Overview

IBM Operations Analytics Predictive Insights analyzes data and learns the normal behavior of a system through KPI metric data streams.  This includes data from various sources including metrics gathered by industry performance and network monitoring solutions.  A mediation pack helps users quickly integrate the KPI data streams by providing a default model to integrate a particular performance manager.

IBM Operations Analytics Predictive Insights Mediation Pack for Microsoft System Center Operations Manager (SCOM) provides a pre-built model for data ingestion.  Predictive Insights creates a performance model that it uses to detect or forecast behavior outside the modeled range, including generating an alarm when an anomalous behavior occurs.  Doing so enables organizations to pro-actively avoid system and solution outages before users are impacted.


SCOM mediation pack architecture

The Mediation Pack for Microsoft SCOM provides the capability to ingest performance data and metrics from Microsoft SCOM into IBM Operations Analytics Predictive Insights to perform analysis. The Mediation pack automatically consumes metrics for key Microsoft products including Windows OS, IIS and MS SQL.
