London, UK - 5th May 2022 - NTT Ltd., a world-leading global technology services provider, today announced its partnership with Grok, a leading SaaS Artificial Intelligence Operations provider, to help organizations realize new advantages and improved experiences across their network through AI and machine learning. Early client deployments of the network platform show a 90% reduction in the number of activities that require manual intervention, resulting in a 50% improvement in speed to identify incidents, and a 50% improvement in time to repair.
Combining NTT's AI-driven network apps, deep insights into network events, and anomaly detection with Grok’s AI and machine learning operations platform provides clients with a rapid path to adopting advanced operational features for their networks. No-touch learning capabilities and real-time performance data analysis in network behaviour deliver rapid client value, with the application of AI, providing exponential benefits to the network's overall performance.

Higher levels of network health and exceptional client experiences are increasingly vital to modernizing business operations and supporting digital transformation strategies across cloud, hybrid workplace models, IoT, and other applications.
