The need to innovate rapidly in a fully digital economy has never been more urgent. DevOps practitioners, now central to building and running new and better digital products every day, rely on observability data to deliver faster remediation of incidents in production, and learning opportunities for constantly developing new customer value. AI helps them get there faster. This talk will show how, as we enter 2021, we’ll see artificial intelligence begin to automate away the toil of operations, bringing the future of DevOps back to spending more time developing. At the same time, a growing mentality of Ops-led development will instill the practice of observability throughout the entire DevOps cycle to continuously learn and build for an increased level of reliability. Attendees will learn the ways intelligent observability methods will drive better remote work collaboration between team members and across teams, and fuel understanding of the why behind the what — allowing DevOps and SRE teams to make stronger data-informed decisions for the business to thrive in 2021 and beyond.
