At Microsoft, there is a common need to monitor product and business metrics to stay on top of product and business health and act quickly to address issues deviating from the historical pattern. The need is simple and clear. However, it turns out to be extremely difficult to have a scalable system that is also smart enough to provide automated anomaly detection across a wide spectrum of time series related to business or product performance as well as automated diagnostic insight into why that business incident happens.

Tony Xing and Bixiong Xu explore pain points from Microsoft customers and detail Microsoft’s path to implementing Kensho, an automated business incident monitoring and diagnostics system powered by AI to serve different Microsoft teams. Tony and Bixiong cover lessons learned during the process, the evolution of the technology, the solution architecture, and the algorithms and explain how collectively this combination of engineering and algorithms solve a common need that is applicable not only to Microsoft but to the industry as a whole.
