IBM, IBM Cloud and the IBM Garage are proud to announce the release of two IBM architecture field guides.

These field guides are handy introductions to applying IBM’s agile service management operations methodology to your organization and streamlining your processes. The first guide is an overall view of of the domain of modern reliability operations and the second concentrates on the benefits of artificial intelligence (AI) to help supercharge your work.

IBM Cloud Service Management and Operations (CSMO) Field Guide

The 2nd Edition of the IBM Cloud Service Management and Operations (CSMO) Field Guide documents our approach to designing, implementing and continuously improving the operations management processes you use in your enterprise. Cloud service management and operations is organized into personas who do the work, processes that define what work is needed/how it is performed and tools to enable and support these activities. 

Cloud Service Management and Operations is the synergy of many disciplines, ranging from development on the left to modern operational practices on the right, with DevSecOps and Site Reliability Engineering (SRE) bridging them all.

The Field Guide provides an easy-to-read introduction to the domain of Cloud Service Management and Operations. It shows IBM’s unique approach to the topic and briefly discusses topics like SRE, AIOps, ChatOps, Build-to-Manage, the relevance of ITIL today and many more.

IBM AI Operations (AIOps) Field Guide

The all new IBM AI Operations (AIOps) Field Guide documents our approach to the infusion of artificial intelligence into existing operational processes, including incident, problem and change management. With AIOps providing operational efficiencies (e.g., predictive alerts and outage avoidance), you can easily improve efficiency, reduce cost and maintain the resiliency and security you need to drive meaningful innovation. 

The Field Guide provides an easy-to-read introduction to the domain of AI Operations. It shows IBM’s unique approach to the topic and briefly discusses topics like the AIOps adoption journey, types of data analysis, SRE, automation and many more.

IBM Hybrid Cloud Mesh and Red Hat Service Interconnect: A new era of app-centric connectivity 

2 min read - To meet customer demands, applications are expected to be performing at their best at all times. Simultaneously, applications need to be flexible and cost effective, and therefore supported by an underlying infrastructure that is equally reliant, performant and secure as the applications themselves.   Easier said than done. According to EMA's 2024 Network Management Megatrends report only 42% of responding IT professionals would rate their network operations as successful.   In this era of hyper-distributed infrastructure where our users, apps, and data…

IBM named a Leader in Gartner Magic Quadrant for SIEM, for the 14th consecutive time

3 min read - Security operations is getting more complex and inefficient with too many tools, too much data and simply too much to do. According to a study done by IBM, SOC team members are only able to handle half of the alerts that they should be reviewing in a typical workday. This potentially leads to missing the important alerts that are critical to an organization's security. Thus, choosing the right SIEM solution can be transformative for security teams, helping them manage alerts…

IBM and MuleSoft expand global relationship to accelerate modernization on IBM Power 

2 min read - As companies undergo digital transformation, they rely on APIs as the backbone for providing new services and customer experiences. While APIs can simplify application development and deliver integrated solutions, IT shops must have a robust solution to effectively manage and govern them to ensure that response times and costs are kept low for all applications. Many customers use Salesforce’s MuleSoft, named a leader by Gartner® in full lifecycle API management for seven consecutive times, to manage and secure APIs across…
