Artificial Intelligence is making its way towards IT Service Management. First incarnations of AI in ITSM tools are being implemented, tested, and evolved. The use cases of AI in ITSM are still limited. Many vendors of ITSM tools focus on using AI for simple tasks such as incident categorization which already now could be done with key word-based automation.
Chat bots for IT Service Desks are emerging, however with limited or none integration to the knowledge of ITSM tools. Machine learning of bots is still very much of a supervised nature and requires intensive training by experts. Natural language processing is getting better at understanding intent of users, however are often limited to serving customers in one language only, especially in English instead of a wide range of European languages for which a variety of local executions are emerging. However, AI for ITSM will be a reality in the years to come impacting many of the capabilities of ITSM tools.
Over the next few days we will be publishing a series of short articles written by our VP of Products, Peter Schneider. The areas which will be covered in the coming posts are:
Thursday: Robotic Process Automation, AI-Assisted Issue Resolution & Machine Learning for Visual Workflow Automation
Friday: Predictive Maintenance & Identity Theft Protection
Monday: Self-Service Powered by AI & Natural Language Processing for Conversations
Tuesday: Roadmap towards an All-AI ITSM World
We will also be hosting a webinar on Tuesday the 27th of November, where Peter will be discussing the topic of AI with one of our key partners, ultimate.ai. You can find out more about the webinar and register from the link below.
