January 29, 2019 / JAMES KOBIELUS
Cisco Systems Inc. is investing heavily in tooling to automate network and resource management up and down the cloud-computing stack. The company’s announcements today at its Cisco Live event in Barcelona show that it remains deeply committed to leveraging artificial intelligence to differentiate its offerings in the multicloud management arena. With its latest announcements, Cisco has extended its AI-driven intent-based networking technology to automate assurance of network connectivity, service levels, security, application segmentation, compliance and other policies across a wider range of multicloud and edge networking environments. Delivering what many call AIOps, intent-based networking is Cisco’s agile approach for maintaining service levels across distributed data centers.
