IT operations analytics – ITOA

Use cognitive analytics to stop costly outages before they start

Explore the ITOA head-to-toe solution

What is ITOA, and how can it help you?

IT operations analytics involves collecting IT data from different sources, examining that data in a broader context, and proactively identifying problems in advance of their occurrence. With the right ITOA solution, you can detect patterns early to predict issues before they arise.

Extract insight from key operational data types, such as log files, performance metrics, events and trouble tickets, so you can:

  • Proactively avoid outages.
  • Achieve faster mean time to repair (MTTR).
  • Realize cost savings through greater operational efficiency.

With ITOA, turn terabytes of big data from your IT operations into relevant and actionable insights for quicker problem solving and better service.

Why ITOA from IBM?

IT operations analytics offerings from IBM — together with IBM Watson® — continuously learn, anticipate and adjust, and recommend action unlike virtually any other ITOA solution in the marketplace.

Continuously learn

Machine learning capabilities of ITOA solutions from IBM can enable you to establish and maintain thresholds across your IT applications and resources.
