The AI-driven zero-touch automation: market analysis of related technology and use cases for the telecoms industry
This report analyses the use of AI-driven zero-touch1 automation in a telecoms environment, within which it can play a central role in automating complex end-to-end processes. We examine the technology required for zero-touch automation, discuss how this technology will be used and explain what zero-touch will mean for CSPs and vendors.

Analysis and recommendations
Challenge: the complex and dynamic nature of end-to-end processes in the telecoms sector has made ‘zero-touch’ automation challenging
Solution: AI provides a solution for more-complex automation issues and helps to achieve zero-touch end-to-end processing
Solution: AI enables complex processes to become candidates for ZTA by reducing the cost of modelling and by delivering insights and algorithms
Solution: AI can be embedded during the development of applications and processes to replace hard coding with insights on which to act
How is AI applied to zero-touch processes?
There are four main ways that AI enables zero-touch automation to replace manual intervention within a given process
Key component-level integration development and AI infrastructure are being used to build the AI ecosystems that are needed to deliver zero-touch automation
Zero-touch automation requires an abundance of good-quality data to initially model each use case and to be able to continue learning by monitoring outcomes
Why is AI needed to provide zero-touch automation?
AI helps to address complex processes that have numerous decision points and multiple data inputs; it also helps to prevent a significant number of rules variations
Zero-touch automation has limits unless AI technology is applied to it; AI technology has matured sufficiently to deliver its full capabilities in a cost-effective manner
Replicating human intelligence and beyond requires an understanding of the real world in order to reproduce and build on human intelligence
Where is AI being used in zero-touch automation?
Automated monitoring processes for complex data sets are possible when using ML to find exceptions or anomalies within a standard model
Diagnostics and RCA can help to identify problems with the underlying data in order to predict and prevent (or reduce) undesirable outcomes
Zero-touch automation makes more-precise sales and marketing possible, and can help provide market insights at a micro-segmentation level to each user/subscriber
Customer engagement processes have traditionally involved substantial manual intervention; shifting to zero-touch automation requires real-world understanding
