Atlanta, GA – Itential, an innovator in network automation solutions, today announced it will present expert tips and recommended open-sourced tools to help organizations advance their network automation practices at the North American Network Operators Group (NANOG 72) conference in Atlanta this month. Itential Network Automation Strategies Director Patrick Moore will lead the session, “Network Automation: Do I Need Expensive Tools To Do Meaningful Automation,” Feb. 20, 11:10 a.m. in the Loews Atlanta Hotel Ellington Ballroom.
Moore’s presentation will cover automation domains, configuration management use cases, a sample architecture and recommended open source tooling for network automation. Additionally, participants will see several case studies for configuration backup, configuration differential and restore, and MOP automation that will enable them to attempt similar implementations on their own.
Before and after the session that day, Itential will host a breakfast and lunch for conference attendees where the company will showcase its new solutions for simplifying network automation and collect market research from attendees on the state of automation and orchestration in their organizations.
