Automation Seller: AI Ops - Midwest
Posted on: May 16, 2022
Today, most organizations are transitioning from a traditional
infrastructure of separate, static physical systems to a dynamic
mix of on-premises, managed cloud, private cloud, and public cloud
environments, running on virtualized or software-defined resources
that scale and reconfigure constantly.
Applications and systems across these environments generate a
tsunami of data that keeps growing. In fact, Gartner estimates that
the average enterprise IT infrastructure generates two to three
times more IT operations data every year.
Traditional domain-based IT management solutions can't keep up with
the volume. They can't intelligently sort the significant events
out of the crush of surrounding data. They can't correlate data
across different but interdependent environments. And they can't
provide the real-time insight and predictive analysis IT operations
teams need to respond to issues fast enough to meet user and
customer service level expectations.
IBM Watson AIOps, provides visibility/observability into
performance data and dependencies across all environments, analyzes
the data to extract significant events related to slow-downs or
outages, and automatically alerts IT staff to problems, their root
causes, and the recommended solutions help reduce MTTD (mean time
to detection) & MTTR (mean time to resolution) by applying machine
learning based predictive management approaches.
In addition, the shift to Hybrid Cloud computing brings new
requirements to integrate applications across various environments
while considering the right integration style for the job.
Traditional point solutions can provide a single style of
integration capability (i.e. Point to Point messaging, Enterprise
Services Bus, Large File Transfer, API, Event Based Integration,
etc). This means that for an integration specialist to perform
their job they potential have to work across technologies from
multiple vendors with different interfaces, programming models, and
deployment patterns. This makes delivering consistent and scalable
integration solutions extremely difficult.
IBM Cloud Pak for Integration, delivers on the promise of a single
integrated integration platform that provides all of the
integration capabilities that our customers need to be successful
building robust integration solutions. These capabilities include:
Point to Point messaging, Application connections, API's, Message
Brokering, Security Gateway, Large File Transfers, and Kafka based
Event Management. These capabilities are delivered in a single
integrated platform product, Cloud Pak for Integration. Now clients
can leverage the right integration style for the right job and be
assured to have the same experience across the platform thereby
reducing training, increasing reuse, reducing cost, and achieving
higher quality integrations.
At IBM, work is more than a job - it's a calling: To build. To
design. To code. To consult. To think along with clients and sell.
To make markets. To invent. To collaborate. Not just to do
something better, but to attempt things you've never thought
possible. Are you ready to lead in this new era of technology and
solve some of the world's most challenging problems? If so, lets
