I would like to see more integrations. It is rather difficult to install the enterprise systems with the agents.

Knowing what I want to improve in the product is a question I will be able to better answer in about six months time when I have experienced more of what the product can do. At the moment I think we are still getting ourselves familiar with the product and we are not close to using it to the full potential. It will take between twelve or eighteen months or so of using the product before we can really claim that we are actually experienced in the field of AIOps (Artificial Intelligence for IT Operations) and applying that type of solution confidently. So far, I would love to see more artificial intelligence from the product — or maybe just call it analytics capabilities. Something that allows me to apply my own models on data. It should be easier to build out my own models in the application. I don't think that is included in the offering currently. So improving the analytical capability to be more predictive, intelligent and descriptive would be a benefit. Maybe a means to copy-paste so that I could attach my own models. But I'm not sure if the application already does that. Once I know what to do to add the customizations or applications in the monitoring, I will know better what issues I actually have and request to see in future releases. This type of thing can help create a knowledge database against other functionality so you could start executing and do even better in correcting situations. So that would be an extremely powerful opportunity with an open-source application and evaluations. I don't know the best way to implement it. It might be to a true open-source interface to develop your own ways of inserting intelligence or analytical models. Then our thoughts could be exchanged between different companies, share, revise and test other solutions. That way things would behave like true open-source. Moogsoft would be the platform but having customers building solutions on their own allows them to propose solutions to the biggest issues. It is a potential pain point where companies might otherwise become disgruntled. Disgruntled customers are something which in the last 34 years has been a problem for IT. We have the opportunity to have it addressed in a more effective way. If we can hook up something like Ansible also through an application like Moogsoft to automate standard issues, you know exactly what you need to do. That would be extremely powerful and I think would give Moogsoft its next leg up in the industry. Because of the lack of experience with the product, I'm not exactly sure how much of that it can already do. But that's something that I personally would like looking to and discovering over the next 6-12 months.

Some additional API interfacing would be great to enable getting the data out of AIOps programmatically.
