"Learning Technologies" Reinvent Systems Management

Leading This Emerging Market, Netuitive's Self-Learning Performance Management Software Unlocks Value of Traditional Systems Management Solutions

RESTON, VA--(Marketwire - July 9, 2007) - The dissatisfaction with traditional systems management solutions from HP, CA, BMC and IBM continue to grow year after year. In a recent Gartner poll, over 70% of companies graded these solutions as Cs or Ds, which is consistent with the poll taken one year earlier.(1) There are several reasons for this continued discontent, most importantly are the inability for the "Big Four" to keep up with new technologies and their lack of innovation. The recent introduction and increased adoption of learning technologies has become instrumental in unlocking the power of these offerings.

According to a recent report by Gartner, "During the past two years, learning technologies have emerged to provide IT operation teams with the ability to predict IT issues before they occur."(2) These new technologies have become important ingredients to any IT operations group because they move the organization from a reactive to proactive environment. By deploying learning technologies, companies can begin to predict when problems occur instead of using existing systems to only help reduce mean time to resolution (MTTR).

"The need to increase IT operational efficiencies, along with being proactive by getting advanced knowledge of impending problems, is leading IT executives to adopt learning technologies that adapt to constant IT changes and provide action-oriented information on potential IT infrastructure issues," stated David Williams, research vice president for Gartner.

With over 170 customers, including Dow Jones, Barclays and the U.S. Air Force, Netuitive is leading the learning technologies market with its self-learning performance management software. Netuitive takes away the manual guesswork for estimating baselines, setting thresholds and writing scripts by automatically building Adaptive Behavior Profiles according to an environment's unique performance patterns. Using mathematical trend analysis, Netuitive software can accurately predict system and service level degradations up to two hours in advance. When Netuitive detects or forecasts abnormal behavior, a Trusted Alarm® is issued which provides a composite analysis of the underlying root-cause.

Joseph Ambrose, a former vice president of a Fortune 50 company who used this technology, adds, "There have not been any new developments in systems management for five to seven years, making it difficult to keep up with how IT environments operate today -- running faster, larger volumes, more data to manage, etc." Ambrose deployed Netuitive self-learning software to see infrastructure and business performance issues in real-time. "Netuitive's results are pretty significant, dramatically decreasing severity one issues and the time to repair them, enabling companies to tie IT to company revenues."

"The bottom line is that without any new innovations, the Big Four vendors continue to provide rules-based tools that purely rely on guesswork and are ineffective as a result," stated Nicola Sanna, CEO and president of Netuitive. "With the introduction of self-learning performance management software, such as Netuitive, companies are finally able to unlock the value of these systems and move them from Cs and Ds to As."
