“With exponential growth in digital services year over year, reliability doesn’t just remain essential; it’s a paramount feature of any system,” said Mehdi Daoudi, CEO and co-founder of Catchpoint. “Our report findings demonstrate the importance of SRE’s foundational role at enterprises and how practitioners are evolving their mindsets and business practices in new and exciting ways for optimized control and visibility.”

In fact, the report revealed a notable trend: shifting of responsibilities across traditional control boundaries becoming normal, creating new business opportunities for speed and innovation.

“To navigate today’s complex, dynamic business environments, SRE is imperative for success,” Daoudi continued.

  • 47% say learning from incidents (LFI) has the most room for improvement in overall incident management activities: discusses the universal business opportunity of dedicated, protected learning for companies of all sizes
  • 53% said AI will ‘make my work easier’ and [only] 4% felt AI ‘will replace them’: explores how this perspective varies by organizational rank
  • 24% of organizations have breached a contractual service level agreement in the last 12 months: recommends relationship between IT objectives and business outcomes
  • 81% of organizations have two or more types of telemetry feeding their observability frameworks and 43% have four or more: confronts the fallacy of single tools being able to provide visibility for all stacks
  • 23% of ICs declare being proud of their work was most important; whereas, in an example of rank dissension, 28% of management said being efficient was most important: highlights values and discusses year-over-year benchmarking data
