Artificial Intelligence Is Set To Change The Face Of IT Operations

Artificial Intelligence will have a profound impact on the IT industry. The Machine Learning algorithms and models that bring AI to the forefront get only better with data. If these algorithms can learn from existing medical reports, and help doctors with diagnosis, the same can be used to improve IT operations. After all, enterprise IT deals with humongous data acquired from servers, operating systems, applications and users. These datasets can be used for creating ML models that assist system administrators and DevOps teams and IT support departments

Here are a few areas of enterprise IT that AI will significantly impact.

Log Analysis 

Analyzing logs is the most obvious use case for AI-driven operations. Every layer of the stack – hardware, operating systems, servers, applications – generates the data stream that can be collected, stored, processed, and analyzed by ML algorithms. Today this data is used by the IT team to perform audit trails and root cause analysis (RCA) of an event caused due to a security breach or a system failure. Traditional log management platforms such as Splunk, Elasticsearch, Data Dog, and New Relic are augmenting their platforms with Machine Learning. By bringing AI to log analysis, IT can proactively find anomalies in the systems before a failure is reported.

Having sensed the opportunity in bringing ML to log management, a few startups are building AI-driven log analysis platforms. These intelligent tools can correlate data from networking gear, servers and applications to pinpoint the issue in real-time.

Going forward, the software will become smart enough to self-diagnose and self-heal to recover from failures. ML algorithms will be embedded right into the source of data including operating systems, databases, and application software.
