Meet The Startups That Bring Artificial Intelligence To Log Management And Analysis

Artificial Intelligence is set to disrupt every industry vertical. While scenarios like self-driving cars and cancer diagnosis instantly get our attention, more common areas such as IT operations and DevOps are also impacted by AI.

One of the core aspects of DevOps is monitoring and logging. It is common for IT administrators and system operations managers to collect and aggregate logs in a central location. Typically, these logs are used for audit trail, and to perform root cause analysis and remediation. This process is manual where network and application specialists search for a needle in a haystack to detect an anomaly or an unusual pattern in the available system logs. In most of the cases, this analysis takes place after the fact causing significant downtime and disruption to the business.

By bringing Machine Learning to log analysis, the systems become smart by becoming proactive. The algorithms applied to the logs detect anomalies and unusual patterns much before the end users experiencing it.

Sensing the opportunity in algorithmic log management, a few startups have built viable business models in the space of Security Information and Event Management (SIEM).

Here are a few startups that deliver AI-driven log management and analysis –
