The Ayehu Story
We were founded in 2007 with the vision of liberating IT staff from routine, repetitive operational tasks through quick and simple automation, using bots.
13 years later, our software robots have matured and we are proud to say, that they are quite intelligent now.
How it all started...
Picture this. It’s 2am when your major mission-critical application suddenly goes down. You're fast asleep, and instead of someone waking you up and calling you in, an intelligent software robot is taking care of everything on your behalf.
Back in 1998, this was a dream of our founders, Gabby Nizri and Yaron Levy. As then-managers of a 24/7 operations center, the two friends dealt with these 2am calls almost every night. They soon began noticing that the vast majority of these escalations were so routine and repetitive, a robot could handle them to put out fires. The lightbulb came on and hence, the concept of Ayehu was born.
Today, thanks to this epiphany, hundreds of enterprises across the globe are leveraging IT process automation to streamline operations, reduce human errors, maximize uptime, deliver better SLAs and cut costs.
Most importantly, those 2am calls have become a thing of the past for countless IT managers. And to Gabby and Yaron, that just might be the most rewarding accomplishment of all.
