203 views

Published on

Today’s enterprises with mainframes and Cloud/server architectures are facing new issues and challenges, among the top of which are security and automation of operations. As the sheer amount of data housed on mainframes rises, daily operations have become more complex and more difficult to handle manually.

Whether you’re a CIO, CISO, VP of Infrastructure and/or Operations, or an all-important IT practitioner, you need new ways to approach and address these challenges as well as the opportunities that come with driving this type of change. In this webcast, you’ll learn:
• What is Machine Learning: The Vision vs. Reality
• The Challenges Driving Automated Mainframe Operations
• Use Cases for Machine Learning at Mainframe Enterprises

  11. 11. What is Machine Learning? “Machine Learning is a fascinating field of artificial intelligence research and practice where we investigate how computer agents can improve their perception, cognition, and action with experience. Machine Learning is about machines improving from data, knowledge, experience, and interaction…”
  12. 12. Machine Learning Machine learning uses algorithms to build analytical models and help computers “learn” from data. It makes predictions and uncovers hidden insights about relationships and trends.

  15. 15. Categories of Techniques Supervised Learning: Have the idea that there is a relationship between the input and the output. • Regression model: predict continuous valued output • Housing price • Weather forecast • Classification model: map input variables into discrete categories. • Identify cancer • Handwriting detection Unsupervised Learning: little or no idea what our results should look like. • Clustering: • Market segmentation • Social network analysis • Anomaly detection

  25. 25. Splunk Platform Machine Learning Toolkit The Machine Learning Toolkit App delivers new SPL commands, custom visualizations, assistants, and examples to explore a variety of ml concepts. Assistants: – Predict Numeric Fields (Linear Regression): e.g. predict median house values. – Predict Categorical Fields (Logistic Regression): e.g. predict customer churn. – Detect Numeric Outliers (distribution statistics): e.g. detect outliers in IT Ops data. – Detect Categorical Outliers (probabilistic measures): e.g. detect outliers in diabetes patient records. – Forecast Time Series: e.g. forecast data center growth and capacity planning. – Cluster Numeric Events: e.g. Cluster Hard Drives by SMART Metrics
  26. 26. The Basic Process of Machine Learning Clean and transform your data – To meet the analytics explicit requirements Fit the model – Toolkit features 27 algorithms for fitting models – Over 300 open source Python algorithms in the add-on Validate the model – Each assistant provides a few methods in the validate section Refine the model – Adjust the parameters to improve the metrics Deploy the model – Deployment actions fall into the following categories • Make prediction or forecast • Detect outliers and anomalies • Trigger or inform an action
