How to Apply DevOps Source Control & Promotion Principles to Network Automations
Morgan Stern, VP of Automation Strategy at Itential & Mitch Veazy, Automation Engineer at Itential
About this talk
Networking teams have been able to accelerate their ability to provide network services by focusing on new initiatives that include CI/CD pipeline integration and infrastructure as code. This has improved both their efficiency and accuracy of network changes. However, they’re now trying to take the next logical step – adopting DevOps principles and processes and applying them to their automation infrastructure components.
As teams progress into this stage, they learn that a growing automation asset base (workflows, scripts, templates, etc.) presents the same challenges as overseeing a DevOps code base. It requires careful management, source control, versioning, and consistent deployment models to ensure the overall automation infrastructure is performing properly and in a scalable fashion. This means network teams should start managing their automation assets like DevOps teams manage their source code.
In this webinar, Morgan Stern, VP of Automation Strategy at Itential, and Mitch Veazy, Automation Engineer at Itential, will demonstrate a proven framework on how to implement a CI/CD approach for automation and orchestration assets leveraging the Itential Automation Platform (IAP) and open source components. They will also share and demo techniques and best practices for automation design and implementation that will enable teams to maximize the benefits of incorporating these principles into their automation development processes.
