Network Automation Maturity: Evolving from Limited to Task Automation

Presented by

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

About this talk

The first step for every network team getting started with network automation is to create automations for individual activities. As network engineers start to investigate automation, their initial thoughts usually revolve around “what” tasks to automate and “how” they can automate those tasks. This is an incredibly helpful and useful first step into automation, and with the right tools and frame of reference, a lot of a network engineer’s daily backlog can be overcome. When these first steps are taken, it’s important to also find ways to effectively manage your automations and engage and collaborate with other team members around these automation assets. In this live webinar, Morgan Stern, VP of Automation Strategy and Rich Martin, Director of Technical Marketing at Itential, will share insights gathered from their time spent working with our customers who have implemented task-based automation successfully, including: • Assessing use cases, automation tools, time, and skills. • Expected benefits of implementing task-based automations. • Required toolset capabilities to successfully manage and run your automations. • Lessons learned from teams who have been successful with task automation. • How Itential can help organize, share, and secure your scripts for extended use. • The perspective of an engineer and what’s needed to evolve your task automation efforts. • The perspective of IT leaders and what’s needed to set your team up for task automation success.
