Open ITOA = Operational Intelligence

An open architecture leads to maximum IT operational analytics visibility and business insights.

Data-Driven IT

No matter how valuable our wire data analytics platform is, it will not, by itself, provide comprehensive visibility into today's complex and hyper-dynamic IT environments. The time has come for organizations to embrace an intentional, architectural approach to IT Operations Analytics (ITOA). This means bringing together multiple sources of data to enable data-driven IT operations, and delivering consistent, high-quality results for maximum performance, availability, security, and business insight.

Analysts estimate that by 2017, 15% of enterprises will actively use ITOA solutions, up from just 5% in 2014. IT executives should plan an open architecture for their ITOA solution, which will minimize costs and ensure the best results for their organization.

Discover New Insights

An Open ITOA architecture is based on the principle of streaming different IT data sets - wire data, machine data, agent data, and synthetic data - into a scalable, non-proprietary data store for multi-dimensional analysis. The objective of an Open ITOA architecture is to enable the discovery of valuable new relationships and insights derived from these combined data sets. These discoveries drive improved and more efficient IT operations, prevent data lock-in to proprietary systems, and provide a roadmap for the cost-effective expansion of the analytics architecture.

By classifying data sets according to their source, you can select best-in-class technology on an objective basis. The goal is to put you in control of your ITOA platform by providing vendor choice and minimizing switching costs if you decide to replace any particular data source technology.
