Overview

Top rule

IBM® Cloud Event Management is a cloud-based offering that is designed to enable your DevOps and IT operations teams to help resolve application, service, and infrastructure problems quickly. Cloud Event Management includes:

  • Automated event correlation and prioritized, incident resolution views to remove confusing and irrelevant alerts
  • Integrated notifications to help ensure the right person is notified at the right time
  • In-context runbooks to help ensure speedy resolution of issues

Cloud Event Management helps enable your teams to resolve incidents fast. It can:

  • Expedite problem determination. Automatically ingest thousands of events from disparate sources and correlate them into prioritized incidents.
  • Help restore service quickly. Help resolve simple outages automatically and free up first responders for the hard tasks.
  • Bridge the gap between development and operations teams. Relieve pressure by automatically routing incidents to the right people.
  • Assess and improve operational health. Observe user activity and feedback to build runbook guidance and automation.

Cloud Event Management, previously announced as available from IBM Bluemix® in Software Announcement A17-0718, dated October 17, 2017, is now available for ordering in Passport Advantage® and from the IBM Cloud Event Management website.

Statement of good security practices

Top rule

IT system security involves protecting systems and information through intrusion prevention, detection, and response to improper access from within and outside your enterprise. Improper access can result in information being altered, destroyed, or misappropriated or can result in misuse of your systems to attack others. Without a comprehensive approach to security, no IT system or product should be considered completely secure and no single product or security measure can be completely effective in preventing improper access. IBM systems and products are designed to be part of a regulatory compliant, comprehensive security approach, which will necessarily involve additional operational procedures, and may require other systems, products, or services to be most effective.

Important: IBM does not warrant that any systems, products, or services are immune from, or will make your enterprise immune from, the malicious or illegal conduct of any party.
