  • A breakdown on the anatomy of IT services — in the cloud and on premises
  • The evolution from monitoring to SDITO
  • The best way to ensure IT service delivery in a hybrid IT environment
  • A customer case study where 97 percent of infrastructure was transitioned to the cloud without disruption

"Hybrid IT environments offer the best of cloud and on-premises worlds but also come with nontrivial new management challenges," Fitz said. "I love my grandmother, but I'm pretty frank in telling her she doesn't understand how dramatically IT problems have changed over the years. Legacy monitoring tools simply weren’t built for these environments, and the largest companies in the world have learned that to maintain the highest levels of service in these environments, they must modernize from old-school monitoring to Software-Defined IT Operations."

Zenoss Software-Defined IT Operations (SDITO)

Most IT operations and DevOps professionals are fighting a losing battle when it comes to reliably and cost-effectively managing today's IT environments. This is due to the exploding complexity, scale and rates of change that are required in the digital transformations companies are undergoing for modern business survival. The introduction of these new technology paradigms in modern IT environments not only introduce management headaches, they introduce tremendous business risk.

Zenoss SDITO is enabling customers to predict and eliminate IT outages, ensuring consistent IT service delivery across cloud and on-premises environments. Zenoss helps 5,600 customers, including HBO, Cisco, Disney, Accenture and the U.S. Air Force, keep their businesses running without disruption.
