Designing and deploying an AI-based real-time alerting system for a global logistics company

Real-time insights and early warning about system outages

For logistics providers, the availability of a well-organized system is essential for an efficient package delivery process. If the system is down, delivery will be delayed. This will negatively impact the customer relationship and the company-internal processes. The customer, a global logistics company, approached T-Systems to create a solution that would enable effective monitoring of critical interfaces to their customer-facing systems.

The challenges

  • Business impact: Revenue decreases due to sudden outages in systems relevant for sales
  • High support costs: Resource intensive processing of customer support inquiries
  • Negative customer experience caused by delayed communication of outages

The solutions

  • Development and go-live of individual machine learning models for anomaly detection based on internal metrics from production systems as well as external data
  • Design and deployment of a real-time alerting system notifying all relevant channels (customer support, incident response team) and systems in case of outages via e-mail, SMS, or Teams Webhook
  • The solution also mimics the strategies of the experts to perform root-cause analysis for incident detection
