Itential has been a huge asset to our network automation teams. We’d reached a point where we were receiving a lot of benefit from work we’d done with Ansible but, we needed to both expand the team members who could participate in our network automation projects and expand the uses cases toward more orchestration-like activities. Itential’s software took our Ansible deployment to the next level and we’ve really just scratched the surface of what their products can do.

By leveraging the Itential Automation Platform (IAP), teams can see a significant increase in usage and adoption of Ansible automations.
