  • Publication number: 20180357556
    Abstract: The disclosure generally describes methods, software, and systems, including a method for machine learning anomaly detection for a set of assets. Assets are analyzed using anomaly-detection analysis and a set of anomaly-detection rules. Each asset is associated with correlated records comprising characteristics of the particular asset and characteristic of non-asset-specific signals. Each anomaly-detection rule is associated with conditions determined to be indicative of a potential anomaly. At least a subset of the assets are provided for presentation in a user interface. Each asset is identified as being in a potential anomalous or non-anomalous state based on the anomaly-detection analysis. Input is received from a user identifying at least one asset as anomalous as a non-anomalous asset. Based on the received input, at least one anomaly-detection rule is modified that was applied to identify the asset as anomalous. The modified rule is stored for future analyses.

  • Publication number: 20180357595
    Abstract: The disclosure generally describes methods, software, and systems, including a method for data collection and correlation of information for a set of assets. A set of asset-specific signals is obtained for a plurality of assets. Each asset has a set of characteristics defining the asset. A set of non-asset-specific signals is obtained. At least a portion of the set of non-asset-specific signals is correlated to at least some of the plurality of assets based on a determined correlation between at least one characteristic of a particular asset and a characteristic of the non-asset-specific signals. For each asset, a correlated record of the particular asset comprising the correlated characteristics is stored.

  • Publication number: 20180357292
    Abstract: The disclosure generally describes methods, software, and systems, including a method for providing a suggested view of asset information for presentation. A set of correlated records is identified for a plurality of assets. The set of correlated records includes a correlated set of at least one characteristic of a particular asset and a characteristic of the non-asset-specific signals. The set of correlated records is analyzed to identify a set of anomaly-detection rules. In a presentation of at least a subset of the assets, an indication of assets associated with a potential anomaly identified. A suggested view is identified based on the potential anomaly and at least one characteristic/signal associated with the determination that the potential anomaly exists. The suggested view is provided for presentation in a user interface.

  • Publication number: 20170329630
    Abstract: Disclosed herein are system, method, and computer program product embodiments for managing completion of a task. An embodiment operates by receiving a selection of a collection configured to complete the task. The embodiment determines a context indicator for analyzing an application object in the selected collection. The embodiment processes the application object in based on the context indicator to generate information for completing the task. Another embodiment operates by receiving a selection of a collection configured to complete a task. The embodiment then determines that completion of the task requires solving a situation defined by a situation definition. The embodiment then identifies an anchor application object in the selected collection based on the situation definition. The embodiment then generates related information and a set of actions for solving the situation based on the anchor application object and the situation definition.

  • Patent number: 8700414
    Abstract: A system being monitored generates alerts directed at participants as events to be resolved occur. As a participant resolves an alerted event, the system logs the steps taken by the participant to resolve the event and stores the event resolution log associated with the event. From that event resolution log, a template for a workflow process can be automatically generated. When similar events occur again, the participant for those future events can be provided with the prior stored event resolution log and/or automatically generated templates for a workflow processes corresponding to the stored event resolution log. Iterative generation and editing of templates can be provided for, wherein subsequent event resolutions for similar events are used to modify the workflow process templates developed from previous event resolutions. Events can include conditions being met in data stored by the system or events representing the lack of occurrence of expected events.

  • Patent number: 7979296
    Abstract: Work items are collected from one or more work item providers for presentation to a workflow participant. A work item provider is typically a workflow management system (“WFMS”), but other providers of work items might exist that generate work items and may or may not have their own local worklist. Multiple independent WFMS's of multiple types might provide work items to a universal worklist (“UWL”) service that integrates the work items from all of the providers. Additional integration might be provided between the UWL and work item providers, such as for controlling work item execution with a sub-workflow through an ad-hoc workflow engine. Additional integration provides for custom attributes. Each work item has a type that is used to determine handling for that work item. A universal work list service includes storage for work items, wherein a work item represents a task generated as part of a process flow.

  • Patent number: 7885847
    Abstract: In a structured workflow system, a configurable workflow engine provides mechanisms for executing and scheduling the work items in a defined way. End users use their discretion and define their own “local” processes and “local” rules for processing work items, or deviate from predefined processes. The configurable workflow engine might be installed at a server to organize workflows and business processes where end users can define processing steps for incoming work items by setting up rules and defining workflows as part of a local workflow structure. By defining these rules and workflows, the further processing steps of future incoming work items can be automated. When an administrator directs the workflow engine to move from a current phase to a next phase, the workflow engine deals with the incomplete items by allowing the administrator to carry over work items (or might do it automatically). End-user consultation might be included in the carry-over decisions.

  • Patent number: 7853959
    Abstract: Methods and apparatuses to provide extension to a groupware client to enable the groupware client to access a workflow of a business process from the context of the groupware client. An enterprise server that manages the workflow can interface with the groupware client to provide action on the workflow from within the context of the groupware client. The enterprise server passes the action to the enterprise backend to implement the action on the workflow. Thus, action on the workflow from the groupware client affects the workflow on the enterprise level. Status information about the workflow may be persisted in the groupware client to enable continued interaction with the workflow from within the groupware client.
