Proactively Stabilizing Key Business Process for Hybrid Cloud

Key business processes run by enterprise applications go hand-in-hand with the customer experience and brand reputation more than ever. Each person using an application, whether that be an employee or customer, has a small but important digital journey to take.

The CX challenge: as these apps support more and more of the business's revenue, underneath is a complex mixed infrastructure cloud, multiple platforms (e.g. AWS, Azure, GCP), on-prem, legacy tech, and 3rd party data. The cloud & infrastructure challenge: when considering WHY organizations are using mullti-cloud for applications, lifting and shifting 100% of the application and day isn't always immediately practical. It can be expensive, time-consuming, and error-prone. So, many teams tackle these infrastructure modernization efforts by moving the broken processes first. Or, they're building net-new applications in the cloud.

The solution: By using data monitoring platforms like Splunk, once teams have the basic, standardized visibility in place, they are freed-up to proactively monitor a hybrid cloud environment's key business data. During the presentation, you will learn how to: · Why organizations MUST nail the cloud monitoring basics first when adopting tools for infrastructure + cloud monitoring and performance analytics · Once the basics are in place, how Machine-Learning based Detection Mechanisms can be used · Tracking transfers and changes to sensitive data · Monitor critical KPIs and visualizing them, then using ML to keep the supporting business processes running · Use standardized approaches for security, fraud, system health, and operations · Use Splunk to pull in cloud and on-prem ERP business data (e.g. SAP ERP) to enrich, understand and correlate other data streams
