Cisco Unveils Industry’s First Predictive Services Powered by AI
Cisco has announced a new portfolio of services designed to put IT departments back in the driver’s seat. Powered by AI, Cisco’s suite of predictive services anticipates IT failures, mitigates risk, reduces maintenance costs, and assists organizations in attaining the necessary skills to transform their businesses. Delivering both advanced predictive and preemptive capabilities, Cisco’s new Business Critical Services and High-value Services offerings will enable organizations to invest more of their IT budgets on technology innovation amid a growing technical skills gap that poses an imminent threat to business continuity and growth.
“Today’s world is moving faster than ever, and to be successful, businesses must have the right blend of IT talent and services,” said Chuck Robbins, chief executive officer, Cisco.“By leveraging AI and machine learning to address critical IT issues, Cisco’s new services offerings will truly help our customers free up time to focus on the growing IT talent gap, and remain competitive into the future.”
More than ever, organizations look to heads of IT to create new revenue streams for their businesses. Yet the shortage of digital skills and the technical skills gap are putting organizations in peril of losing their competitiveness. Cisco’s new suite of predictive services is differentiated by the unique expertise, intelligence, and automation that help minimize the impact of the skills gap and free technical staff to focus on accelerating innovation.
Cisco is launching two new additions to the services portfolio: Business Critical Services and High-value Services. These two new services offer the power and intelligence of AI and machine learning to optimize IT talent, knowledge, and skills and allow organizations to solve their problems first and ultimately get closer to their end user/customer.
