On Friday, June 30th, 2023 I’ll be giving a talk at NetDevOps Days London.
Explaining the business value of network automation - Or why I succeeded the second time around.
At a previous $dayjob I was brought on board a network engineering team to bring in some expertise in network automation. Along the way, I built a greenfield DC in the UK fully automated, just to watch manual config changes happen on day 2, and the code abandoned. I’ll discuss what I learned about making sure leaders are aligned on the business value of automation, and how I succeeded at the next major project, including why we chose Ansible and netbox as the core of the solution.
