Kentik announced the integration of their two platforms, enabling NetOps teams to build and run automations to act on any event, from security risks to network optimization, and remediate the situation resulting in more accurate, secure, and efficient network infrastructure.

Kentik’s observability platform enables organizations to collect telemetry input from all critical network elements and turn that data into insights and actionable alerts for infrastructure teams. Itential enables infrastructure teams to automate network and security configuration changes across hybrid multi-cloud networks and quickly integrate with IT systems to orchestrate the entire end-to-end change management process. With Kentik’s advanced network observability platform combined with Itential’s network-centric automation and orchestration platform, NetOps teams can enable closed-loop automations in response to intelligently generated network events, ensuring critical infrastructure operates more securely and reliably than ever before.

“Automation and observability have long been independent pillars of network innovation. As infrastructure becomes increasingly distributed, enterprises now require observability data to integrate with and drive their automation efforts, said Chris Wade, CTO of Itential. “Our partnership with Kentik highlights the demand for seamless integration between observability and automation platforms at the API level, empowering NetOps teams to swiftly and confidently address issues faster and with greater confidence through automation.”

The technical alliance between Kentik and Itential brings security, reliability, and agility to networking, making it easier for enterprises to automate and manage complex hybrid multi-cloud networks. By integrating these two platforms together, network teams can build automations that utilize Kentik’s unique observability features, making changes to the network in real time for high priority incidents and notify the appropriate teams of these changes via group messaging and IT change management systems.

“Customers choose Kentik because of two things – first, we offer the most comprehensive and innovative network observability solution in the industry,” said Christoph Pfister, CPO, Kentik. “And second, they want a solution that can be fully and easily integrated with the rest of their operations stack, in order to leverage Kentik’s powerful AI-based insights for automating responses to network incidents. Our vision has always been to link insights to automation, and today we are taking big steps forward by providing an out-of-the-box integration with Itential’s best-in-class automation solution.

“The Network Automation Forum was founded to drive effective and practical network automation adoption, in much the same way that other technology sectors have done successfully,” said Scott Robohn, co-founder and managing director of the Network Automation Forum. “When modern technology vendors like Itential and Kentik combine their efforts by integrating their solutions, they streamline the path and accelerate the adoption of network automation.”
