How to Help Teams Create Optimal Infrastructure for Availability

Teams are locked into a cycle of suffering characterized by the feeling that they are sprinting just to stay still. This morale and productivity-destroying state is caused by an inability to find time to save time. Our new research, The State of Availability Report 2022, discovered that teams know what they want to do—harness cloud and DevOps practices and tools to advance digital transformation—but something’s getting in the way.


Improving Incident Management with Automation

Incident management is your organization’s first line of defense. When incidents occur, internal teams must be ready to respond quickly. While incidents can happen anytime, it’s unrealistic to expect incident managers to be prepared to perform manual root cause analysis. Manually monitoring and analyzing applications on multiple servers is extremely difficult, which is why human reaction times have traditionally limited the speed of incident management.

Digital technology disruptions are typical (and even expected) at the workplace, but it doesn’t have to be chaotic, with teams rushing around to extinguish the metaphoric fire.

Every second counts when IT teams are called upon to resolve business impacting issues. In modern enterprises, poor communication, fragmented toolchains and spiralling IT complexity can conspire to slow down incident response, putting service availability and ultimately customer satisfaction in peril.

Just Maintaining Availability? Try Building Stability

Today’s customers see availability as a given. What do they really want? Bigger, better technology with new features and faster platforms. But, according to our recently released Moogsoft State of Availability Report, teams burn their time, money and energy on incident management. In fact, engineers overwhelmingly report that incident management takes up most of their time.
