September 15: Where’s the Automation “Promised Land”?

Networks are getting bigger and more complex every day. So why are 95% of network changes still performed manually?

Way too many network managers have their hands on keyboards, performing repetitive, error-prone network configuration and provisioning tasks.

That’s why we decided to go all in on network automation, empowering your IT and end users while reducing systemic risk.

Our Adaptive Plug-Ins help you get the most out of your existing infrastructure investments, integrating critical DDI services with applications you use every day.

Automation & Orchestration

By automating everyday network tasks and functions, you’ll dramatically improve network availability and application performance.

And by transforming your mission-critical requirements into customized DDI workflows, plugins, and apps, you’ll take repetitive, time-consuming work off your IT team’s hands — so they can concentrate on the strategic (and profitable) stuff.

Accelerate IP address provisioning

Build, verify, and validate modules in a test environment, then easily promote them to a production environment to deploy applications and services at the speed of business.

Empower IT and end users

Enable your IT team to instantly meet unique end-user requirements with automated IP address provisioning, giving users easlily accessible self-service capabilities.

Reduce systemic risk

As well as eliminating the human errors that come with manual network changes, our automation platform also minimizes cloud-service delivery bottlenecks, so you can boost productivity even faster.

BlueCat Labs

Our official GitHub community is where you’ll find our repository of certified automation workflows, community-built code, and out-the-box Adaptive Plug-Ins.

You’ll also discover a vibrant community of developers creating innovative approaches to automate and integrate DDI infrastructure.
