4 Primary Benefits of IntelliMagic Vision for z/OS

Prevent Performance Problems

Predict and Prevent many IT issues without incurring typical false positive and false negative issues.

Benefits

Automatically quantify risks in the z/OS infrastructure for peak workloads or configuration issues prior to production impact being felt by application end-users. Go beyond KPI to KRI (Key Risk Indicators) root cause monitoring.
Continuous Health Check of application and infrastructure stress; assesses millions of metrics using context-specific expert knowledge and statistical techniques.

Resolve Issues Quickly

Accelerate Mean Time To Resolution for unpredictable problems with AI-augmented diagnosis.

Benefits

Rapidly identify where problems are occurring with infrastructure wide exception (anomaly) tables, intelligent navigation through the data from big picture to extremely granular levels, automated compare of time periods, and more.
See and understand what applications are affected, what part of the infrastructure, what time frames, and get clues as to probable cause.

Optimize & Reduce Costs Safely

Save money without compromising service levels or availability.

Benefits

Reduce cost with superior visibility into drivers of cost such as inefficient CPU utilization, configuration and priority issues, imbalance of workloads across hardware resources, consolidation opportunities, etc.
Reduce hardware spend without negative impact on service levels.
Avoid the costs of service delivery problems without both human cost and application unavailability cost.

Elevate IT Team Impact

Empower new staff and experts. Replace antiquated reporting with automated, intelligent analytics.

Benefits

Artificial Intelligence using built-in expert knowledge and statistics assesses and rates key metrics as good versus bad from a performance or efficiency perspective for the analyst.
Force multiplier - Invite AI to the team to help both new and expert team members in a tight job market.
