IntelliMagic’s IT Operation Analytics SaaS solutions and services help manage the performance and availability of IBM z/OS mainframe environments and enterprise SAN storage infrastructures.

    Our solutions analyze performance and configuration measurement data using a combination of Artificial Intelligence and embedded expert knowledge to identify issues to protect availability. This is what we call Availability Intelligence.

    This intelligent interpretation detects risks before issues impact production, uncovers true root causes, and identifies optimization opportunities. Its modernized, Cloud-based delivery with optional add-on professional services enables your IT staff to collaborate to increase service levels at optimal cost.

    IntelliMagic was founded in 2002 and delivers its solutions to some of the world’s largest IT datacenters. IntelliMagic employs technical staff with deep expertise in z/OS mainframes and storage infrastructures. The interaction with our customers keeps us at the forefront of knowledge regarding z/OS and storage infrastructure performance and availability.

    Mission and Values

    • Mission

      Our goal is to let customers reduce availability risk and increase service levels to the applications, while at the same time decreasing the cost level. IntelliMagic uncovers hidden infrastructure availability risks by applying platform-specific knowledge to performance measurement data. We believe time should be spent on preventing issues instead of on fire-fighting, and that hardware configurations do not need to be oversized in order to assure continuous availability.

      Performance analysis and capacity planning for enterprise storage and infrastructure are based on vast quantities of data. IntelliMagic’s products perform the entire path of collecting and filtering raw measurement data, intelligently analyzing to reveal the hidden meaning of the metrics, and presenting the results in daily dashboards and detailed graphs. This allows users to spend their time preventing problems rather than fighting fires.

      Our advanced algorithms supply deep knowledge to the user, without requiring them to become an expert themselves in the mathematics of performance management and modeling.

    • Values

      IntelliMagic takes pride in providing the industry’s most advanced and reliable software and services for enterprise storage and infrastructure performance analysis and availability assurance.

      IntelliMagic products use intelligent data interpretation in combination with an effective, flexible and intuitive user interface. Our goal is complete customer satisfaction, so responsiveness to customer questions and a customer-first mentality are very important to us.

      Expertise, technological agility, and mathematical precision are the qualities we pursue in our company and products.

      We strive towards long-term relationships with our employees, customers, and suppliers.

    The Name

    Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic – Arthur C. Clarke, 20th Century Science Fiction writer.

    It is with this adage in mind that the name IntelliMagic came to life. IntelliMagic’s products use embedded expert knowledge to create intelligence out of raw data. The way millions of raw metrics are turned into valuable results requires deep intelligence, but feels like magic.

    The lighthouse has always been a symbol of visibility into hidden risks

    Decades ago, IntelliMagic co-founder Gilbert Houtekamer took the iconic lighthouse photo that is used throughout the IntelliMagic website. For centuries, the lighthouse provided visibility and guidance to sailors navigating near uncertain shores. Similarly, our customers benefit from the visibility that IntelliMagic solutions offer when navigating the hidden performance, capacity and configuration issues that pose risks to the availability of their application infrastructure.

    The lighthouse now only serves as a nostalgic memory, thanks to the technological advancements in navigation techniques, but it remains a strong symbol of visibility into hidden risks.

    Community Involvement

    IntelliMagic is official sponsor of First Chess Team of LSG

    As of 1 September 2022, IntelliMagic’s sponsorship of the first team of the Leiden Chess Society (LSG) has been extended for another three years.

    The team has been very successful since IntelliMagic started the sponsorship in 2015. In 2017 LSG IntelliMagic became Sports team of the year of the city of Leiden. In 2017 they reached the 2nd place in the Dutch Chess Premier League. In 2018 and in 2019 LSG IntelliMagic won the Dutch Chess Premier League. The competitions in 2019-2020 and in 2020-2021 could not be completed due to the pandemic, but in the season 2021-2022, LSG IntelliMagic achieved the second place in the competition, just like in 2017. And in May 2022 LSG IntelliMagic won the Cup of the Royal Dutch Chess Federation (KNSB). It was the second time in its existence that LSG IntelliMagic won the Federation Cup.

    All master league results can be found on the KNSB site.

    Chess and software development

    In chess, the best results are achieved when science, intelligence and art come together to produce something beautiful. IntelliMagic believes quality software is developed in a strikingly similar manner.

    Science is the most important ingredient. IntelliMagic employees typically have academic backgrounds in mathematics, electrical engineering, physics, computer science or other technical disciplines. As in chess, thorough subject matter expertise is the basis of everything that IntelliMagic does.

    Intelligence is a crucial element for translating theory into practice. Applied intelligence is needed to visualize the future and anticipate setbacks. Identifying opportunities and risks is very important in chess and is also integral to the everyday work of IntelliMagic.

    When complexity becomes increasingly large, calculations alone may be insufficient and must be supported by a more abstract art: intuition, almost indistinguishable from magic.

    Sponsoring Leiden Chess Society

    With all this in mind, IntelliMagic has entered into a multi-year sponsorship agreement with the Leiden Chess Society (Leidsch Schaakgenootschap or LSG). LSG is the oldest chess club in Leiden, the home town of IntelliMagic headquarters in the Netherlands. The city of Leiden has been an important haven for both science and chess for hundreds of years. Many famous chess Grandmasters were born in Leiden, and the city has always attracted numerous titled players from other countries because of its rich chess culture.

    The first team of LSG is led and trained by the famous Bosnian-Dutch Grandmaster Predrag Nikolic, who has been national champion of Yugoslavia as well as the Netherlands. The team plays in the top Dutch chess league, the Master league. As a result of this sponsorship, the first team will now be playing under the name “LSG IntelliMagic”.

    This sponsorship will also enable LSG to attract young and talented chess players who come to Leiden to study or work. Conversely, this sponsorship enhances IntelliMagic’s reputation as an inspiring employer in the heart of Leiden – a place where intelligent University graduates may find a challenging career.

    Hortus Botanicus Leiden

    To celebrate its twentieth anniversary in November 2022, IntelliMagic adopted a tree in the Hortus Botanicus in Leiden.

    The Hortus Botanicus Leiden is the oldest botanical garden in Western Europe and dates back to 1590. The garden is located behind the Academy Building of Leiden University, very close to the monumental ‘Latin School’ where IntelliMagic’s headquarters are located.

    Given the proximity of the Hortus to its offices and the value that IntelliMagic places on science and nature conservation, IntelliMagic decided to celebrate its twenty-year anniversary with the adoption of a tree: the narrow-leaved ash in the center of the Hortus. This tree is a real eye-catcher.
