Know Normal Integration Guide

Know Normal is a SaaS provider that serves as a source of context for your IT Operations data and performance metrics. Know Normal creates and maintains dynamically-calculated baselines for your critical operational metrics, then applies that baseline across custom dashboards and reports. Know Normal offers an interactive Analytics Workbench and allows you obtain “big data analytics” while avoiding the heavy-lifting and lengthy learning curves associated with either “big data” or “analytics”.
