Fannie Mae: How AI and ML are Changing the Enterprise Monitoring Landscape
Jay Rudrachar, Fannie Mae

Jay Rudrachar, Fannie Mae’s director of enterprise monitoring, analytics and reporting, will share how the giant mortgage provider has leveraged AI and ML, in particular in Moogsoft AIOps, to improve IT Ops performance and break down data and toolset silos. Now, the organization’s multiple IT Ops teams have a single pane of glass view that gives them a comprehensive, holistic view into that’s going on in every area. This has yielded significant benefits for incident detection and resolution, and consequently for system uptime and reliability.

Moogsoft Science and Roadmap
Dr. Robert Harper, Moogsoft

In this session, Dr. Robert Harper, Moogsoft’s Chief Science Officer & VP of Engineering for Advanced Algorithms, will explain how our algorithmic suite, and algorithmic and AI techniques offer our customers the true benefits of AIOps. By delivering deep contextual insights, Moogsoft AIOps enables IT Ops and DevOps teams to solve IT problems faster than products that rely on rules-based approaches. And to show we’re not resting on our laurels, he’ll offer a sneak peek at upcoming features and future plans for our research program.

Ubisoft’s AIOps Journey
Maxime Brodeur, Ubisoft

The speakers will describe the entire process, started when the CIO called for a global, next-gen monitoring platform.

The Market Context for AIOps
Will Cappelli, Moogsoft

Commercial AIOps Platforms compete with six software submarkets that roughly and conceptually align with the five dimensions of AIOps. Given the current size and promised growth of AIOps, it is not surprising that vendors dominating these submarkets will often attempt to extend their offerings with AIOps-like features. As a result, there can be confusion at the borders. This talk provides a quick review of these six submarkets to demarcate them clearly from AIOps.

4:15 PM – 5:00 PM
Customer Panel: AIOps Adoption and Lessons Learned from the Real World Deployments

In this roundtable discussion, Moogsoft customers, including Fannie Mae, KeyBank, First Data and Ubisoft, will offer real-world testimonials on their use of AIOps. You’ll learn how they’re helping their organizations thrive by preventing IT outages and providing continuous digital services. Don’t pass up this chance to hear how AIOps has allowed them to streamline IT Ops workflows, accurately detect anomalies, flag potential problems, and shrink repair times.
