Appnomic Systems Highlighted in Leading Analyst Firm’s IT Operations Analytics Report

Appnomic Application Behavior Learning-based Preventive Approach to APM Example of Statistical Pattern Discovery and Recognition Analytics (SPDR) in ITOA

Santa Clara, CA - October 15, 2012 - Appnomic Systems, the leading provider of preventive IT performance management solutions, today announced its inclusion in a Gartner Report regarding trends in IT Operations Analytics (ITOA)[1]. Appnomic's AppsOne product was listed as an example of technologies using Statistical Pattern Discovery and Recognition (SPDR) - an approach that enables system discovery and description, root cause analysis, behavior prediction and action planning.

Gartner noted in a recent report [2] IT Operations analytics is not filtering, aggregating, visualizing multi-dimensional data in two-dimensions, but should include features to draw inferences and insights to prevent undesirable events impacting availability and performance of critical IT applications. Gartner also noted in this report that during the past five years, it has become commercially feasible to deploy IT operations analytics (ITOA) technology, adding inferential capabilities to event- and performance- monitoring systems, and enabling IT operations teams to automate data analysis and insight. ITOA systems can be used by IT operations professionals to [3]:

  • Predict events and recommend remediation
  • Assess the impacts of multiple known root causes
  • Ascertain root causes of performance problems
  • Support model discovery

The AppsOne’s feature that generates Automated Dynamic Thresholds (ATD) on application components is an example of what Gartner describes as ITOA tools capability to automatically select the best fit model to describe performance behavior. With AppsOne Early Warning Alerts, IT operations professionals can prevent costly availability and performance incidents. Early Warning Alerts capture deviations in performance from expected Infrastructure component states and pin points fine-grained root cause.

“As soon as we are deployed in an IT infrastructure, our customers are shocked by how simple and seamless it can be to avoid complex application issues,” said Ray Solnik president, U.S. operations, Appnomic Systems. “We have seen successful use cases with our installations where our technology has flagged issues with performance behavior of application components which could have resulted in serious impact on end user experience. We are proud to have been recognized in Gartner’s report.”
