IDC at Interop 2019 - Leveraging AI-Enabled Network Automation from the Datacenter to the IoT Edge

May 21, 2019 - Las Vegas, Nevada, United States

Enterprise networks today are under pressure with more users, devices and applications than ever before relying on the network for essential connectivity to a wide range of endpoints. In response, organizations are increasingly interested in new network architectures and advanced management tools that leverage machine learning and artificial intelligence to create self-driving or autonomous networks. These advancements are also significantly changing the way enterprises rely on services from their partners and vendors. Successfully executing on these technology advancements will bring myriad benefits in the areas of deployment, management, security and business enablement.

In this session IDC will explore how the network continues to evolve, and address a host of relevant trends:

  • Why digital transformation requires network transformation
  • How machine learning and artificial intelligence tools are extending centralized automation platforms from the datacenter to the enterprise campus over SD-WANs and to the IoT edge
  • The increased interest in cloud-based network management and analytics, leading to self-driving or autonomous networks
  • How to design, integrate and manage network transformation in this new complex environment that will include attention to people, process, tools and methodologies

This session will examine not only how enterprises can embrace these trends, but also how vendors and service providers intend to deliver new network services based on intelligent automation platforms.
