Introduction
IBM Netcool Operations Insight V1.3 combines the market-leading real-time event consolidation and correlation capabilities of IBM Tivoli Netcool/OMNIbus and the transformative power of IT operations analytics applied to all of the alerts and events managed by Netcool/OMNIbus. The
analytics capabilities can also be applied to data from other applications, including application and system logs, Windows event logs, support information, and other types of unstructured data. Netcool Operations Insight provides operations with context and insight that increases operational agility and
efficiency.

New event seasonality and related event analysis assists in detecting regularly occurring events and groups of events, enabling more proactive automation and resolution. Version 1.3 also provides real-time enrichment and sophisticated correlation to enable agile responses to alerts raised across disparate systems. Social media interactions help extend operational visibility to the business, providing dynamic incident and service information to key stake
holders through IBM Connections.
