A new press release states, “Itential®, the leader in intelligent, multi-domain network automation, today announced Automation Gateway, purpose-built to propel enterprise network automaton and further accelerate network programmability. Itential’s ‘Bring Your Own Automation’ capabilities enable network teams to seamlessly integrate their existing automation efforts and transform scripts into APIs for use in end-to-end network automation workflows within Itential’s Automation Platform. Over 60% of enterprise organizations still utilize an ad-hoc manual and reactive script-based approach to automation, according to upcoming research from Enterprise Management Associates. As network operations moves toward a more software-defined approach, network engineers need to incorporate their existing infrastructure while keeping pace with the adoption of new technologies, without having to sacrifice their current operational uptime.”
The release continues, “Itential’s Automation Gateway utilizes existing investments in network configuration tools and network change scripts to propel network automation projects by incorporating their current efforts into a holistic approach. By implementing an automation solution that can integrate with customers’ existing ecosystem, network teams can focus on expanding automation efforts across multi-domain networks to enable greater network agility in support of current and future digital business requirements. These new capabilities within Itential’s Automation Platform enables: (1) Out of the box support for all types of scripts from Python, C, Bash, Perl, and Ansible Playbooks; providing an integrated and centralized view of all automation efforts for use within the Itential Automation Platform. (2) Dynamic discovery of scripts, providing a centralized and globally available repository within the Itential Automation Platform for enabling script execution in automation workflows via defined group-based access controls for end-to-end network automation.”
