Further, these applications are poised to comprise AI triggering alerts for the quick resolution of issues before rendering of negative impacts to these activities or transactions. This could also assist in the elimination of requirements for IT staff for the manual monitoring and management of applications, in turn freeing these employees for instead concentrating on higher value work and innovation.

This acquisition is reportedly set to support IBM in assisting companies in overcoming the challenge of managing application performance across numerous teams, with an average number of 2 to 15 clouds.
