Integrating with IBM Cloud Pak for Watson AIOps

Learn how to integrate IBM® Netcool® Operations Insight® with IBM Cloud Pak for Watson™ AIOps.

In this scenario, IBM Cloud Pak for Watson AIOps and Netcool Operations Insight on-premises are both installed, and are connected by the Netcool and Impact connectors. The connectors enable a uni-directional flow of events and policies from Netcool Operations Insight to IBM Cloud Pak for Watson AIOps. The Netcool Operations Insight deployment is an on-premises deployment.
Note: Netcool probes are still supported in an IBM Cloud Pak for Watson AIOps only deployment without Netcool Operations Insight. For more information, see Probes and probe integrations external icon in the Netcool/OMNIbus Integrations documentation.

To integrate Netcool Operations Insight with IBM Cloud Pak for Watson AIOps, use the Netcool and Impact connectors. For more information, see Creating Netcool connections and Creating IBM Tivoli Netcool/Impact connections.
