SRE is an approach that many organisations find attractive and ideal. In particular, for organisations bound by regulatory obligations regarding the use of technology in service delivery, there are valuable insights to be gained to better safeguard organisations from operational and financial risks. In this talk, we will share how we successfully enable SRE Practices of conducting Root Cause Analysis, Chaos Testing, and Trend Analysis in line with the regulatory expectations. In the region, we were one of the pioneers in the financial industry to adopt SRE.
