Posted By Raquel Winkler, Thursday, June 11, 2020
Updated: Tuesday, June 9, 2020
Services, applications and processes are more connected than ever through digital transformation.

Yet, business innovation and operational excellence compete for resources with the continuous improvements around employee and customer experience, all in light of a growing skill gap. Your ability to automate IT services qualifies your team to offer and manage digital services for your business teams.

Buyer’s Guide to Enterprise Service Management Products

Posted By Raquel Winkler, Thursday, June 11, 2020
Updated: Tuesday, June 9, 2020

Digital Strategist Susan Salgy helps you choose the tools that are right for your organization.

For most organizations, the benefits of ESM make perfect sense. But when teams begin thinking about adoption, two issues often arise that stall their progress:

  1. How do you choose suitable projects that will deliver meaningful value quickly and succeed within your organizational culture?
  2. How do you find the ESM products that will work best for your projects, in your environment?

This guide addresses those two issues. It provides an overview of ESM’s value proposition and explains the important market trends to consider as you weigh your ESM options. It steps you through seven key considerations, including executive sponsorship, organizational culture, and process readiness, that will help you find the kinds of projects and products that are most likely to help you deliver a win, given your organization’s current state of ESM maturity. Finally, it offers specific recommendations about what you should ask in your request for proposal (RFP) to ensure that the ESM tool vendors you evaluate will supply the information you need to make a smart decision.

Why Automated AIOps Is Better Than AIOps- and How to Get There

Posted By Megan Click, Thursday, May 14, 2020
Updated: Tuesday, May 12, 2020
Early monitoring efforts relied on specialists to scrutinize production environments for issues that might hurt performance. But as IT grew in complexity, humans struggled to keep up. Growing out of that struggle, AIOps enabled systems to independently spot anomalies and issue alerts. Adding automation takes AIOps to a whole new level - introducing enhanced options for remediating incidents, handling repetitive tasks, and removing human error. Listen as Micro Focus and ITOps Times discuss how to transition your current monitoring solutions to automated AIOps.
