Behavior Analytics for IT System Performance Management

IT system performance management has become more difficult due to  increasing complexity, scale  and dynamicity driven by changing business and technology advancements including virtualization, cloud computing and XaaS delivery models.  Business and IT leaders are challenged more than ever to maintain the IT system performance required to sustain business critical services and operations while minimizing costs.

Based on review of available IT system performance management tools and technologies, NEC has determined a need for more fundamental innovation to achieve sustainable performance management solutions.  NEC R&D developed patented behavior analytics technology called Invariant Analyzer to help overcome the limitations of conventional IT performance management technologies.

Invariant Analyzer for System Performance ManagementInvariant Analyzer enables automated learning and discovery of normal system performance behavior to eliminate the need for labor intensive and costly and slow manual maintenance required by conventional performance management tools and technologies.  In addition, Invariant Analyzer provides predictive anomaly detection based on analysis of many invariant behavior relationships across multiple IT domains (e.g. application, server, network, etc.) that is more robust and accurate to help prevent and minimize business impact.

NEC is currently working with IT system performance management software providers to bring the power of Invariant Analyzer to users as a behavior analytics engine that leverages and integrates with existing IT system performance management environments.
