Fast Caterpillars: Solving the Complexity Crisis in Carrier Automation

blog_fast_caterpillar

A new focus on simplicity and standardization holds the key, says Pravin Mirchandani, CMO, OneAccess.

At the recent Zero-Touch and Carrier Automation Congress in Madrid, I was reminded of a quote from George Westerman of MIT:

“When digital transformation is done right, it’s like a caterpillar turning into a butterfly, but when done wrong, all you have is a really fast caterpillar.”

One of the most debated topics at the show was how to deal with issues of complexity when enabling automation in operators’ networks. The current processes designed to manage these networks have been designed to make human intervention and management relatively efficient. In the new world of automation, however, even minimal human intervention is problematic. Despite the industry’s best efforts, translating complex human decision-making into a computer-readable, algorithm-friendly process remains a real challenge.

Redesigning around simplicity

Indeed multiple speakers at the show agreed that trying to automate a complex set of processes was actually the wrong approach, and that a fresh take was needed. Starting again, to define new, simpler processes which focus on enabling zero-touch provisioning and automation, offers a more logical and achievable route forward.
