IT organizations are being challenged to manage and optimize IT system and application performance, availability, resource usage, and end-user experience across large-scale, complex virtualized and cloud environments. IT operations analytics software and SaaS solutions provide data-driven capabilities for the prediction, prevention, troubleshooting, and root-cause analysis of service impacting events based on big data/analytics and analysis of machine-generated log data and related metrics data. Innovators are expanding the range, capabilities, and technology of IT operations analytics solutions.“Vendors that are truly innovating in IT operations and analytics go beyond the status quo and build products that provide value for their customers, even in complex data-driven environments. Sumo Logic is one of those innovators expanding capabilities of IT operations analytics solutions.”
