How much time do you have before the infrastructure supporting your critical business service runs out of resources? Days, weeks, hours? Do you have a reliable method to create accurate forecasts for the timeseries data that’s important to your business?

How do you even forecast timeseries data given the complexity of the environment and sheer volume of data?

What algorithm would you use? Quadratic? Robust Exponential Damping? Multiplicative Exponential Trend? The options are endless, and you likely need to be a math major to figure them out.

Forget all that and let BMC’s free Forecasting as a Service Tool—or FaaST—figure it out for you.

You supply the timeseries data, and we’ll immediately and automatically determine which algorithm to use out of 14 possibilities and provide you with a result in seconds.
