July 16. 2021
Service Reliability

Financial institutions use business applications to provide services to their users. They have to continuously monitor the performance of business applications to enhance service reliability. During peak business time, the number of impactful incident increase that downgrades the performance of business applications. IT experts have to spend more time addressing the incidents one by one. Financial institutions can use an AI-based platform for maintaining business continuity and service reliability. Let us know how ZIF enhances services reliability for financial institutions via AIOps.

What is service reliability?

Financial institutions are undergoing digital transformation quickly. For providing a digital user experience, financial institutions use software systems, applications, etc. The business applications need to perform continuously according to their specifications. If the performance gets deteriorated, business applications may experience downtime. It will have a direct effect on the ROI (Return on Investment).

Service reliability ensures that all the business applications or software systems are error-free. It ensures the continuous performance of IT systems within any financial institution. Business applications should live up to their expectations without any technical error. Financial institutions that have better service reliability also have larger uptime. Service reliability is usually expressed in percentage by IT experts.  

What is AIOps?

AIOps (Artificial Intelligence for IT Operations) is used for automating and enhancing IT processes. AIOps uses the mixture of AI and ML algorithms to induce automation in IT processes. In this competitive era, AIOps can help a business optimize its IT infrastructure. IT strategies can be deployed at a large scale using AIOps.

The use of AI in IT operations can reduce the toll on IT experts as they don’t have to work overtime. Any issues with the IT infrastructure can be addresses in real-time using AI. AIOps platforms have gained popularity in recent times due to the challenges posed by the COVID pandemic. Financial institutions can also use an AIOps platform for better DEM (Digital Experience Monitoring).

What is ZIF?

ZIF (Zero Incident Framework) is an AIOps platform launched by GAVS Technologies. The goal of ZIF is to lead organizations towards a zero-incidence scenario. Any incidents within the IT infrastructure can be solved in real-time via ZIF. ZIF is more than just an ordinary TechOps platform. It can help financial institutions to monitor the performance of business applications as well as automate incidence reporting.
