A new press release reports, “Itential, the leader in intelligent network automation, today announced the availability of Itential 6.0, the first low-code network automation solution for the modern network. With advanced capabilities for supporting the data-models associated with orchestrators and controllers, DevOps tools and cloud-orchestrators; Itential 6.0 avoids the silos traditionally associated with managing the network by automating activities that cross multiple domains, platforms and organizations. In today’s rapidly evolving IT landscape, organizations are tasked with maintaining existing infrastructure while simultaneously adopting and integrating new cloud-based technology. However, network technologies have evolved at a slower pace and traditional methods of managing the network, through manual command line interfaces (CLI), are unable to scale and keep up with the pace of emerging technologies coming to fruition.”
Chris Wade, Chief Technology Officer at Itential, commented, “We are entering a new era of network innovation where a modern network is needed to support and enable digital transformation… Itential’s model-centric approach is unique in its flexible and scalable low-code interface that allows for advanced logic and simplified programmability. By democratizing today’s increasingly complex networks and saving time and money in the process, Itential 6.0 is making the journey toward the modern network attainable in ways not previously possible.”
The release adds, “Itential 6.0 introduces numerous advanced capabilities for operationalizing network management with: (1) Low-Code Automation: Itential 6.0 removes the skills gap issue that commonly blocks automation efforts by exposing modeled devices and services, functionality from integrated controllers and orchestrators, and pre-built network intelligence as reusable tasks and form components via the Itential Workflow Builder. (2) Modeling & Template Support: Provides enhanced support to federate YANG, Ansible YAML and TOSCA. Itential 6.0 abstracts the complexity of these platforms from the user by exposing the components within each model in an easy to use, drag and drop environment that can be utilized in network intelligent forms and workflows.”
