Today’s Network Integration Challenges
New technologies and capabilities are becoming available at a rate that far surpasses the rate that IT integration teams and standard bodies can accommodate. Automation systems that are hard coded to specific technologies or rely on a vendor to model and build themselves are limited to a single domain or technology, Today’s modern infrastructure has become a multi-technology, and multi-domain network. Point solutions are effective in their place, but more and more network challenges require tools that scale across technologies to solve multi-domain problems.

Itential’s No-Code Integration, Federation, & Data Transformation Capabilities
Itential’s API-first, integration approach to network automation and orchestration is redefining how we manage complex, distributed networks. The Itential Automation Platform is the only solution that can integrate with any network (physical, virtual, and cloud) and any IT system, and transform the data into a common language (JSON) delivering a unified, real-time federated view of the resources and data. Our patented approach simplifies network automation in that users do not need to learn multiple technology types and can reduce time and effort in deploying, managing, and maintaining network infrastructure.
Components of Itential’s Integration Model
- Southbound – Itential easily connects to any network technology, device, or controller.
- East/West – Itential provides tools to translate and transform data from a diverse set of network and IT technologies for use in automated workflows.
- Northbound – Itential exposes network automation functionality for consumption by any type of system or user in their native formats, such as ITSM systems or pipelines.
Zero Touch Everything
Easily kickoff automations within Itential through northbound triggers such as applications, events and alarms, IT Systems, BPMN, or humans needing to make a change.
Flexible Northbound Exposure Model
Expose network automation functionality to every northbound system, pipeline, and end user.
Automation triggers enable teams to define event-driven automations for true closed-loop operations.
CI/CD Pipeline Support
Software developers and pipeline owners can leverage Itential network automation capabilities as part of their CI/CD pipelines. Deliver self-service network capabilities to IT teams.
Integrate a Distributed Source of Truth
Itential integrates with any sources of truth such as IPAM, CMDB, etc. to provide accurate data for network automations to reduce error and optimize efficiency, and can automate changes to the source of truth or the network in order to reconcile conflicts.
Verify & Validate Network Information
Itential integrates with any network mapping or discovery tool, providing advanced validation and verification of network changes, pre- and post-checks for complete assurance in your network change automations.
Incorporate Automation into CI/CD Pipelines
Itential integrates with any pipeline management tool so that you can Incorporate CI/CD practices into your network automation and orchestration initiatives to gain greater velocity and improve delivery.
Maintain an Accurate Real-Time View of all Controllers, Clouds, & Network Systems
Itential’s patented approach to network data federation enables users and applications to implement business logic in one place for all devices, resources, or systems they require, even across distributed network infrastructure.
Transform Data Between Diverse Systems on the Fly
The Itential Automation Platform leverages a patented method for data modeling and translation designed to unify connection between networks and systems that utilize different data models. Itential translates specific data models into a common JSON format, which is both human-readable and easily manipulated for further data transformation.

Frequently Asked Questions
What IT systems and tools does Itential integrate with?
The Itential Automation Platform is built to integrate easily integrate with any IT System, tools, controllers, orchestrators, or services through APIs. Most modern systems have published API specifications that, in many cases, can be directly imported and used in the platform without requiring a restart of any process.
How does Itential integrate with other tools and systems?
The Itential Automation Platform is built to easily integrate with any IT System, tool, controller, orchestrator, or service through APIs. Most modern systems have published API specifications that, in many cases, can be directly used to create an integration in the platform.
What Scripts or DevOps/NetOps tools does Itential support?
The Itential Automation platform can integrate with any DevOps or NetOps tool and system using an available API. Automations created within IAP can be published through an API so that they can be integrated into a DevOps/NetOps process.
If there is an integration not listed, can I build my own?
Yes, every organization’s ecosystem of networking and IT systems is unique, and there is tremendous value in allowing our customers to quickly support automation across all of their system. We provide the ability to build integrations with these systems using API specifications that are published by the system vendors. Using well defined specifications like OpenAPI, Swagger, or Postman collections, customers can use IAP to generate integrations within minutes and start building automations with those systems.
