Juniper IBM CloudNetworking vendor Juniper Networks and IBM Services announced a seven-year, $325 million agreement this week through which IBM will help enhance Juniper’s infrastructure, applications and IT services.

As part of the agreement, IBM Services will use IBM Services Platform with Watson to help manage support systems including data and voice networks, data centers and the help desk.

Juniper will also use IBM AI technology to reduce costs and create a more agile IT environment, thereby enhancing its journey to the cloud. “To facilitate this, IBM will introduce the ‘Factory Development’ concept for application management, which uses automation and cognitive tools to drive efficiency,” ARN reports.

Integrating cloud solutions with Juniper’s existing IT investments “gives them the opportunity to generate more value from existing infrastructure, along with helping them manage strategic services that are critical to their business”, said Martin Jetter, senior vice president of IBM Global Technology Services.
