AI for Managing IT

Devops is struggling to keep up. Web architectures are complex and fluid, creating an accelerating stream of real-time operational problems that have immediate revenue impact. What is needed is automation that can predict and remediate problems before they occur. Based on radical AI technology developed at Stanford University NMLStream's products give Devops the predictive automation they require, thereby accelerating Devops and protecting revenue.

Our solution is automatic, predictive and pro-active, whether used in the cloud, on-prem or in hybrid systems. It presents DevOps with an integrated prediction oriented management view of applications and system performance. NMLStream’s augmented intelligence approach recommends actions and, if appropriate, can execute these actions. Our technology generates a common digital language of system’s behaviors, simplifies collaboration across IT silos.

Industries

NMLStream's technology and platform address pressing management challenges across a wide range of markets. NMLStream's platform represents an automated Managment Intelligence solution for industries overwhelmed by big streaming data and tightening decision loops. In the following industries, recent trends have made Management Intelligence imperative:

Enterprise IoT

Comprehensive instrumentation and monitoring has overloaded manual operator decision-making. Mangement Intelligence makes automated data-driven decisions based on millions of sensor values per second possible.

Software Defined Networking

As virtualization penetrates all layers of the datacenter, abstraction introduces complexity. Management Intelligence is necessary to maintain performance and reliability in a constantly changing system.

IT Admin & DevOps

Business demands require shifting to a hybrid cloud model and custom applications with countless interacting systems and people. Only Management Intelligence ensures availability in complex environments.
In asset intensive businesses, revenue is tied directly to equipment uptime. With compehensive monitoring, operators are subject to more equipment alarms than ever before. Each alarm requires substantial manual triage, inspection, and resolution. However, standard monitoring techniques are vulnerable to false alarms, which expend operator resources and result in unplanned downtime. NMLStream's Managment Intelligence has demonstrated over 40% improvement in false alarm rates.
Application Delivery Controllers (ADCs) shape network traffic for performance, reliability, and security. However, they require extensive configuration based on the characteristics of the application, current load, and network topology. In a Software Defined Network, all of these factors change rapidly, making manual reconfiguration prohibitively expensive. NMLStream's Managemenent Intelligence can reconfigure ADCs in response to changing system conditions much faster than humans, reducing the burden for IT administrators.
When custom applications directly impact revenue, keeping them online is essential. However, they are difficult to maintain because documentation is scarce, and knowledge is distributed between developers who may no longer be available. NMLStream's Management Intelligence is able to learn the characteristics of custom applications without examining or modifying the code. With this automatic centralized understanding, triaging and resolving issues becomes orders of magnitude more efficient.
