SRE teams are responsible for everything from system design to deployment to monitoring. They use automation tools to maintain uptime and performance levels while reducing costs and manual labor. SRE teams also focus on stability by setting up systems in such a way that they are resilient in the face of failure or change.
The goal of SRE is not only to keep applications running but also to build systems in such a way that they can quickly recover from errors or outages without significant downtime.
SRE improves the availability, performance and scalability of systems and services through automation, reducing costs and downtime. SRE also encourages better collaboration between teams, leading to increased robustness, incident handling and performance, providing a better user experience.
Improve customer experience
Namely finding qualified engineers who understand the nuances of SRE as well as developing an effective process for managing changes across multiple environments without causing disruption or downtime. Additionally, if not done properly SRE can lead to increased complexity which could further complicate an organization's IT environment rather than simplifying it as intended.

Potential for increased complexity
Adopting SRE requires careful planning and execution in order to reap its many benefits while avoiding potential pitfalls like complexity or security issues caused by poor implementation strategies or lack of experienced engineers on staff.
Companies should begin by assessing their current infrastructure needs as well as their long-term goals then use that information to create a roadmap outlining steps required for successful adoption of SRE best practices over time.
With careful planning and execution companies can enjoy all the benefits offered by this powerful methodology while minimizing any potential risks associated with its implementation along the way.
