NSO Developer Days US 2019: Network Automation Delivery Model


Fredrik Swahn, Product Marketing Manager
Network automation is high on the agenda, but remains a daunting challenge, with results often failing to live up to expectations. Many are struggling with both the technical and organizational changes it requires. With years of experience of implementing network automation using the Cisco Network Services Orchestrator (NSO), we have developed a Network Automation Delivery Model (NADM) that aims to guide customers in their journey towards a fully automated network. A powerful, standardized, model that covers the essential parts of a network automation transformation will be presented and discussed. The model covers all four perspectives of People, Process, Technology, and Organization and therefore targets all the stakeholders from C-level decision makers to the network engineers that execute the operations of the network as of today. During the session, both challenges and success factors for implementing network automation will be presented and put into context.
