Abstract: 

Humans are slow, unreliable and hard to train. Azure has saved many millions of downtime minutes by using a knowledgeable and intelligent Bot. This Bot enhances and automates impact assessment, mitigation and problem management from your incident management.

You will learn about how to effectively run your outages and the strategy that we used to ensure that our solution was what our users wanted and would in fact lead to the immense time and cost savings that we predicted. We will share our guiding principles and lessons learned along the way.
