Intro to the Network Automation Maturity Model: How to Assess Where You Are

Presented by

Morgan Stern, VP of Automation Strategy and Rich Martin, Director of Technical Marketing at Itential

About this talk

Overall adoption of network automation and orchestration has grown steadily in the past few years, but within and across an organization, the rate of adoption can vary greatly. Clear patterns have begun to emerge. Individuals begin with scripts to automate tasks. Those can then grow into larger automations, usually with team-wide participation, and in some cases evolve into end-to-end orchestrations and self-service. As the approach to automation evolves, its benefits can expand in scope across the organization. Based on direct experience working with hundreds of teams and the observations of thousands of projects across the community, Itential experts have developed the Network Automation & Orchestration Maturity Model. The purpose of the model is to define consistent stages that can be used to measure progress in automation and orchestration teams and initiatives, which will help engineers and business leaders alike to maximize the impact of automation and orchestration. In this live webinar, Morgan Stern, VP of Automation Strategy and Rich Martin, Director of Technical Marketing at Itential, will walkthrough: • Why maturity models matter in emerging technology areas. • How engineers and teams can use the maturity model to improve their successes in automation. • How business leaders can use the maturity model to measure their current capabilities and improve their long-term automation strategies.
