The Operational Analytics
Newsletter for the New Era of IT

HELLO AND WELCOME!

“Talk sense to a fool and he calls you foolish.”
-Euripides.

Though I’m not a fan of recycling quotes and borrowing the wisdom of great thinkers, this one recently came to mind. When you have a disruptive message to deliver, quite often the first response of skeptics is to dismiss the idea as foolish, or unimportant.

We have encountered a bit of this at Moogsoft. Our decision to pioneer the use of data science in operational software has caused a variety of defensive reactions. In a recent social media spat, we were accused of not doing anything new, and, a few Wikipedia snippets were thrown at us by way of ‘proof’. The truth is that our commitment is more about helping customers than winning any intellectual debate about data science. What we’ve found, in the real world, is that a number of Machine Learning techniques significantly shorten the time to detect and resolve problems, avoiding lost business for our customers. Ultimately, our software’s value is usually best assessed by trying it, which is why we’re proud of the fact that our approach is being used daily by our customers across a wide variety of business segments.

For this reason, I am extremely excited to see users flocking to our website and trying a free version of Incident.MOOG, as a SaaS instance, to evaluate how we can help their business. We’re keen at Moogsoft to make the promise of our platform – data science driven and socially enabled – as clear to as many as we can.

Whilst we’re on the subject of recycling quotes, Einstein once said, “Information is not knowledge.” It’s nice to know that he foresaw the data science revolution that we are experiencing today, more than 60 years after his death.

INDUSTRY ANALYSIS

Gartner Report: Modernize ECA with IT Infrastructure Monitoring Tools. A new Gartner report this month summarizes: “Legacy manager of manager (MoM) and event correlation and analysis (ECA) tools [such as IBM Netcool, CA Spectrum, BMC EM, EMC Smarts], offer bloated features and require constant tweaking of rules, increasing total cost of ownership (TCO). A new generation of tools [such as recommended vendor, Moogsoft], offers dynamic interpretation of event streams relying on IT operations analytics-type capabilities, and is taking over the legacy ECA tool market.” You can download the full report here. [This report is downloadable for Gartner registered users.]

Machine Learning Driving DevOps Evolution. It’s becoming well-known that automation is necessary for the future of DevOps. Machine learning and AI are being applied more than ever before to automate mundane tasks for DevOps teams.
