IT operations analytics calling

Big Data

About fifteen years ago, while covering application performance management, I had the great good fortune to meet Brend Harzog. Application performance in that first distributed age was like an onion — one with layer after layer that had to be peeled away in order to find the root cause of bottlenecks. Harzog, then a consultant and industry analyst, knew the domain well, and was patient, explaining that domain to a particularly curious journalist.

So, when I learned Brend had gone on to start OpsDataStore, a technology upstart intent on rolling up the diverse data sources in today’s data center into an understandable form, I was very fast to hook up with him for the Talking Data podcast. The topic: IT operations analytics.

It is Harzog’s argument that modern IT doesn’t need more big data as much as it needs tools that bring meaning to that data. While the topic may be a bit afield from our usual fare, we hope it is the start of an occasional series that looks at how big data is impacting some very diverse areas of interest. Listen to this edition of Talking Data. Let us know what you think about it.
