Understanding Network AIOps and the importance of AI Networking to the enterprise


The Transformative Power of AIOps

In an era where technology is rapidly evolving, Artificial Intelligence for IT Operations (AIOps) stands at the forefront of this transformation. Gartner’s introduction of AIOps marked a significant shift in enterprise IT management, integrating AI and machine learning to automate decision-making and enhance observability in digital business.

It’s crucial to understand that IT Ops and Network AIOps are fundamentally different. While all AIOps offerings across IT share characteristics like anomaly detection, performance analysis, and automation, the specific needs of network operations are distinct. Traditional IT Ops solutions, as included by Gartner in their AIOps category, often lack deep networking solutions, a gap arising from the shift to cloud and microservices architectures.

What is Network AIOps?

Network AIOps diverges significantly from general IT Ops, requiring an in-depth understanding of network-specific protocols, metrics, and behaviors. Effective Network AIOps solutions demand expertise in network-specific data sources and a comprehensive understanding of network constructs, behavior, and state machines.
