NTT and Grok team up to transform the network with Artificial Intelligence-designed, data-driven operations
Dimension Data’s parent company, NTT Ltd., a world-leading global technology services provider, today announced its partnership with Grok, a leading SaaS Artificial Intelligence Operations provider, to help organizations realize new advantages and improved experiences across their network through AI and machine learning.
Early client deployments of the network platform show a 90 per cent reduction in the number of activities that require manual intervention, resulting in a 50 per cent improvement in speed to identify incidents, and a 50 per cent improvement in time to repair.
Combining NTT’s AI-driven network apps, deep insights into network events and anomaly detection with Grok’s AI and machine learning operations platform provides clients with a rapid path to adopting advanced operational features for their networks. No-touch learning capabilities and real-time performance data analysis in network behaviour deliver rapid client value, with the application of AI, providing exponential benefits to the network’s overall performance.
The ever increasing demand for connectivity is challenging legacy systems and driving the need for more intelligent and innovative networks. Higher levels of network health and exceptional client experiences are increasingly vital to modernizing business operations and supporting digital transformation strategies across cloud, hybrid workplace models, IoT, and other applications.
“Technology and operational techniques have been through many fundamental shifts, but the one constant is how critical the network is to the business,” said Amit Dhingra, Executive Vice President of Network Services, NTT Ltd. “Our clients could not operate without their networks. NTT’s network services are designed to deliver the very best levels of operational management with leading advanced capabilities, for which we were recently recognized as Leader for Network Services by Gartner.
