“Monitoring Applications At Scale In The Cloud”

Cloud expanded options and triggered the Jevon’s paradox. This goes into the ‘thundering herd’ issue that comes with server less computing and an approach to solve the cloud jigsaw puzzle.

Key points of discussion: The Complicated Cloud Conundrum; APM to the Rescue; Don’t Take My Word For It. (Co-presented with Casper Pierterse, Dimension Data)

AIOPs – the Life Preserver for ITOps – PSOGEN-1014

Let’s face it – coping with network event storms, guessing warning threshold settings for infrastructure, and using command line skills for 2am root cause analysis is inefficient and soul-crushing. Multi-cloud and hyperconverged infrastructures generate too many metrics for humans to comprehend, and ITOps needs augmentation from AI/ML just to survive. Enterprises are urgently seeking AIOps to automate infrastructure drudgery. This session gives use cases and describe Cisco’s vision for AppDynamics as the Central Nervous System for the enterprise.

What Network Architects Need to Know About the Evolving Software Lifecycle (SDLC) – PSOGEN-1013

As our applications transform to cloud-native-first architectures, policy replaces configuration files to define infrastructure at all layers; networking, compute, storage, and of course application. Developers now have almost unlimited choices in how to solve their architecture, agility and scale challenges using the software defined infrastructure that powers our cloud-native world. Prescriptive topologies for networks are too rigid to support the needed agile iterations of today’s application. The software development lifecycle (SDLC) evolved to support multiple iterations for innovation and has some lessons for all of us. This session describes SDLC evolutions to help network and infrastructure experts as they strive to connect business value to applications to infrastructure while constructing the networks of the future.

Prove It’s NOT the Network – DEVNET-1237

DevNet-1237 Cisco Live 2019 CLUS19 Marco Speaking – Version 2

In today’s world, your applications are your business. For networking and infrastructure teams, keeping up with the application landscape in the multi-cloud world is more challenging than ever before. This session provides an overview of how AppDynamics can help you: Detect and remediate issues before they impact customers; Understand how network policies and infrastructure configurations impact the applications running on them; Ensure application availability and performance across public, private and hybrid cloud environments.

“AIOps as the Co-Pilot to DevOps”

Survive the fog of system development! Developers’ lives have gotten more complex in the last decade. There is too much to learn and understand now, and you need a co-pilot. Let AIOps be that co-pilot.

Key points of discussion: Levelset for Machine Learning (ML) today; Flying planes vs DevOps; Defining AIOps; AI/ML making DevOps survivable; A guide for assessing where to automate. (Co-presented with Ravi Lachhman)

20190205 Premier Group Photo 2“AIOps – How We Will Survive DevOps”

DevOps sees development embrace the world of operations. Marco Coulter’s own move from operations to leading development teams across four countries brought a realization. Guessing threshold settings, coping with event storms, and using command line skills for root cause analysis at 2am was inefficient and soul-crushing.
