Unlock Quick Innovation, Reduce Costs, and Improve Incident Management

How IBM Cloud Pak for Watson AIOps provides broad visibility and smart recommendations for your IT environment.

Installing new software to solve a challenge at your organization can be beneficial, but operationalization is the key to unlocking real, long-term value from a technology solution. Because failure to maintain or use technology consistently can make some solutions more of a detriment than an asset, it’s critical to have an operationalization plan in place before installation.

Technology solutions are also not baked into software—so it’s important that you deploy the right technology to solve your unique business challenges. In this blog, you’ll learn how IBM Cloud Pak for Watson AIOps delivers visibility into performance data and dependencies across all your environments.

Adding Value with Integrations

With IBM Cloud Pak for Watson AIOps, you can innovate faster, reduce operational costs, build, and manage your IT environment securely, and improve incident management. This solution features integrations with more than 100 ITOps tools from popular vendors, helping you connect and collect data from various places and formats within your environment.

By integrating with chat applications, application logs, and other tools, IBM Cloud Pak for Watson AIOps uses a broad set of data to give you a deep understanding of what’s happening across your entire stack. The results? Rapid trend identification and detailed recommendations that minimize the impact on your operations team, even in complex environments.

Let’s examine the benefits of this software solution in more detail:

1. Take advantage of automation

Automatic parsing capabilities help IBM Cloud Pak for Watson AIOps detect trends and anomalies early. After an anomaly is detected, this solution generates a ticket, chat, or alert with the information your team needs to manage your environment or resolve the issue.

IBM Cloud Pak for Watson AIOps also uses natural language processing to enhance predictive operations. Using input data from the unstructured sources it has integrated with, IBM Cloud Pak for Watson AIOps extracts relevant text from chat logs and tickets, then adds it to the alerts for your development and operations teams to review.

2. Quickly resolve issues

IBM Cloud Pak for Watson AIOps also helps you identify and solve problems before they impact your business or your end-users, saving you time and operational costs. Through incident localization, it zeroes in on the root cause of issues, looking at affected components of your infrastructure to understand the context.

IBM Cloud Pak for Watson AIOps also uses algorithms and machine learning (ML) to automatically group events based on existing events that share the same root cause. Plus, the dashboard highlights the original faulty element and the dependent components. These features allow you to spend time solving the problem rather than hunting down affected components in your architecture. Event grouping also reduces the risk of alert overload, keeping your operations and teams running smoothly.

3. Follow AI-driven processes

This solution relies on artificial intelligence (AI) to assess, diagnose, and resolve incidents across your ecosystem, as well as make recommendations to fix issues. For example, IBM Cloud Pak for Watson AIOps uses deep learning models to predict risk based on code and configuration changes, sending operators proactive alerts that include contextual information and historical data.

Using AI, IBM Cloud Pak for Watson AIOps can show users intelligent workflows and recommend next actions relevant to learnings from prior incidents, helping them fix outages faster. Plus, algorithms and ML help IBM Cloud Pak for Watson AIOps learn what is normal for your ecosystem and what is not, reducing the risk of false alerts that can slow down your team.
