  • Patent number: 11416560
    Abstract: A search device has a know-how storing unit for storing a log indicating a past crisis response instance, one of a “problem” label indicating that the log is of a problem instance that is to be responded and solved, a “result” label indicating that the log is of a result brought about by a responding action, and a “response” label indicating that the log is of a responding action that has been performed to solve a problem, and a task number corresponding to the log, in association with each other. Further, there is a know-how search unit for repeating a search to retrieve a log similar to a first search key that is an input log from logs assigned the “problem” label in the know-how storing unit, and a search to retrieve a log similar to a second search key.

  • Publication number: 20220166840
    Abstract: A storage unit stores a service support system and a service function constituting the service support system in association with each other, and stores a target restoration level at the time of a failure of the service support system, an achievement determination criterion defined using the service function to determine that the target restoration level has been reached, and an implementation item constituting a countermeasure for realizing the target restoration level in association with each other. A determination section determines whether the service support system is functioning normally, by using failure information of the service support system, and when it is determined that the service support system is not functioning normally, a specifying section refers to the storage unit and specifies a target restoration level corresponding to the achievement determination criterion corresponding to a service function concerning the failure information, from the target restoration levels of the business.

  • Patent number: 11301482
    Abstract: Based on a presentation rule in which a DB to be searched, a search condition, and a user terminal targeted for presentation are set, a support device transmits, to a management device, a know-how search request including a search condition corresponding to a presentation type in a presentation request according to the presentation type indicating which business the presentation of know-how is requested for. The support device integrates returned pieces of know-how information, and presents the integrated know-how information to a user terminal. The management device searches, if the requester is allowed to access the DB to be searched based on control information in which a DB to be disclosed and a type of know-how information are associated with disclosure destination information indicating a destination for disclosure.

  • Patent number: 11178081
    Abstract: A server (10) that manages a plurality of boards refers to, when a similarity between a message Ax of a board A and a message Bx of a board B is equal to or greater than a prescribed value, information disclosable range information of each board, and when it is determined that boards capable of disclosing a message of the board B includes the board A, discloses the message Bx on the board A. In addition, when the server (10) refers to the information disclosable range information of each board and determines that the boards capable of disclosing a message of the board A includes the board B, discloses the message Ax on the board B.

  • Publication number: 20210263187
    Abstract: A storage unit stores ranking information including an index value relating to past rainfall and a corresponding date-time and damage information including details of damage that occurred due to past rainfall and a corresponding date-time. A real-time data reception unit acquires a spot value and a forecast value of current precipitation. Also, a comparison operation unit computes an index value relating to current rainfall using the acquired spot value and forecast value. The comparison operation unit specifies, with reference to the ranking information, the date-time of an index value relating to past rainfall whose similarity to the computed index value relating to current rainfall is not less than a threshold value. An information output unit presents, with reference to the damage information, details of damage that occurred in a period whose difference from the specified date-time of the index value relating to past rainfall is in a predetermined range.

  • Publication number: 20210264549
    Abstract: A server (10) stores a task ID of information on a task that is viewed by a client terminal (20) and a screen shot when the client terminal (20) logs out from the server (10) as a user activity log of the client terminal (20). In addition, when the client terminal (20) logs into the server (10) once again, the server (10) refers to the user activity log of the client terminal (20) and displays a screen shot upon a previous logout. Furthermore, the server (10) refers to a task ID included in the user activity log of the client terminal (20) and displays unread tasks of the client terminal (20) .
