The talk of Susanne Greiner, our data scientist, arouse special interest. She presented the actual research and development activities in the field of anomaly detection on heterogeneous IT environments. “By the extension of existing standard procedures in the field of performance monitoring we pursue the target to reduce the number of alarms generated by the system to few but relevant notifications. Moreover, we want to optimize the time required by experts and accelerate troubleshooting by the new methods based on machine learning.” explains Greiner. [get the presentation]
