Savision IQ – Aggregate monitoring data from different sources (+ natural search capabilities)
Savision, a company that we all know to provide a management pack for Microsoft SCOM you had to have, is working on a new solution. What they noticed talking to customers and companies is that every one is using multiple monitoring solutions. Companies have a lot of point solutions to monitor a specific segment of their network or a specific functionality. This leads to many console and a lot of data that is not aggregated in one console. Searching through all this data trying to find the needle in the haystack is a burden for many IT admins. Savision recognised this problem and developed a new solution, Savision IQ. In this article I will give an overview of Savision IQ and why I think it is interesting for many companies facing similar problems.
Monitoring dataMonitoring systems generates data, everyone working long enough in IT knows the massive amounts of data e.g. Microsoft SCOM produces. It is one reason customers are reluctant for new monitoring systems. Mailboxes are overloaded and most alerts stay in the inbox marked unread. Microsoft SCOM and almost any other product out there is designed from a dashboard principle where you build a dashboard and read statuses there.
What I also notice is that when you have a lot of data, you would like to ask the system for a specific metric. You would like to talk to it, like you talk at home to Alexa or NVIDIA Shield. Natural language queries like “I would like to see all machines with less than 2GB of RAM”. Offering that to a customer would simplify his or her work and speed up issue tracking. you’d like to search your data like you search the Internet with Google. Easy language understandable for everyone with a lot of option to filter. Below you see a screenshot of how Savision IQ does this, you connect a lot of data sources and with a query you get data from all of them.
