Digital transformation is driving organizations to adopt new and innovative ways to deliver application services faster, while simultaneously reducing complexity and operating costs. Network automation has become essential to efficiently operate modern network infrastructure. Most organizations have started automating simple tasks and have witnessed significant results.

Holistic Approach

However, long term success of network automation requires coordination and governance that can be provided by an advanced automation and orchestration tool. The key to achieving this kind of digital success is a holistic approach to network automation and bring in cross-team collaboration.
