Event Diary: Cloud Expo Europe
Lack of visibility in to the IT infrastructure, battles with legacy IT and tool sprawl continue to be business problems that we encountered the most during the Expo. There was one conversation where the delegate was struggling to obtain senior executive buy-in on why IT Monitoring was important, he wanted the single pane of glass view but the executives were happy to continue with disparate systems. IT complexity and silos continue to drive tool sprawl, too many systems and different IT teams doing their own thing. No centralized monitoring is causing organizations headaches when it comes to driving innovation, IT change and digital transformation.
In and amongst the conversations on the Opsview stand, we had several press briefings and a live stream on Disruptive LIVE - you can watch the video here. We’re the ones in the purple polo shirts! Talking of purple, we even had an attendee come to our stand to chat to us because his daughter’s favorite color was purple. You certainly couldn’t miss the purple army!
Lots of talk across the Expo on AIOPs. My view on this is you can’t even begin to start focusing on AIOPs until you fix the lack of visibility in the IT infrastructure and to do this you need to start with sorting the legacy problem and tool sprawl.
