Ask SysTrack, the Workspace Analytics Insight Engine powered by
IBM Watson cognitive services, delivers instant answers and insights
for the hardest questions in IT
Bloomfield Hills, MI ― September 8, 2016 ―
Lakeside Software, provider of the leading workspace analytics solution, today announced that it has won the
Best of VMworld 2016 Judges’ Choice Award for Disruptive Technology. Ask SysTrack, an insight
engine that leverages IBM Watson cognitive services to enable a natural language interface
for the SysTrack Workspace Analytics platform, was recognized at the VMworld 2016 conference
held last week in Las Vegas and sponsored by VMware, Inc.
Ask SysTrack is an integrated component
of the SysTrack platform that applies relevancy methods to describe, discover, organize and
analyze data to allow for information to be delivered interactively and in the context of the
user at timely business moments. With Ask SysTrack, users can interactively get answers to
any question about IT with natural-language queries and, as such, instantly get access to
real-time and historical insights, trends, and information.
Ask SysTrack “uses natural language queries to allow users to search across all [the company’s]
products and data that it collects. This innovation saves time and lets users discover the most
appropriate data more efficiently than searching manually,” stated the independent judges
consisting of experts and editors from TechTarget’s
that selected the winners of the Best of VMworld 2016 Awards.
Judges did not accept nominations for the Disruptive Technology category, but had the option
to recognize an innovative product that has the potential to create a new market or disrupt
an existing market with a new technology. Judges considered all nominated products, as well
as products on display at VMworld 2016 that were not nominated for the awards – including
products that have not yet been released.
to learn more about this new workplace analytics insight engine that gives IT organizations
the ability to rapidly query data and draw insights from their data, to optimize user
experience, mitigate risk, minimize cost, and make better decisions.
Piero Chiodo, vice president, Client Care Services, GTS Mobility Services, IBM:
“By combining IBM Watson cognitive services with SysTrack workspace analytics, the
Ask SysTrack insight engine puts IT insights at the fingertips of business users exactly
when they need them. The more IT data that organizations collect, the harder it is to find
the data they need. Just as consumer search engines enable easy discovery of information,
so IT departments and workspace service providers must also create value for business
users through a similar means of natural language and contextual search.”
Brinton Baker, chief marketing officer, Lakeside Software:
