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.
