As a Data Scientist at IBM, you will help transform our clients’ data into tangible business value by analyzing information, communicating outcomes and collaborating on product development. Work with Best in Class open source and visual tools, along with the most flexible and scalable deployment options. Whether it’s investigating patient trends or weather patterns, you will work to solve real world problems for the industries transforming how we live.

Your Role and Responsibilities

IBM Global Technology Services (GTS) is the IT infrastructure and business process services segment of IBM, one of the largest IT and software companies in the world.

GTS Analytics team in IBM is building new innovative AIOPS solution by combining big data with Machine Learning and Deep Learning

AIOPS refers to multi-layered technology platforms that automate and enhance IT operations by using analytics and machine learning to analyse big data collected from various IT operations tools and devices, in order to automatically spot and react to issues in real time. AIOPS bridges three different IT disciplines—service management, performance management, and automation—to accomplish its goals of continuous insights and improvements.

Some of the Solutions we work involve the following

Ø Real time anomaly detection solutions that proactively identify service impacting incidents and prevent system downtimes. This is done by leveraging an ensemble of Deep learning and LSTM models.

Ø Natural Language Processing for entity, topic clusters and relationship extraction

Ø Text Analytics in human generated tickets and correlation with event tickets for event noise reduction. ApplyNatural Language Classification and RNN algorithms to automatically route tickets

Ø Log Analysis - Text mining, message clustering / templatization, Logs to metrics, anomaly detection, event annotation and sequencing

Ø Learn Log Message Sequence for each mainframe batch job and Identify Anomalies during job runs using sequence mining techniques and provide early warning / alerts

Ø Cloud Migration - Patterns-based discovery optimization: Identify potential business application boundaries using algorithmic approach from Cloudscape data.

Ø Wave planner: Employ goal-based reasoning from AI planning capabilities for Server affinity, cost, time, black-out windows, etc.

To power the above use cases, we have a Big Data system that can handle 2-3 TB of data daily and we manage a data lake that is 15 PB in size.

As a Principal Data Scientist, you will be responsible for identifying and supporting current and new hypotheses. With your understanding of complex concepts, you will translate hypotheses into actionable items that are understandable by non-technical business users.

As a Principal Data Scientist you will take the lead to provide strategic direction on large scale business problems. You understand challenges in multiple business domains, are able to discover new business opportunities and at times you may not even fully understand what the problem is before starting.
