Itential Automation Platform and NSO Workshop

8 hours
Itential Automation Platform (IAP) is an operations toolset and workflow engine from Itential. The world’s largest service providers and IT organizations use IAP to:

  • Provide an operations “dashboard” GUI for consolidating key ops functions 
  • Create and manage complex operations-facing workflows integrated with device control, AAA, databases and other key applications like ServiceNow
  • Automate large-scale IT actions and services through associated device adapters (NSO or Ansible, etc.), providing the workflow and GUI on top of the device adapter

What to Expect

This session is intended to get you familiar with Itential’s IAP Product and its use with NSO. After completing this session, you will receive: 
  • NSO fundamentals and how they apply to IAP
  • An understanding of the skillset needed to work with IAP
  • Experience working with the IAP operations GUI
  • Experience working with key dashboard tools like MOP and Golden Config
  • Experience working with and creating IAP workflows
  • An understanding of how IAP works with and leverages NSO

Goals & Objectives

  • Refresh on basic NSO administration, GUI and CLI skills 
  • A clear understanding of IAP use features and needed skillset 
  • A view into building and using IAP workflow 
  • A clear understanding of how IAP leverages NSO 
  • A clear understanding of how IAP can be used in your organization and use cases 

Note: As stated, IAP relies on a device adapter. NSO is one of the primary device adapters, so a network operator will need knowledge of both to use the tool. This session is primarily focused on IAP and building workflows on top of NSO. Customers may have had previous NSO training (or taken our NSO workshops). However, it's not necessary that you have previous NSO experience.  

This workshop is hands-on and lab intensive. You will have access to your own IAP and NSO instances and a desktop environment with all the tools needed to build service models.
