Maybe not yet but IBM is working on software that can search for problems, find them and fix them without any user help at all. They claim that “self-healing” is the next big thing to hit the computer market and it will be out in about 5 years.

Self healing is cutting edge and not even released for use, but there is already competition. HP, CA, BMC Software, and Symantec are all trying to get products to market as well.

IBM , CA, and BMC have the advantage because they already provide client and server side software.
