How fast is your IT? You need speed and adaptability to adjust as big changes in the global economy and our daily lives keep coming. Disruption is the status quo, and the “new normal” is not yet defined.
Are you prepared for what’s next? What are IT organizations saying about it all?
This spring, 2,200 IT professionals and senior IT leaders participated in a survey and shared:
The most shocking result? Only 21% of people feel like they can beat their peers and competitors at the change game.
These and other answers to the survey became a report that offers insights into which organizations are leading the race in speed and adaptability in this era of digital urgency.

Incident Management is an IT service management process intended to restore “normal” service operation as quickly as possible, while minimizing any adverse impact on business operations or the end user. To be successful, IT teams must promptly and effectively deal with all Incidents reported by users.
So why is Incident Management important? The answer is impact. The cost of downtime can add up to billions of dollars of lost revenue, cost employees productivity time and leave a negative user experience. For every hour of downtime a business experiences there is a profound impact to the business.
Having a well-defined incident management process can help reduce the cost of downtime dramatically.

You’ve likely heard the term observability being passed around for the past few years, and you might have assumed that it is just another marketing buzzword for monitoring. And you wouldn’t be alone in that thinking.
Some experts would say that “observability”, “AIOPs” and “application Performance Monitoring (APM)” are just terms used to distinguish between products on the market.
But others would argue that there’s a concrete difference between all of these terms.

Early monitoring efforts relied on specialists to scrutinize production environments for issues that might hurt performance. But as IT grew in size and 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.
Over the last several years, organizations have had to deal with exponentially more data than ever before.

Disaster Recovery (DR) has never been more important. Natural disasters such as hurricanes, wildfires, and floods are on the rise. According to the U.S. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration the total cost of last year’s natural disasters was approximately $91 billion. FEMA has stated, “the need for forward-leaning action is greater than ever before.” Adding to the need for proactive DR, is the threat of ransomware attacks which are up 300% from 2018.

Today’s applications are architectured to work on hybrid, componentized, containerized, distributed, mobile/sensor environments, and so do the networks that sustain all these applications together. Complexity, traffic volume, intolerance to performance degradation and inefficiency will only increase, demanding real-time and holistic monitoring.
Securing containerized applications is quite a bit more challenging than securing traditional monolithic applications. The use of open-source components in code, the microservices within containers, and the containers themselves, all need to be secure to ensure vulnerabilities do not make their way into the deployed application. This guide to container security looks at the issue from many sides through numerous articles, and also offers look at some of the providers of security software.
