Traditional OSS has focused on point solutions that provide specific functions in an attempt to automate networks. This approach has failed to live up to its promise. The result is pockets of automation that engineers must “swivel chair” between to perform their jobs. The promise of automation is “Zero Touch”, but the traditional approach just doesn’t deliver on this promise. The time for change is now.
The Itential approach is to leverage the capabilities of programmability to automate your network. This means not just adding tools that perform isolated tasks, but instead creation of applications that cut across domains to meet your day to day operational needs. We understand the activities required to manage your network and know that those don’t always fit nicely into a traditional OSS domain, so we develop our solutions accordingly.
