Service Level Enforcement & Charging
In most any system, loads are not created equally. Whether due to special account privileges, special service requirements of a given load, or escalated permissions due to a higher priced service option, loads are associated with unique service delivery levels. Software Defined Anything (SDx) systems must optimize performance and manage general policy enforcement, while simultaneously delivering per-load service levels. Overlaying these requirements, the SDx management system must also evaluate cost implications of the various options which it is considering.
AI has developed unique technology to traverse this complex environment, tracking and optimizing the use of cost-based services and resources while simultaneously juggling the myriad of competing factors. In many cases, this requires intelligent and dynamic SLA-based future reservation of resources to make certain the system is always capability of meeting service level needs in spite of changing loads and environmental conditions. AI solutions allow modeling of costing, budgets, service level escalation, system impacts, allocation prioritization, risk management forecasting, and other factors in optimizing real-world systems.
