Operations Bridge is a suite of tools that monitor, analyze - using big data techniques, remediates issues and gives sub-second visualization of hybrid cloud and traditional IT environments.

Business Value Dashboard, the visualization component presents IT metrics in the context of business services. This allows line of business owners to understand what is happening in terms they understand and adapt to changing conditions with informed decisions.

Its Autonomous Operations capabilities collapse symptom events under root cause events reducing the number of events operators need to review. Customers have reported 25 to 40 percent reduction in events and up to 80 percent fewer critical incidents because of this correlation.

Operations Bridge monitoring automatically discovers new instances of containers and virtual machines (VM) and begins monitoring them. Monitors are stopped when the container or VM stops running. Analytics includes a time machine function which acts like a DVR allowing users to go back in time to see when metrics started to reflect the problem. The analytics engine also does predictive analysis, setting dynamic thresholds without any user defined rules.

Micro Focus Operations Bridge 2017.08 is available now.
