Outstanding Technical Achievement Award
IBM Watson Research, 2006
The Integrated Infrastructure Intelligence (i3) is a mashup and analytics framework for managing disparate infrastructure components. Developed as part of a First-of-a-Kind project with a large cable provider, i3 was used to monitor over 400,000 devices. A key component of i3 is an inference algorithm that uses historical failure patterns for discovering hidden topologies, even in the presence of noisy and incomplete data. i3 automatically identifies shared failure risk. When failure is detected, i3 tracks impacted users using an adaptive monitoring technique. This project was awarded a ‘Research Accomplishment’ for demonstrating over $10M revenue impact.
