Therefore, no longer changing workloads and employee connectivity is an option, but a necessity. In comes, AI as the saving grace.

Most of the developed companies are looking at these AI assistants as a part of their IT team now. These have been able to assist the IT teams to simplify the complexity when it comes to the IT networks.
Teach Employees about AI & its benefits
The trends suggest that the use of AI for networking is going to increase in the upcoming years,
But certain employees might think of this as a job-threatening technology. Do not let them perceive it that way. Teach them that it is less of a threat and more of a team player. AI is gradually becoming much of a critical aspect in providing users with an exceptional experience.
Amidst the misunderstanding of AI taking over their jobs, some employees are understanding its importance in fixing complex issues. When a company is newly adopting AI to their environment, the authorities should give the opportunity for their employees to express their ideas. They should make sure everyone is on the same page while going forward with AI. They should make the employees understand that AI doesn’t eliminate jobs, instead make the jobs easier for them.
Investing in AI assistants and making the employees vigilant on AI is wise if an organization is opting to move forward with a self-driving network. That is how you prepare the employees and everyone involved in your business to face the uncertainties which are inevitable.
