In terms of system management and information technology advanced analytics is a method or approach to analyse, retrieve and report the data for the IT operation. The system can be applied to analyse data and apply them to large database and produce the insight of the business. It can be finely used by the management to reduce cost and increase the revenue for the business. It is a form of technology that is mostly used for discovering complex patters in the high volume of noisy IT system and gigantic amount of performance data.
It is use of mathematics, algorithms and other related innovation to get meaningful information out of the raw data that is collected by the management and monitoring technologies.
This advanced analytics software is being put to number of uses in relation to IT operation. The means in which the intelligent system can be applied while at work are:
Root cause analysis: The structure, model and the patterns on which the IT system works can be used to analyse the previously unknown and fine grained causes to overall system behaviour.
Control over service availabilities and performance: It helps in predicting the state of the system in future and also the impact of the same.
Assignment of the problems: It helps in finding the ways in which problem can be resolved or at least helps in identifying the most capable person to do the job, to assure timely resolution to the problem.
Service impact analysis: When the roots to the problems had been discovered, the analytics system helps in drawing the output and thus determining the impact of the same. This helps in devoting the correct amount of resources to correct the fault in most effective and timely manner.
Real time application behaviour analyses: The analytics tool is used for correlating the behaviour of the applications based on the learning of user pattern and infrastructure and thus drawing a metrics of the correlated patterns and store them for analyse in future.
Dynamically baseline threshold: It helps in learning the behaviour of the infrastructure on application user patterns and thus determine the optimal behaviour of technology and infra components.
