Itential Collaborates with Red Hat to Simplify and Accelerate the Journey Toward Automated Networks for the Enterprise

Collaboration aimed at advancing the evolution of network operations through powerful, easy to use intelligent network automation technologies

ATLANTA, JULY 18, 2018  — Itential, the leader in intelligent network automation, today announced that it is collaborating with Red Hat to help customers simplify and accelerate their journey toward automated networks. Itential is working with Red Hat with a goal of enabling enterprises to advance the evolution of their network operations through its powerful and easy to use intelligent network automation technologies.

“As companies continue to shift toward agile, DevOps management practices to enable IoT and digital transformation, the rapid evolution of the teams and tools supporting those companies’ IT infrastructures is mission-critical,” said Justin Nemmers, general manager of Ansible at Red Hat. “Ansible is a popular open source IT automation technology thanks to its ability to drive down the cost and complexity of deploying and managing both cloud-native and traditional applications across hybrid cloud environments in a way that is simple to adopt, use, and understand. We’re excited to work with Itential to help enhance and expand the use of Ansible within network team environments and assist enterprises in their journey toward network automation.”

According to Gartner, nearly 80% of all enterprise network changes are made manually, and as a result, are 10x slower and 75% more likely to cause outages. Itential believes this is due to the existing fragmented landscape of network automation tools, which are complex and require exotic skillsets to operate and maintain. By collaborating with Red Hat, Itential aims to solve these problems by providing integrated network automation solutions that are not only powerful, but easy to use and flexible enough to address networks of any type.

“At Itential we are laser focused on helping companies evolve their network operations capabilities to enable rapid secure change and advancement of network and application ecosystems,” said Ian Bresnahan, CEO and co-founder at Itential. “We believe Itential’s collaboration with Red Hat has the potential to not only revolutionize enterprise network automation but, also greatly expedite the transformation of the digital enterprise.”

Itential simplifies and automates the journey toward the Modern Network and bridges the gap between IT and networking teams by enabling users to easily build, execute and visualize Network Intelligent Workflows. Itential’s low-code environment provides a vendor agnostic, turnkey solution, connecting network orchestrators and controllers with IT Service Management applications and configuration tools to accomplish closed-loop network automation. Itential’s products are in use today within some of the world’s largest networks, including many of the top service provider and financial services companies throughout the U.S. and abroad.
