AIOps Boot Camp

Equip you and your teams with the skills and knowledge needed to integrate AIOps into your organization.

AIOps is the key to effective digital transformation. The industry analyst company Gartner puts it boldly in its market guide for AIOps platforms: “There is no future of IT operations that does not include AIOps. This is due to the rapid growth in data volumes and pace of change (exemplified by rate of application delivery and event-driven business models) that cannot wait on humans to derive insights.” 

AIOps can affect all areas of your organization. Although it's commonly associated with IT operations management (ITOM) and IT service management, it's intended to affect all digitally enabled business processes. An AIOps specialist should work across business units to align IT and AIOps with business outcomes. For example, an AIOps specialist would work with applications development, IT infrastructure, and accounting to build an automated collections app. 

This course is designed to give you a comprehensive understanding of how to integrate AIOps into your organization.
