From Black Adder to Elon Musk and SpaceX, through to multi-vendor activation and complex processing the most recent AI-IA network and Cortex interview discusses the success strategies needed when approaching the adoption of automation technology. Jonathan Hobday sits down with Seth Adler, Editor to discuss the current automation landscape.
“There’s a quote, which I love from JP Morgan: ‘Go as far as you can see, and then when you get there, you’ll be able to see further,’ it’s a philosophy that we use in automation”
You need to start with the kind of technologies that don’t require you to have a full end to end definition. It’s broken, but that’s how people work. That’s fine. We know bits, and as we get those bits into machines’ hands, then we can learn about the other bits. There’s a quote, which I love from JP Morgan. It was over a hundred years ago, but he said, “Go as far as you can see, and then when you get there, you’ll be able to see further.” And it’s a philosophy that we use in automation. We don’t care that you don’t know everything. That doesn’t matter. Capture what you know, even if it is only those little tasks that we expect you to know, that’s all at a simple level, the hidden layer in your organization that will get you up into that world of doing things like multi-vendor activation, where you can run entire services, and we’ve got customers that are putting up entire network services, from customer all the way through configuration, provisioning, running it to an SLA, life cycling it through for years.
