As companies deal with an ever growing sea of data, they seek to get ahead of the curve by deploying predictive analytics solutions -- especially in environments with virtualization or cloud computing. Drew Robb reports.
"Predictive analytics for IT is about understanding vast amounts of real-time data to forecast performance issues before they affect users," said Daniel Heimlich, vice president at Netuitive.
"It is powered by behavior learning technology which is a math-based approach that involves advanced statistical analysis and algorithms."
Netuitive, for example, has built a predictive analytics software platform based upon its nine behavior learning patents. It sits on top of the enterprise IT infrastructure stack where it collects and analyzes data in real-time from monitoring tools from vendors such as BMC, IBM, NetApp, CA, HP, VMware, Microsoft, Oracle and Compuware. Heimlich said this enables end-to-end monitoring and management of complex infrastructures with a very small footprint in terms of storage and computing resources.
