Big Data analytics for IT 'outage avoidance', join the Open Beta May 14th
Today (May 14th) IBM launches an Open Beta for 'Tivoli Analytics for Service Performance', or TASP; a new behavioral learning Big Data analytic capability that helps IT operations teams avoid outages.
Detect problems before they become business or service impacting
TASP is a state-of-the-art analytic solution for detecting emerging problems before they impact services or interrupt business. Built on a foundation of the industry’s most powerful and scalable streaming analytic engine InfoSphere Streams, it processes performance and metric data in real-time from the existing IT monitoring and performance management solutions. Applying advanced analytics technologies which mathematically discover complex relationships between metrics and learns the normal operational behavior of IT and network environments. Based on this learned behavior, it is able to detect anomalies indicative of faults and provides early problem detection, prior to a service disruption.
- Maximizes early detection of service and application issues and spots problems while they are emerging to avoid business impacting service disruptions and outages.
- Learns the normal operational behavior of dynamic infrastructures, such as a cloud, and identifies problems before you know to look for them—catches problems the first time they happen.
- Analyses performance and monitoring data across silos, domains and vendors. Provides a single analytic solution for complete heterogeneous monitoring infrastructures.
We invite you to try the solution for yourself with the Open Beta. You do not need to be an IBM customer – just sign up for a 'My IBM account' here (upper right corner).
After you have created an account you can find the download and instructions here.
Part of IBM's Cloud & Smarter Infrastructure analytics family.
Driven by the dynamic nature of cloud, and the explosion of structured, unstructured, network and metric data, the analytics suite provides a range of analytics for IT application and operations management functions that span workload optimization, performance management, outage avoidance, diagnostics and insight.
The family offers a wide range of analytics techniques ranging from behavioral learning, to pattern identification based on best practices, to capacity planning expert systems fed on usage data and budget requirements. Data can be aggregated from structured and unstructured content, metrics, and events for rapid analysis.
The combination of these techniques provides insight, advice and actions to Application Owners, Operations, Subject Matter Experts, Engineers and Planners, that address business challenges that were previously beyond the reach of traditional tools and techniques.
Unmatched strength: IBM Big Data platform and Research.
IBM Big Data
The Cloud & Smarter Infrastructure analytic family is underpinned by the industry’s most powerful, scalable Big Data platforms.
But Big data is more than simply a matter of size; it is an opportunity to find insights in new and emerging types of data and content, to make your business more agile, and to answer questions that were previously considered beyond your reach. Until now, there was no practical way to harvest this opportunity. Today, IBM’s platform for big data uses state of the art technologies including patented advanced analytics to open the door to a world of possibilities.
Focused on innovations for more than a century, the organization famous for beating Chess Masters and Jeopardy contestants, and more recently, creating the worlds smallest movies from atoms. IBM has topped the annual patent recipient list for 20 consecutive years. From 1993-2012, IBM inventors received nearly 67,000 U.S. patents, and in 2012 alone, received a record 6,478 patents
These strengths and vision show IBM’s long-term, strategic commitment to innovation and demonstrate the patience to allow scientific discovery to find its way into the solving problems currently beyond existing tools and techniques.
