Platform Overview

vuSmartMaps™, a business journey observability platform, uses advanced AI/ML models to deliver actionable contextualized intelligent insights for end-to-end business operations, providing unified observability across network, infrastructure, and application layers. Real-time business observability and analytics enable businesses to achieve 99.99% application availability and enhance customer satisfaction. vuSmartMaps provides a flexible solution for businesses of all sizes, utilizing scalable system architecture with the latest technologies, languages, and Gen AI features to enhance your organization’s growth and boost brand value.

Functional Architecture of vuSmartMaps

The functional architecture of vuSmartMaps begins with data acquisition, where information is gathered from target systems via Observability Sources (O11ySources). Once the data is ingested into vuSmartMaps, it proceeds through the ContextStream for contextualization, enhancing its relevance and usability. Subsequently, the processed data is stored in HyperScale Data Store for efficient storage and retrieval.

Concurrently, vuCoreML algorithms and modeling engine functions analyze the data. This enables the execution of machine learning models for tasks such as Event Correlation, Root Cause Analysis (RCA), and RAG/LLM assessments.

Operating alongside the core architecture is the Control Center, comprising vuLauncher and vuSiteManager. vuLauncher facilitates the installation of vuSmartMaps within a Virtual Machine (VM)-based environment, while vuSiteManager ensures self-observability, monitoring the system’s health.

For end-users, vuSmartMaps provides various significant outcomes, including interactive Storyboards, Smart Alerts, Configurable Reports, Mobile Applications, GenAI Chatbot integration, APIs, and Incident Response capabilities. These features empower users with actionable insights and facilitate informed decision-making.
