Like all cloud computing situations, it’s helpful to break down the core components of a working cloudops solution, such as AIops. Also, to define what the technology needs to do and the value it brings to the table. To this end I picked out six capabilities a cloudops tool should offer:
Observe and gather data from any number of systems that are needed to find patterns to further analyze and act on. This has a few components to it, including the ability to leverage connectors and/or agents to communicate with the system under management, as well as to get the data back to some type of centralized cloudops system in a reliable way.
