Why I Joined
Posted on Monday, July 10th, 2023 by Scot Wilson

AI is all over the news and as a kid of the 80s I’m waiting for the headline that Skynet has become self-aware. So, is it time prep and build my backyard bunker for the dystopian future that lies ahead? Or maybe this future Skynet will just know what groceries I’m most likely to order next week? I suppose the changes AI will bring to our life fall somewhere in between. While we think about all the possibilities, something is for certain, the network needs AI. That’s why I’m at Augtera.

Tackling the Elephant in the Room: Automation of Network Operations 
Posted on Wednesday, April 26th, 2023 by Augtera

Augtera founder and CEO Rahul Aggarwal recently spoke about “AI Driven Automation of Network Operations” at MPLSSDAINETWORLD23. In this blog we will cover some of the key points from his presentation.  Digital transformation has been a major focus in driving innovation and great change across entire enterprises and their IT infrastructure. One area of IT, however, that remains largely unaltered is network operations. While NetOps teams certainly have access to a number of network monitoring tools and solutions today, most of those tools still rely on highly reactive and manual processes.
