SIOS Technology Named Enterprise Management Associates Vendor to Watch

EMA’s Vendors to Watch are companies that deliver unique customer value by solving problems that had previously gone unaddressed.

EMA chose SIOS for its innovative new SIOS iQ advanced IT operations analytics software product. EMA recognized SIOS iQ for the breadth of data it analyzes and the depth of analysis it provides combined with a clear initial focus on supporting database and IT administrators seeking to optimize application performance in virtualized environments. The solution’s platform design will enable it to natively expand to support a much wider range of roles, including more executive roles (IT director and above), who, according to EMA research, tend to drive most IT operations analytics deployments in large part due to their game-changing nature across IT silos.

“SIOS iQ also stands out because of its focus on ease of deployment, ease of data assimilation, and ease of use,” said Dennis Drogseth, vice president, Enterprise Management Associates. “SIOS iQ is designed to provide a layered value over other IT investments, which is a key characteristic of the best offerings in the emerging analytics market for improved efficiency and relevance. EMA looks forward to watching the market response to SIOS iQ in the coming months—and anticipates strong immediate benefits for early adopters willing to work with, and possibly even contribute to, a promising and progressive analytics platform.”

“We designed SIOS iQ from the ground up to deliver a user experience as simple and easy-to-use as any mobile app,” said Jerry Melnick, COO, SIOS Technology. “We’ve made the patented SIOS PERC Dashboard™ an easy-to-use and invaluable tool for IT staff in VMware environments. It provides a holistic view of the operational state, of the virtual environment across four quality-of-service dimensions: performance, efficiency, reliability, and capacity (PERC) utilization. It alerts IT to potential performance problems, recommends solutions to problems, and predicts the outcome if recommended solutions are implemented. EMA’s recognition of our efforts is a testament that we got it right.”

Whereas most approaches focus on a single object or a subset of objects, SIOS iQ uses an innovative approach that applies advanced machine learning and topological behavior analysis to learn the subtle patterns of behavior of the infrastructure as a whole. Without manual configuration, it automatically recognizes deviations from normal behavior that are predictive of impending or on-going issues and links these to the complete set of inter-related objects impacted. This approach eliminates alert storms and false positives that are typical in first generation analytics tools and enables faster, more accurate identification and resolution of issues.

SIOS iQ enables one-click root cause analysis, easy (agent-free) deployment with low administrative overhead, mobile tablet access with a well thought-out UI, an API friendly to the assimilation of third-party sources, and a core design optimized to support changing and evolving requirements.
