August 02, 2020

APMdigest and The Field CTO (TheFieldCTO.com) joined forces to launch the AI+ITOPS Podcast.


"Digital transformation ... and the need for IT to enable digital business outcomes, is greater than ever, and all the tools including AIOps and automation ... are critical in making the difference." Listen to the podcast

The first series of podcasts — one podcast per week for the next 11 weeks — are sponsored by New Relic One, Observability Made Simple.

The mission of the AI+ITOPS Podcast is to discuss the struggles faced by ITOps — such as digital transformation and the need to keep IT services "always on" — and explore how AI/ML, AIOps, Application Performance Management (APM), and other ITOps and DevOps technologies can help.

The AI+ITOPS Podcast is hosted by Andy Thurai of The Field CTO (TheFieldCTO.com). Thurai is an accomplished IT executive, strategist, advisor and evangelist with 25+ years of experience in executive, technical and architectural leadership positions at companies such as IBM, Intel, BMC, Nortel and Oracle; he advises many start-ups; and he is a Steering Committee Member for AIOps Exchange. He has been a keynote speaker in many major conferences, as well as host of many webcasts, podcasts and video chats. He is a regular Forbes contributor, and has written 100+ articles on emerging technology topics for publications such as Forbes, AI World, VentureBeat and Wired. Andy Thurai can be reached on Twitter at @AndyThurai, LinkedIn, or his website at www.TheFieldCTO.com.
