Anomaly Detector

An AI service that helps you foresee problems before they occur

Boost your business systems’ reliability with early problem detection

Easily embed anomaly detection capabilities into your apps so users can quickly identify problems. Through an API, Anomaly Detector Preview ingests time-series data of all types and selects the best-fitting detection model for your data to ensure high accuracy. Customize the service to detect any level of anomaly and deploy it wherever you need it most. Azure is the only major cloud provider that offers anomaly detection as an AI service.

Powerful inference engine looks at your time-series data set and automatically selects the right algorithm to maximize accuracy for your scenario.

Automatic detection eliminates the need for labeled training data. Save time and stay focused on fixing problems as soon as they surface.

Customizable settings let you fine-tune sensitivity to potential anomalies based on your business’s risk profile.

Speed your time to insights

Fast-track your problem solving with simple setup in the Azure portal and real-time anomaly detection. All it takes is three lines of code.

Detect problems for virtually any scenario

There are many types of time-series data—and no one algorithm fits them all. Anomaly Detector looks at your time-series data set and automatically selects the best algorithm from the model gallery to ensure high accuracy for your specific scenario: business incidents, monitoring IoT device traffic, managing fraud, responding to changing markets, and more.
