Insights from ASLAN Congreso 2024

Data resiliency and artificial intelligence (AI) are critical topics on the table of enterprise IT and networking leaders. Data resiliency protects against data disruptions, maintaining accessibility and integrity, while AI optimizes these processes through intelligent automation and predictive analytics. Together, they fortify cloud environments against evolving threats and complexities, driving innovation and operational excellence in digital infrastructures.

On April 17-18th, the ASLAN Congreso took place in Madrid, attracting participants with its showcase of cutting-edge technologies critical for digital transformation. Naturally, AI emerged as a central theme, with the event featuring insightful conversations on the integration of artificial intelligence and advanced cloud solutions. Representing InterCloud, Alejandro Gutiérrez Millán delivered two presentations focused on data resiliency and AI.

In this blog we summarize the key findings from the event and how InterCloud is poised to support enterprises to respond to the challenges faced.

Navigating data resiliency and sovereignty

In the dynamic realm of cloud computing, ensuring resilient connectivity while upholding data sovereignty is paramount. The discussion at ASLAN Congreso around "Data & Resilience" shed light on pivotal trends shaping this domain. From stringent testing protocols ensuring swift recovery to the adoption of multi-cloud strategies, businesses navigate a complex terrain to fortify their digital infrastructures.

Emerging connectivity imperatives demand robust network architectures capable of withstanding systemic incidents and supporting critical applications across diverse locations. The emphasis on dedicated network infrastructures underscores the importance of maintaining control and sovereignty over data pathways.

Amidst these challenges, experts like InterCloud offer comprehensive connectivity solutions, global reach, neutrality, and robust security measures. With InterCloud, businesses navigate cloud connectivity complexities with confidence, setting new standards for resilience and sovereignty in the digital age, guided by our team of experts.

Revolutionizing operations with AI

The convergence of Artificial Intelligence and automation is reshaping business operations, resulting in significant efficiency gains and strategic improvements to cloud platforms and network management. AI's proactive capabilities enable early detection of hardware failures and system errors, avoiding outages and minimizing downtime, thereby enhancing business continuity and reducing maintenance costs.

Moreover, AI is revolutionizing network performance through dynamic bandwidth adjustments and predictive analytics, optimizing resource utilization and improving user experiences. It is projected to reduce human errors in network security by 40% by 2026 according to Gartner, bolstering security frameworks with early detection of malicious behaviors and the implementation of Zero Trust models.

As AI continues to fill digital strategies, it proves to be a transformative force, not only optimizing operations but also establishing new standards for security and efficiency in the digital landscape. The inevitable increase in the volumes of data produced as a result of embracing AI also means enterprises need to optimize the way they manage network traffic across their business, including how they move data from and to the cloud.

InterCloud’s expertise in supporting enterprises with crafting optimized network connectivity infrastructures ensures that companies are able to embrace the shifting pressures their network is placed under as a result of the additional traffic, computing and storage requirements.
