Best Practices in Performance Analytics  for Big Data Environments (SAP HANA, Hadoop, Enterprise Applications)

Use Case #2 – Reducing Operational Complexity

Synopsis:

  • Single Pane of Glass
  • Live Visual Layouts
  • Topology Mapping

Use Case Overview

Reducing operational complexity is key to the successful and efficient operation of any Big Data Environment. Having to jump from one console to another to gather performance metrics and manually correlate states for impact and trend analysis is not practical or efficient where automated, proactive intelligence is needed.

What is needed is a single-pane-of-glass across the entire Big Data Environment that can serve as a business intelligence layer across all the technical and functional domains. The business intelligence layer will normalize and organize performance metrics into technology layers and furthermore group these technologies into business process groups. These logical groups are called Business Service Management (BSM) process views.

Customized Live Visual Layouts can be created by importing any image (for example geographical maps, data center layouts, architectural schematics, technology stacks/racks) and overlaying status icons via Centerity’s GUI. All these icons are clickable and drillable. These live visual layouts represent how users want to view their environment and consume information. These layouts present intuitive ways of consuming information, not just because these are images, but because these are logical representations of the way individual users actually perform their functions.
