Session III: Traditional monitoring is dead. The new enterprise cloud requires software intelligence.

Enterprise cloud is the platform for digital transformation. However, the aspects of cloud that make it ideal for driving transformation – the agility, dynamic nature, scalability, and flexibility – make it more complex to manage and monitor. The old approaches will no longer work. A fundamentally new approach is required, with automation and AI at the core. In this session, learn about a new generation of monitoring, aka software intelligence, designed to meet the needs of the new enterprise cloud.
