Five ways ChatGPT can augment IT operations, without reinventing the wheel
IT operations (ITOps) teams are finding it increasingly difficult to keep up with the complexity of their technology environments as they continue to grow. Today, the average large enterprise’s tech stack comprises of no less than 187 different applications. As organizations have become more reliant on these applications to support customer experiences and keep revenue flowing, ITOps teams face growing pressure to keep them running smoothly. They need to respond instantly to possible security incidents or service outages before they impact the business, support internal users effectively, and -- where time permits -- support development teams in their efforts to deliver innovation projects. Given the sheer breadth of responsibilities ITOps teams face, it’s no surprise that burnout has become commonplace.
To overcome these challenges and alleviate some of the pressure on ITOps teams, organizations are turning to artificial intelligence (AI) and automation. These capabilities can help by reducing manual workloads and increasing operational efficiency, which in turn boost job satisfaction and often leads to better customer experiences. Organizations have turned to many approaches and tools to drive this automation over the years, but in recent weeks it is ChatGPT, a sophisticated large language model, which has been capturing their attention. Cutting through all the hype, it’s possible to identify clear, practical upsides for businesses that implement ChatGPT in their IT operations.
