Today on Packet Pushers, the business of network automation. We’ve talked several times on this show about HOW to automate. Python, Ansible, APIs, and so on.
But what we’ve never talked about before is how a major operational change like network automation can impact your organization.
To discuss this topic is Alejandro Salinas, Senior Manager of Global Network Operations at GroupOn.
We start by exploring the reasons that GroupOn decided to pursue network automation. We also explore how Salinas got buy-in from key stakeholders, including executives and IT teams. We also explore the challenges that come with running a NetOps team, including training, tool maintenance, and employee retention.
