Broadcom just unveiled Automation.ai – the industry’s first AI-driven software intelligence platform purpose built to accelerate decision-making across multiple business and technology domains that support digital transformation initiatives.
Automation.ai harnesses the power of advanced machine learning (ML), intelligent automation and internet-scale open source frameworks to transform massive volumes of data from disparate toolsets, providing a unified approach to enterprise decision-making such as:
- AI-driven: Provides a predefined and out of box set of AI-driven analysis, correlation, recommendation and remediation services that are fully automated.
- Open: Ingests AIOps, DevOps, ValueOps, Automation COE domain data from a full-range of software, including Broadcom, third party and open source.
- Always Learning: Continuously validates and improves decisions based on real-world outcomes.
- Extensible: Operates independently or within existing AI and machine learning ecosystems.
- Multi-cloud: Fully containerized Kubernetes-based orchestration on public or private cloud.
As you may have heard, Broadcom also recently completed the acquisition of Terma Software whose solutions model workload dependencies, optimize workloads, enable intelligent SLAs and improve overall operational efficiency, in real-time. As I am responsible for Automation technologies at Broadcom I can honestly say these are truly exciting times.
Terma Software is a global leader for Adaptive Intelligence and Predictive Analytics for Optimizing Workloads through an advanced AIOps platform for workload automation, allowing you to predict and prevent workload issues before they happen, helping you to meet service levels.
This cross platform/cross vendor solution enables you to monitor all your workloads from a single pane of glass. It discovers dependencies across automation providers such as CA 7, AutoSys, Jobtrac, Tidal & IBM mainframe and distributed solutions, allowing companies to improve service delivery through proactive management of SLAs across these automation platforms.
At Broadcom, we understand that it is critical to simplify operational control and this can be a challenge if you use multiple scheduling technologies. Having a single point of view across your entire portfolio and combining this with enhanced workload analytics helps in this simplification. We also understand that having insight into the potential impact of delays to the business enables you to resolve issues before end users and the business are impacted.
Key to Broadcom is what the Terma technology allows us to provide in the future. We believe automation is critical for successful digital transformation and have done so for decades, as you know, this is the lifeblood for any business but is often thought of as old and not transformative.
Terma’s technology enables this change by offering AIOps for Workload Automation, enriching our Automation.ai platform that powers our Digital BizOps solution, and providing actionable workload automation insights from multiple vendors. Ultimately it will improve both service delivery and customer experience. Unified workload management will drive faster results, operational improvement, and increase confidence and trust across IT and the business.
The beauty of the solution is that it is not essential for you to change your workload automation toolset, a decision that for many organizations is put off for far too long because of the perceived business risks of changing scheduling engines. With this, we can offer the advanced SLA management, critical path, dependency discovery and analytics to all, and then use AI/ML to expose previously unseen insights into your operations, allowing for continual improvement and better delivery to the business.
Feel free to join me at a webinar we will be presenting on the subject on the 12thof December at 11AM Eastern Time, so you can see what this can mean to your operations environment. If you are reading my blog after the event, don’t worry; the link will take you to a replay of the webinar, so you will not miss out.
