CHENNAI: Infosys has launched a new Artificial Intelligence (AI) tool that the IT major claims will revolutionize the way companies manage complex information technology systems. ‘Mana’, the AI tool, can optimize mundane maintenance of IT systems, saving substantial operating expenditure for firms and freeing up human resources to innovate.
CEO Vishal Sikka, who has been at the announced the system at the firm’s Confluence conference in San Francisco. “If we can bring automation to do better things we can already do, then we can focus on innovation,” he said, adding that Infosys has been doing that by using Mana in maintenance and operation of the complex systems, thereby freeing up resources to “reinventing the landscape” in which they operate.
Systems like these, said Sikka in the buildup to the announcement, will maintain and operate a complex landscape, codify and capture knowledge that sits in business processes, helping turn focus on improving processes and implementing “Zero Distance” between end user and the firm.
