Manage Risk & Maintain Profitability

X-Act® OBC Platform combines state-of-the-art prescriptive analytics, machine learning and automation to deliver the foresight businesses need to more effectively and agilely respond to risks that are growing in frequency and severity due to the dynamic complexity of our modern world.

X-Act OBC Platform Overview

In many cases the information gained through current risk management platforms is no better than astrology. Vague predictions, disjointed or missing information, unknown timelines and unquantifiable repercussions make it difficult for leaders to propose and defend any change that will cost the business money or alter the current status quo.

With X-Act OBC Platform, users can gain a wider understanding of risk and prescriptively determine which actions are necessary to ensure the business is optimally positioned to meet its stated long-term goals and objectives.

  • Monitor the Health of Operations

    X-Act actively monitors systems to identify circumstances under which changing dynamic complexity can negatively impact the quantity, quality and/or cost performance of business processes.

  • Identify Risks in Terms of Business Impact

    X-Act helps users identify significant risks across all layers (business, application, server, database, disk subsystems and communication) and understand the risk in business terms.

  • Accurately Predict New Risks

    X-Act uses algorithmic forecasting to predict both known and new patterns of behavior more accurately and faster than big data and statistical approaches—which are limited by their dependence on historical data.

  • Pinpoint the Root Cause of Risk

    X-Act helps users quickly model business, IT and systems to understand interdependencies, expose the root cause of risk and anticipate the future impact.

  • Know Which Actions to Take Before Problems Appear

    X-Act reduces the time to solution by automating the diagnosis and delivery of remedial recommendations directly to those empowered to act—well before any symptoms of problems appear.

  • Gain Actionable Insights in 10 Days (or Less)

    Getting started is easy. A library of over 10,000 pre-modeled components and comprehensive case knowledge base helps users (even those without analytics experience) derive value in 10 days or less.


Solving the Unsolvable Performance Issues

Thomas Rose's latest blog post, Solving the Unsolvable Performance Issues in Complex Cloud and Bare Metal Environments, explains how IBM Cloud Load Simulation (CLS) Platform is using X-Act OBC Platform in IBM client engagements to diagnose dynamic complexity related problems that were previously believed to be unsolvable.
