Artificial Intelligence (AI) answers, not just the data related queries but it also offers actionable insights to your business stakeholders, operations staff, and development teams, says Praveen Mahajan, Regional Director- India, Dynatrace, in an interaction with Rakesh Roy of Elets News Network (ENN).
How important is the role of AI in today’s complex business environment and deployments?
Indian organisations are shifting from traditional, tactical and tool-centric data and analytics projects to strategic, modern and architecture-centric data and analytics programmes. Many Organisations that have enabled AI at the enterprise level are increasing operational efficiency, making faster more informed decisions and innovating new products and services. In IT operations, the traditional monitoring approach of watching dashboards, responding to alerts, and manually analysing data sets doesn’t work anymore. But artificial intelligence can absorb terabytes of data and make sense of it instantaneously. AI automates all the “heavy lifting”—all the discovery and analysis that take teams of experts hours or days, AI does in milliseconds—to proactively identify problems and pinpoint the underlying root cause.

Self-driving IT isn’t just a buzzword anymore. More and more companies are shifting their IT operations to make them autonomous. Today’s hyper-dynamic, highly distributed application environments have gotten too complex and move too fast. The volume, velocity, and variety of information are simply more than humans are able to keep up with using traditional tools.
How do you see the India market in terms of adoption of newer technologies, especially AI? What are the sectors that you are targeting?
India organisations always have a positive mindset towards adopting new technology. The Small and Midsize Business (SMB) segment is more attuned to the benefits and challenges of the many new technologies, eg. Cloud, furthermore, the maturity of the ecosystem is less of a deterrent to the SMB segment. This makes the SMB segment ideal to approach as an initial adopter of these new technologies.
