Deconstructing AIOps: Is it even real?

This essay explores AIOps and investigates if machine intelligence applies to IT operations (ITOps). I will dive into objection handling around artificial intelligence (AI) in pop culture and address the limitations around data sets and implicit bias coded into machines. Then, I will delve into what this means for ITOps and the ways AI-based parsing utilities can help operators and developers alike. How does Sumo Logic enable anomaly detection and identify threats?
