AI-BASED ANALYTICS CAN ENSURE THAT WHEN A DEVICE BEGINS TO ACT SUSPICIOUSLY , IT IS AUTOMATICALLY ISOLATED , KEEPING OTHER TRAFFIC SEPARATE AND SECURE .

Harnessing data at the intelligent edge
Morten Illum , EMEA Vice President at Aruba , a Hewlett Packard Enterprise company , shares with Intelligent CIO Middle East how enterprise organisations can successfully unlock the potential of data at the intelligent edge .
Within the next two years , analyst and research firm Gartner predicts that over 50 % of data will be generated at the Edge of networks . As the world recovers from the COVID-19 pandemic , this data will play a big role in helping companies survive and thrive in the new order . We have already seen an unprecedented amount of change over the past couple of months , which has led to many organisations accelerate their Digital Transformation journey – with data sitting at the heart of their strategies .
However , data is a commodity which is not necessarily valuable in and of itself . In order to evolve , organisations need to be able to process and store data securely , they need to analyse and derive insights from it and they need to drive business outcomes from those insights .
To successfully unlock the potential of data at the intelligent edge , organisations must-have a fortified , resilient and secure network in place . With this in mind , here are three network management components that are integral to Digital Transformation ( and therefore data success ) in the post-COVID-19 era .
The huge increase in the number of devices generating data means that network traffic is busier than ever . Today ’ s IT teams require closed-loop , end-to-end access control from the moment devices join the network . However , given the enormous variety of devices connecting to the network , manual human intervention is no longer practical . This is where Artificial Intelligence ( AI ) comes in . 44INTELLIGENTCIOwww www .intelligentcio . .com. com
