Itential Automation Platform Features & Capabilities
Network automation software for physical, virtual and cloud networks.
Itential removes the skills gap that commonly blocks network automation efforts by exposing pre-built network activities as reusable tasks and form components to easily drag-and-drop to create network automation workflows.
Tailor the platform to meet the requirements of your current business processes and use cases. Start with automating basic operations tasks and leverage the full power of our platform for future growth towards a modern network.
Itential’s “API first” approach fuels integration with open source projects like OpenDaylight (ODL), Open Network Automation Platform (ONAP) and Juniper’s Tungsten Fabric quickly and easily as well as incorporation of those tools into network automation workflows.
Itential’s out-of-the box, built-in network intelligence enables users to easily drag-and-drop forms and templates specific to network functions to accelerate the automation of network changes and activities.
Itential’s self-service catalog exposes network automations to more departments by allowing specific roles to execute certain tasks, start & stop or schedule recurring automations.
Itential provides enhanced support to federate YANG, YAML and TOSCA modeling languages, by abstracting the complexity from the user by exposing the components within each model in an easy to use, drag and drop environment.
Itential provides a number of pre-built automations that customers can leverage to rapidly adopt automation for specific use cases. These artifacts are self-contained, and include all the relevant documentations, files, scripts, dependencies, and logical components that are needed to execute the automation.
Itential enables users to easily create closed loop automation workflows with tasks that automate checks on the network, executes and validates the task, to ensure that it is performing as intended, determining business goals without user input.
Itential is purpose-built for today’s complex, heterogenous networks. From cloud-based networks, to branch, to data center networks and from NFV to distributed WANs – Itential includes the features that you need for even the most difficult, large enterprise and service provider class network automation projects.
Itential’s event-driven automation capabilities can trigger automation task based upon notifications from several event systems such as Kafka or NETCONF, ensuring constant network configuration, assurance and compliance and automatically remediating known issues without the need for manual interaction.
Role-based access control provides unprecedented flexibility and control over permissions to components and data within Itential, ensuring that even the most stringent security requirements can be met.
Users are able to automatically sign in to the Itential Automation Platform using Single Sign On through OpenIDConnect.
Enhanced active/active architecture allows for dynamic scaling, while mitigating downtime as your automation environment grows, providing reliability that meets the most demanding requirements.
