Evolven Granted Patent for Root Cause Analysis
Evolven announces 5th patent for it’s unique Change Collection and Analytics Technology
JERSEY CITY, NJ, June 3, 2020 – Evolven Software, provider of leading Change Analytics software for enterprise cloud, today announced it has secured a new patent from the U.S. Patent & Trademark Office (USPTO) for its root cause analysis method. Evolven’s latest patent, USPTO Patent No. US20170213142A1, is the fifth patent granted to Evolven since 2016, recognizing its unique Change Collection and Analytics Technology system.
Evolven’s Change Analytics patented technology is the only solution tracking incident root cause back to the actual configuration changes in IT environments, with the ability to reliably prioritize changes by the likelihood of a particular change being the root cause of a failure. Evolven technology constructs a comprehensive understanding of each change, its role in the system, ability to impact performance, availability, connectivity etc, and initial operational risk. Once a change occurs, Evolven’s unique technology predicts how long before the change can manifest as a problem, putting Evolven in a unique position to build a change lifetime profile for each individual change.
Identified change characteristics augmented with lifetime profile gives Evolven the ability to accurately calculate the likelihood that a specific change is the root cause of an incident, significantly improving incident remediation to prevent economic damage to organizations.
“We are excited to have secured this patent from USPTO, further validating these unique capabilities in our platform,” said Bostjan Kaluza, Chief Data Scientist at Evolven. “With our technology, IT professionals will know which changes lead to an incident, where in the stack are they, how likely they are to be the root cause of an issue, and how to avoid such incidents in the future.”
While we all recognize that unknown changes are the root cause of most stability issues, IT nonetheless struggles to identify what has actually changed. Evolven allows enterprises to track all actual changes that have occurred in their environment, using machine learning to detect and prioritize the riskiest ones. With Evolven, IT Operations, DevOps, and ITSM teams experience fewer incidents, faster MTTR, and improved productivity.
Evolven is a recognized AIOps (Artificial Intelligence for IT Operations) leader and was named IDC Innovator of the year in 2017 and Gartner as a Cool Vendor in IT Operations. Evolven has also been included in Red Herring Top 100 North America. TiE 50 Top Startups, 20 Most Promising Data Center Solution Providers, Top 10 Banking Analytics Solution Provider, and was recipient of ITOA50 awards.
