AI is more than just a buzzword in the IT landscape. AI, or “artificial intelligence,” otherwise known as “intelligent automation” has become an essential part of any modern organization. Even if an organization has a skilled IT team in place, the need for new applications, services, tools and technologies increases the complexity of IT Operations teams’ competencies and dedicated skills needed to manage and maintain such complex environments.
We’re seeing a shift in the balance between the human workforce and artificial intelligence. Now, AI can help automate tasks within IT operations like data monitoring, incident response, root cause analysis, service and change requests, and prediction and optimization of resource utilization. The goal is of course to improve efficiency, accuracy, and speed while reducing the burden on human IT staff. This can lead to reduced downtime, improved performance, and faster resolution of issues.
BigFix’s new Runbook AI is a new add-on to the BigFix Lifecycle which is an intelligent runbook automation product that mimics human intelligence to simplify and automate resolution lifecycle of any IT task.
Unlike other solutions that limit AI to events correlation, data analysis and incident pattern recognition that can predict potential outages, BigFix’s Runbook AI leverages capabilities for AI to contextualize the type of IT task, identify and recommend a remediation action against a large catalog of IT Automation runbooks and deploy it to the relevant machine. The ultimate goal is achieving end-to-end automation of any IT Operation task, being it an incident that occurred on a server or a change or service request at infrastructure or application level.
