Automated Predictive Analytics Now Simplified for Easily Scalable IT Infrastructure Compatible with Popular IT Data Sources including Amazon

September 9, 2015 – TeamQuest, a global leader in IT Capacity Planning and Management, today announced a new release of TeamQuest Performance Software. With this latest release, organizations can easily assess the health and potential areas of risk in their IT infrastructure by applying automated and accurate predictive algorithms using data sources within their IT enterprise.

“TeamQuest is the first organization that allows the existing infrastructure to remain entirely intact and augment the existing environment’s operations with the industry leading accurate risk assessment software,” said Dino Balafas, TeamQuest Vice President of Marketing.

TeamQuest Performance Software enables organizations to balance performance and cost of their IT infrastructure while minimizing risk. This release expands the advanced capabilities found in TeamQuest Predictor and AutoPredict by providing the option of using existing data collectors deployed within the IT environment. This makes it possible for companies to leverage TeamQuest’s advanced and automated predictive analytics without duplicating or replacing their existing performance data collection and capacity infrastructure.

The advanced and automated predictive analytics in TeamQuest Predictor with AutoPredictTM alert IT management to problems before they occur. With this latest software release, it is possible to use TeamQuest predictive analytics with non-TeamQuest performance data collection tools. This new software simplifies the implementation of TeamQuest analytics by large enterprise IT organizations with pre-existing performance and capacity data collection tools deployed.

TeamQuest automated predictive analytics are now compatible with commonly used collectors including:

  • Tivoli performance data collection
  • HP performance data collection

The software can be adapted for other data sources as well, provided the underlying performance measures include the necessary metrics and accuracy needed for advanced analytics.

Introducing Public Cloud Support

The new TeamQuest Performance Software also supports measuring and analyzing the performance and capacity of Amazon EC2 instances. Customers gain the ability to analyze EC2-hosted services with services running on in-house IT infrastructure, which increases environment visibility for shops using hybrid cloud environments.

Additionally, customers can perform data collection, analysis, predictive analytics, and capacity planning for Ubuntu, a popular Linux cloud computing platform.

“It’s common for IT analytics software vendors to claim that they have predictive and proactive capabilities, but the software underlying their solutions uses simplistic approximations for how IT infrastructure scales, which can lead to unreliable predictions” said Bill Andruss, Chief Technology Officer of TeamQuest. “TeamQuest Performance Software uses advanced queuing theory to predict what really matters – throughput and response time – not just resource utilization, so users get highly-scalable, automated accuracy without having to understand how it works.”

TeamQuest’s advanced analytics are a feature of TeamQuest Predictor, a software solution for capacity planning. TeamQuest AutoPredictTM functionality automates capacity planning across the entire IT infrastructure, providing continuous, automated health predictions. With TeamQuest Predictor you know about problems before they occur, and you know the most efficient way to prepare. Predictor guides you to optimal hardware configurations so you don’t waste money over-provisioning.
