Self-diagnosing and correcting systems
In 2024, we will advance toward developing self-healing technologies. This initiative is geared towards creating systems that not only diagnose and correct issues autonomously but also proactively prevent potential problems, thus reducing downtime and enhancing overall system reliability.
AI-driven customer interaction
Enhancing AI capabilities for a more intuitive and personalized support experience remains a priority. We plan to further refine AI's role in customer interactions, making these interactions more natural and efficient. The integration of advanced AI techniques, such as natural language processing, will play a huge role in achieving this goal.
Building upon our 2023 initiatives, we aim to embed more proactive threat detection and mitigation strategies, including advanced vulnerability scanning and Patch Management capabilities. This focus is in line with the growing importance of cybersecurity in every aspect of IT management.
