In order to overcome these challenges, fragmented, traditional IT organizations must transcend silo boundaries and streamline efforts to collaboratively manage complete services from the customers’ perspective. In other words, they must embrace Agile Operations.
By definition, Agile Operations supports Bimodal IT. In mode one, it specializes in the deployment, operations and ongoing support of digital services and applications created in agile development and continuous delivery environments.
In mode two, it emphasizes collaboration with development and test teams by creating an agile feedback loop that shares unified monitoring of the end-user experience and the underlying service-delivery infrastructure.
When deployed within a DevOps framework, Agile Operations can help you:
• Quickly pinpoint and resolve performance issues from mobile to mainframe systems—and automatically incorporate
this data back into development and testing for increased application quality
• Unify application and infrastructure performance monitoring into a single view and prioritize the actions that will most benefit the customer experience, improving overall release velocity
• Take a more proactive approach to IT monitoring, reduce the impact of technical debt and adapt quickly to ever-changing business goals
As applications are built on newer microservice architectures designed for the cloud, deep visibility is becoming increasingly important. This is especially true in big data architectures where trillions of unique performance metrics occur every month.
These elastic environments create two problems: you have to monitor a lot more and what you monitor frequently changes. Solutions that don’t scale can’t cope in this brave new world. They fail to address the needs we have now and the needs we’re going to have in the future as sprawl and complexity only worsens.
Among the millions of bytes of data that can be monitored, you want the most important, action-oriented information to bubble to the top, so that you can be responsive to customer concerns. And when an application evolves, you want a monitoring solution that can keep pace.
This is what Agile Operations delivers. Monitoring must automatically expand and contract with your environment, collecting both high-level and detailed data and serving that data up to the appropriate expert at hand. It’s a flexible approach, so as your IT organization grows, so does your monitoring capabilities. The right agile solution will allow you to scale effortlessly and continuously monitor how business critical applications and global networks are performing for end users.
