teams. So, effective IT incident management helps minimize the impact of incidents on business operations and ensures that systems are restored as quickly as possible.


The future of AI

It’s no secret that every ITOps leader can face an ever-increasing amount of alerts. Since the dawn of digital, alerts have served an important purpose. Sometimes all those alerts can become overwhelming noise, and sorting out what is and is not a priority can become challenging. The good news is that artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) are adept at processing large data sets in real time, looking for patterns and being able to aid in decision making.


AIOps as a time, quality and customer enabler

Time is precious and not for sale. Or is it? UMB AG, a leading Swiss IT service and managed services provider, takes the opposite view. Under the company motto "Creating Time", UMB provides its customers with more time which they use for their core business instead of IT administration. A core UMB service is complete support for SAP landscapes, be it on premise, in the UMB data centers or in the cloud.


How ITOps is evolving to support brick-and-mortar organizations

To hear Ehab Tarabay explain it, the need for retailers to continue evolving their digital operations is an age-old problem.

As an avid information technology specialist with a track record of more than 20 years in the technology field, he had a unique perspective to share about the shift that’s happening in retail right now.
