Advanced Operations Analytics (AOA) are changing IT business decision making and blends formerly separate departments. Read More

We recently partnered with Enterprise Management Associates (EMA) to research how Advanced Operations Analytics (AOA) are impacting IT professionals. EMA’s report, The Many Faces of Advanced Operations Analytics, surveyed IT professionals about their experience with AOA, adoption levels, and use cases.

We found some interesting nuggets as a part of the research:

  • “Advanced Operations Analytics” is indeed transforming the world of IT; extremely successful AOA respondents are reporting up to 20x improvement in hybrid cloud adoption
  • Overarching capabilities of data assimilation and analysis boost efficiency of IT in a wide variety of use cases that include significant business impact

Big data clearly plays a vital role in IT decision-making, however, the report highlighted important use cases including optimizing service performance, minimizing security issues, managing change, optimizing capacity across the extended enterprise, and ultimately governing IT more effectively as a business in support of the business it serves.

However, the report revealed that the most effective AOA investments are blending these formerly separate areas. On average, respondents reported five use cases for each AOA deployment, with some reporting 10 or more. Advanced Operations Analytics solutions were supporting roles across both IT and the business, including roles related to business planning and online operations. There was particularly strong interest in AOA for DevOps and cloud, with two-thirds of respondents planning to support DevOps with AOA. In fact, those who were ‘extremely successful’ in AOA were 20 times more likely to be ‘very successful’ in their hybrid cloud adoptions than those who were only ‘moderately successful’ or less in AOA.
