Ayehu’s New Advanced Features in NG v1.5 [Webinar Recap]

Author: Guy Nadivi

In response to growing user requests to add more flexibility to the Ayehu NG automation platform, Ayehu has released NG v1.5. This release will significantly expand the scope of what you can automate in your environment, all from a single pane of glass, and we think that makes it a real game changer in the IT orchestration and automation market.

If you’re an existing user of Ayehu NG, or even if you’re just thinking about trying us on for size, you probably know that one of the core strengths of our solution is how easy and quickly you can plug Ayehu into various ITSM platforms, cyber security tools, operating systems, messaging and notification tools, and increasingly chatbots and AI services. Almost all of these integrations can be activated seamlessly without writing a single line of code.

And the purpose of providing you with all these pre-built integrations and connectors that make up our ever-expanding ecosystem, is to simplify your ability to orchestrate automation across any platform in your environment. All from a single pane of glass!

So, here’s what’s really exciting about this new version of NG. We’ve added a “Do It Yourself” capability to allow you to build your own platform-specific activities without the need for Ayehu to do it for you.

From the feedback we’ve received, that’s really going to appeal to those of you who aren’t afraid to roll up your sleeves, do a little coding, and craft your own specific intelligent IT automation activities.

In fact, when you see how easy we’ve made it to build your own activities, we think some of you non-coders might even be tempted to take a crack at it yourself and perhaps fulfill some aspirations on your personal automation wish list.

Without further ado then, let’s dive into what’s new in our latest release of NG, v1.5:

  • Activity Designer – This is the big one. It’s a new feature designed to give users the option to build their own activities, which marks the first time they’re not relying on us to build an activity. You already know we provide an Out-Of-The-Box library of more than 500 no-code, pre-built activities. With the Activity Designer though, customers can now independently develop or modify existing activities in Python, C# or .Net to extract further value through customization that meets specific needs.
  • GitHub Community Repository – Ayehu now has a new community on GitHub that contains more than 100 of Ayehu’s workflow templates, as well as source code for built-in activities. Customers can use this in conjunction with the Activity Designer to create custom activities based on existing pre-built workflows. The GitHub Community Repository also provides free access to other peer-developed workflow templates and activities which have already been created and contributed to the community. 
  • Ayehu Academy Advanced Courses – We now have two new Ayehu Automation Academy courses – Activity Designer Essentials and Advanced Activity Designer. Together, these courses help train and certify developers in creating new activities using the Activity Designer. The Academy has already certified nearly 1,000 IT automation engineers since its inception earlier this year.

Let’s talk a bit more about the Activity Designer.

Typically, when building a workflow you simply drag and drop activities onto a canvas, and position them in the order you want them to execute. There’s no coding, scripting, or programming of any kind required. All you have to do is configure any particular activity by entering some parameters into a popup window, as shown in the image below:

With the new Activity Designer, you can build your own activities from scratch, in Python, C#, or .NET. We believe this will typically be for a system we haven’t integrated yet, perhaps some home-grown in-house application. But it can also be used to create new custom activities for an existing integration, like ServiceNow or SolarWinds. This is a big deal because now organizations will be able to take previously unintegrated systems and incorporate them into enterprise-wide orchestration and automation via Ayehu’s single pane of glass. The Activity Designer interface is shown in the image below:

Ayehu’s GitHub Community Repository marks an expansion of our presence on GitHub’s open-source community, and can be seen at this link: – https://github.com/Ayehu

At the repository, you’ll find:

  • 100+ Ayehu workflow templates
  • Source code for built-in activities

There are many benefits to our users from this new repository, including:

  • Shorter time to value through reuse of existing, pre-built workflows
  • Shorter time to value thru customization of open source activities
  • Free access to peer-developed workflow templates and activities

Here’s an example. If we want to see what kinds of workflow templates are already available for Cisco devices, we can just click on the Cisco category, and drill down to all the workflow templates you can access that are Cisco-specific, as seen in the image below:

These new features are also accompanied by new advanced courses created for the Ayehu Academy, which can be found on our website ayehu.com under the Customers menu.

The two new Ayehu Automation Academy courses are:

  • Activity Designer Essentials
  • Advanced Activity Designer

Together, these courses help train and certify developers in creating new activities using the Activity Designer. 

Ayehu recommends getting certified because your new knowledge will enhance 2 areas of interest:

  • Your organization’s automation capabilities
  • Your own personal professional standing.

Furthermore, as this market continues to grow, we anticipate new income opportunities will be created for Certified Activity Designers. The Academy has already certified about 1,000 IT automation engineers despite only opening earlier this year. That’s a reflection of the growing interest in automation, and if you’re one of those IT automation engineers, you’ve positioned yourself very nicely for the growth curve ahead.

New call-to-action

It’s the End of the IT Service Desk as We Know it (and We Feel Fine)

Ayehu and Rulai team up to turn chatbots into workbots, enabling the self-driving IT service desk

San Jose, CA and Campbell, CA — October 29, 2019 — Ayehu, a leader in intelligent automation, and Rulai today announced a partnership to deliver a self-driving IT issue resolution offering powered by AI. The Rulai integration goes beyond the limitations of traditional chatbot communication capabilities to deliver virtual service agents (VSAs) that complete IT service desk work.

“Let’s face it, people hate calling the service desk, experiencing long waits on IVR and sometimes waiting hours just to get a password reset,” said Gabby Nizri, CEO of Ayehu. “Ayehu and Rulai are disrupting the entire way the IT service desk works in enterprises today. Using the integrated solution, we eliminate the need for employees to call and wait for IT to solve their problems. Our chatbot VSA will perform these tasks, increasing productivity and employee satisfaction.”

IT service desk operation is extremely resource-intensive, with as much as 85% of the cost being labor according to some studies. Most of this work involves menial, repetitive tasks, that could easily be automated. This has led to the rise of chatbots, which can reduce the amount of human interaction considerably.

However, chatbots are often limited to basic interactions such as pointing the user to non-actionable static information pages, or at best, creating a well-formatted request that is then sent to a human operator for execution. Most chatbots use rule-based decision trees, have poor natural language understanding and limited ability to manage an ongoing dialog or execute a task. As a result, they are easily confused, and customers can become frustrated.

To address both limitations, Ayehu and Rulai have joined forces to create a solution that actually does the work.

Combining Rulai’s Level 3 Conversational Computing Platform with Ayehu’s intelligent automation engine, companies can turn chatbots into a Virtual Service Agent (VSA) – a workbot that has the ability to not only receive and communicate requests but complete and resolve them as well.  

Rulai’s platform allows companies to build AI-based conversational chatbots that can manage non-linear dialogue, and that require no code to develop or deploy. Ayehu provides an intelligent automation engine that receives user intent from Rulai, and acts on it. No code is required to build workflows that integrate with the widest range of applications, changing the IT service desk experience for the end-users.

“Improving employee experience has become one of the top goals for CIOs,” said Marc Vanlerberghe, CEO of Rulai. “We live in an instant gratification economy. Like never before, employees demand fast, frictionless engagement with companies. The combination of our Level 3 Conversational Computing Platform and Ayehu’s intelligent automation platform creates a delightful and frictionless IT experience, available 24/7, 365 days a year, vastly improving the employee experience.”

By running the service desk autonomously customers can achieve as much as a 35% cost reduction, while reducing MTTR by 98% which makes the end user satisfaction higher than ever.

Ayehu’s Rulai integration is available immediately. Please contact sdr@ayehu.com.

The New Wave of Hybrid AI in the Automation Era – Insights from the Experts

Over the past few years, Gartner has made some pretty bold predictions surrounding artificial intelligence and automation technology. These include such projections as the generation of $2.9 trillion in business value, the recovery of 6.2 billion hours of worker productivity and the creation of some 2.3million new jobs. All of this is expected to take place over the next couple of years, if not sooner.

Whatever you believe about AI, one thing’s for sure – it’s not going away any time soon.In fact, all signs indicate that the not-so-distant future will look a lot different from what we are used to today, with machines performing not only the physical work of humans, but also the thinking, planning, strategizing and decision-making as well.

At Ayehu, we’re always trying to stay a step ahead of the curve in terms of technology and its capabilities. Such was the purpose of our recent panel discussion entitled The New Wave of Hybrid AI in the Automation Era, during which we sat down with several AI and automation thought leaders, including:

We asked these experts to take a look back at some of the emerging trends observed and experienced in 2018 and offer a glimpse into the future. We also asked each of our esteemed panelists to go out on a limb and make a bold prediction for 2019.

Here’s a little taste of what we uncovered.

Evolution in IT Operations

One of the first topics touched upon by our own Brian Boeggeman centered on the creation of automation centers of excellence (COE) and the automation engineers that are driving adoption and proliferation of automation within the enterprise.

“We saw a trend taking place this year where there’s a lot of focus put on the creation on these centers of excellence to really drive automation,” said Brian. “Automation is clearly seen as a business imperative and a clear necessity in order to orient the next phase of enterprise operations, where efficiencies can be uncovered and realized across the business.”

He continued, “Those automation engineers effectively become the change agents within the organizations to drive that cultural change within the enterprise. As we engage with many of our customers, we’re continuing to see that as a high focus for them actually making investments to build out these COEs to push across the entire organization and enterprise as a whole.”

Brian also talked about the acceleration and creation of new services through automation and AI, pointing out that automation has emerged as a key strategy to achieve the delicate balance between innovation and operational excellence.

How AI and ML are Impacting the Adoption of Automation in the Enterprise  

Next, we turned the floor over to Manish Kothari, who has been involved with artificial intelligence and machine learning since the 70s. Manish opened his statement by pointing how critical data is to extracting the full value of AI.

“I think we’re starting to see a very big transformation take place across all sectors from agriculture, to consumer, and especially in IT where the need is arguably one of the highest,” Manish commented.

He went on to say: “If you are at the IT infrastructure side, you are, actually for one of the first times, really in a position to become an enabler rather an impediment to innovation.”

Manish also shared his insight on what enterprise managers who have never dealt with AI should know before deploying it and how he envisions the roles of managers changing once AI begins to get a foothold.

Find out everything that Manish had to say here.

Top Reasons Organizations Should Automate IT Operations

The next topic on the agenda was turned over to Andrew Brill of Change Healthcare, who was asked to share his thoughts on the top reasons for automating ITOps.

He was quick to point out that while the initial reasons typically revolve around cost savings and efficiency, some really exciting things can begin to happen,particularly in terms of an organization’s ability to remain compliant and consistent in its operating practices. Automation essentially becomes a force multiplier, saving users time and skyrocketing productivity and facilitating innovation.

“When we transform our staff who were doing the more robotic functions and eliminate that from their daily work, it allows them to start thinking about how we advance the organization, how we build better engineered solutions, how we work with partners that add the most value,” Andrew points out.

“Their brains are more actively working on the things that solve business problems as opposed to the functional tasks and work that perhaps we’ve had them do over the past ten years.”

Check out the playback to hear more and learn what Andrew believes are the biggest benefits of automation.

The Impact of AI on Digital Transformation

The discussion then turned to Ross Tisnovsky of McKinsey who was asked what kind of impact he believed technologies such as intelligent automation and AI having on IT digital transformation efforts in the enterprise.

In his response, Ross shared how he approaches the adoption of new technology. In particular, he highlighted the main things that users want from IT which, in his opinion, include:

  • A workspace for collaboration and enhanced productivity
  • Improved decision-making
  • Support for business innovation
  • High efficiency at a minimal cost

According to Ross, the solution to these needs requires a hybrid of AI, automation and human decision making.

“Automation works on both sides of the picture and so does the artificial intelligence. In other words, it’s likely to become part of anything we do on the business side today.”

Watch the on-demand discussion to discover the Ross’ most intriguing thoughts on hybrid AI from his real-world experience.

Key Insights and Future Outlook

During the final portion of the panel discussion, the experts weighed in on such points as:

  • The role of humans in automation adoption
  • Biggest challenges to automating IT operations
  • Skills needed to automate effectively
  • Critical KPIs/success metrics to focus on at different stages of the IT digital transformation journey
  • What enterprise IT leadership should be doing right now to start preparing for the changes to come
  • Bold predictions for AI in 2019 (and beyond)

Don’t miss out on what was certainly one of the timeliest and most informative panel discussions we’ve ever had the pleasure of hosting. Tune in to the full recording today!
