The ad showed a repairman entering an office building and saying, “I’m here to fix the elevator.” The security guard responds, “We have no problem.” Then the repairman replies that the problem will occur in three days, and he was able to know this through access to IBM Watson performing predictive analysis.
In regard to networks, could predictive analytics allow us to predict network problems such as failures, degradation, and performance issues? It seems a reasonable question to ask, however, it requires some knowledge of analytics technologies to understand the success of predictive analytics for networks. Read entire article…
