We are creating ever more complicated systems. But we need help to optimise these systems; to optimise the resources we apply to these systems.
 
In this post I look at how big data is used to optimise our complex systems.
 

 

Using HP's big data solution to fix problems with complex systems

Us humans are creating ever more complex systems. Which is great. But whenever these systems go wrong, it’s becoming harder to figure out where the problem lies. Big data can help because typically, these complex systems create a lot of data that we need to analyse quickly in order to diagnose problems.
 
In this post, I look at how HP's big data solution, HAVEn, is being used to fix complex problems. 

Can big data tell you why your web site is down? With HP HAVEn it can

16C.Heather-Tendo Communications SF-STOLL 2012.jpgI just sat in on a webcast this morning given by Meg Whitman and the heads of various HP business units talking about HP HAVEn, the HP big data platform. (The replay is available, and it’s worth a watch). At Discover Performance we talk all the time about how you need to get visibility into your data so you can see how you’re performing, where you’re not and how to improve. There’s actually a big data component to this goal—because IT is generating tons of data all the time, but generally you don’t have the information that would help you make a decision in time to benefit the business. That’s changed (and check out the V and E parts of my HAVEn dissection below to learn how).
