In recent times, Operations Teams have been getting overwhelmed by the volumes of data that they have to manually process, whether that is log data, file data, transaction log data, metrics coming into the system and so on. They have always had large volumes of data coming into their systems, but these ‘Big Data’ volumes have seen very rapid growth.
All of this data, which needs to be stored on the backend / mainframe system, is that which forms the system of records where critical business transactions reside. This means that very high quality of service is required to ensure that the data is kept secure and available 24/7.
This rapid growth of ‘Big Data’ emanates from the systems of engagement, which in today’s world are predominantly mobile devices. These allow the user to get access to things like bank accounts and be able to do transactions at any time of the day. To address this situation, what is needed is a set of tools built to enhance existing service management capabilities.
The solution lies in the latest analytics tools to work hand in hand with the most recent mainframe technologies. Analytics is already the proven way to get ahead of competitors and these new tools allow businesses to become more efficient, save time and undertake predictive analysis to avoid outages.
IBM has a complete solution around analytics for Operations Teams and using these alongside System z ensures readiness for being able to handle the new technologies, such as Cloud and Mobile and the Big Data phenomenon.
This white paper is based on a webcast presentation made to the Tivoli User Community entitled: ‘Exploit New Analytics to Monitor and Manage Technologies like Big Data Mobile for System Z’
The presentation, made by Paul Smith, System Z Architect and Senior Technical staff member with IBM, discussed how analytics, including System z, help successfully integrate systems of engagement with backend systems of record. It also included looking at how analytics can improve visibility and assist in understanding the impact of adding new technologies to System z.
