Session Description
A group of industry leaders will expand the industry journey toward AIOps by presenting a framework for a common infrastructure data store. This data may be stored in traditional silos, but with adding access permission for a firewall, switch/router, Wi-Fi, cloud provider, SD-WAN, service management vendors, and more to each other’s infrastructure data. A common infrastructure data store with selected access permission will enable engineers with domain expertise to correlate this data into useful operational dashboards. IT business leaders will share use cases/problems they need their infrastructure vendors to solve or optimize. The goal of this session is to provide a platform for vendors to share infrastructure data so that AI/ML algorithms can be used to drive a range of IT automated operational dashboards that provide an end-to-end view of an application’s dependency map.

What: Mist will be providing live demos throughout the duration of the conference and expo
When: Tuesday May 7 and Wednesday, May 8 from 9:00 a.m. - 6:30 p.m. CDT
Where: Mist booth on the ONUG expo floor, Cityplace Tower, 2711, N Haskell Ave STE 250, Dallas, TX 75204
