IZOA comes with a set of out of the box problem insights. The problem insights dashboard automatically surfaces important messages found in the log data. Once collected, easy to read problem summary and suggested actions for problem resolutions are provided to the user.
This translates to more efficient user workflow and time savings for everyone involved. Each problem insights links directly back to the IBM Knowledge Center for that specific problem ID. The IBM Knowledge Center is a resource that was created to assist both internal and external users with a breadth of further helpful literature.
