BigPanda: Delivering Autonomous Operations to the most complex enterprises

When it comes to IT operations, the industry enterprises have been trying to automate it for years now. However, when they try to bring out automation, they rely on dependency and rules models. All of these models are programmed by hand which results in slow time to value, an inability to keep updated with rapid changes, and also high costs.

When Assaf Resnick and Elik Eizenberg faced IT operations running on ruled-driven solutions, they were very frustrated. Combined with the manual process, the entire operation would take a long time to finally come through. They decided to bring out a new path and created BigPanda a couple of years ago in 2012. They knew that machine learning would change the picture and help improve things.

They came up with a simple idea then (it can be considered simple even today!). “Use Machine Learning to scale up the ability of human beings to manage the tsunami of IT alerts and data coming out the data center, help IT deliver a superior level of digital service and application performance, and in the process, dramatically accelerate innovation,” the BigPanda website informs us.

Simple, yet powerful

The idea that the founder duo thought of was simple, yet powerful. Let’s take for instance- a constantly transforming and evolving datacenter like DevOps, micro-services, cloud, etc. In this scenario, many enterprise IT professionals end up being frustrated with environments that move at an unprecedented scale, complexity and velocity. Business enterprises require a new generation of automation that’s enabled with machine learning. This will help them to keep their business running and transform them into an accelerator in the industry. That’s possible when IT operations are equipped with machine learning.

Today, most of the IT operations are fighting a losing battle. Everyone in an organization is relying on the operation team to ensure the smooth running of applications 24 X7 X 365. However, this isn’t so easy. The complexity of the infrastructure keeps increasing and the operations team is in a constant battle of services being down, SLAs violated, and frustrated customers.

This vicious cycle keeps happening, especially inside large complex enterprises. In the end, it could take a toll on new innovation and transformations inside the firm. It doesn’t have to be this way and BigPanda is here to help you with Autonomous Operations for your firm. With the foundation of BigPanda in 2012, the company is successfully bringing this idea of Autonomous Operations to some of the most complex and biggest enterprises in the world. In fact, BigPanda is the first provider of Autonomous Operations solutions when it comes to enabling IT operations for complex and large enterprises. The company mission “is to automate and scale the ability of IT Operations to meet the demands of digital transformation.”
