Beyond the context that individuals are free to navigate, AI algorithms on traffic cameras can locate events or individuals potentially dangerous for the population. Among others features, AI video analytics can identify drivers, often repeat offenders, who are texting or not observing traffic signs and who are at risk of provoking accidents. AI is increasingly utilized as a ‘precrime’ solution.



IBM z/OS DASD DS8900F – 3390 Disk Infrastructure


Like urbanists who strive to improve circulation in a city, mainframe engineers have for years sought to improve the performance of peripheral hardware infrastructures in order to optimize the MSU resources of z/OS processors.

As the numbers of 3390 logical volumes utilized multiplied by thousands over the years, senior z/OS engineers specialized in I/O performance have retired. DASD and Tape I/O management can be complex but is more important than ever. For instance, response times are now measured in microseconds and working with weighted averages is not adequate anymore to spot volumes causing availability risks.


Easy Analyze DASD Mainframe AI (EADM AI) is a machine learning solution that brings z/OS Storage and I/O expertise inside today’s IT shops, where teams are asked to do more with less.

EADM analyzes data rich RMF and CMF files automatically and daily to inform on the what, where, why and when of availability risks, often caused by response time drifts of critical 3390 volumes that store strategic Enterprise data files.

Whether in IBM, Hitachi Vantara or EMC/DELL DASD infrastructures, EADM keeps z/OS resiliency managers from guessing thanks to a prescriptive AI model that not only detects I/O hotspots but also now recommends tailor-fit solutions to remediate z/OS performance issues.
