Atlanta, 20 Oct, 2021 – Itential, the provider of network and cloud automation software, announced at ONUG Fall 2021 the latest release to its cloud-native network automation platform. The Itential Automation Platform is a low-code solution that seamlessly connects IT systems with network technologies for end-to-end network configuration, compliance, and automation.

With its latest release, network teams can now try the cloud platform and start automating tasks in a matter of minutes with sample network devices or connect to their own network, with no setup or complex installation. Additional enhancements include the ability to invite colleagues to collaborate on automation within the Itential Automation Platform, facilitating participation across both network and cloud engineering teams.

Recent research conducted by EMA Research reveals that the most common challenges organisations face when trying to evaluate and implement network automation are the skills gaps among network and cloud teams and the difficulties associated with evaluating and implementing solutions. Itential’s latest release of its SaaS platform allows organisations to evaluate the product in a full feature-rich cloud environment and provides training courses designed to ensure network teams can quickly learn and realise value from Itential.

“The challenges network engineers are currently facing are not new,” says, Peter Sprygada, vice president of product management at Itential. “What is new are the resources now available to help address these challenges. Collaboration, tooling, and platform coordination is essential to succeed in today’s dispersed work environment where the network has been ignored for years. Utilising the new Itential Automation Platform, network engineers can now proactively and quickly tackle these challenges head on and immediately gain the benefit of automating their infrastructure without being required to learn software development practices.”

Itential is the only automation platform built to support both network and cloud infrastructure, making it easy for enterprise organisations to maintain network compliance, reduce manual operations, and simplify network management. Network teams can now access the full cloud-native platform and get started with network automation, utilising Itential to do the following:

“To remain competitive in remote and hybrid workforce, network automation will remain a crucial differentiator,” says, Enterprise Management associates vice president of research Shamus McGillicuddy. “Our research found that IT organisations find proofs of concept deployments and vendor-hosted labs and sandboxes as very helpful when evaluating a network automation solution. Itential’s decision to make its SaaS solution easy to try before they buy will be most welcome.”

Currently exhibiting at ONUG October 20-21, Itential is addressing how enterprises can simplify automation initiatives across hybrid-infrastructure, emphasising the transformation of digital enterprises while focusing on the acceleration of cloud adoption and ensuring compliance. Prior to this event, Itential also announced the successful completion of its System and Organisation Controls (SOC) 2 Type 2 audit for its cloud native Itential Automation Platform. This audit attestation validates that Itential maintains effective controls over security, confidentiality, availability, and processing integrity.
