Network administrators and engineers function as "human middleware" for their monitoring tools, according to Shamus McGillicuddy, Senior Analyst at EMA Research. Skilled humans still need to do much of the heavy lifting in terms of analyzing data.
That's the problem holding back many network operations teams from achieving greater productivity. But there's hope! EMA recently bestowed its Innovator's Award on ExtraHop's Addy machine learning offering for its ability to remove much of the burden from human operators.
"ExtraHop Addy is a service that learns everything about how an individual network behaves and correlates this behavior with events. Network managers can think of it as an intelligent co-pilot for the network, with the potential for it to evolve into an autopilot," writes McGillicuddy in the report, which you can download here.
ExtraHop will host a webinar with EMA on November 29, where we'll discuss how machine learning can help under-resourced network teams do more with less.
