Gluware is a network automation platform that delivers multivendor automation for brownfield networks.
Gluware customer Merck describes its network automation journey, the problems it was trying to solve, why it selected Gluware, and how it uses Gluware in production today.
Salvatore Rannazzisi, Associate Director at Merck, describes the organization’s need to automate tasks including configuration changes across hundreds of routers, and to support the adoption of Microsoft SaaS applications. He walks through actual use cases including inventorying the network and automating campus switch management.
Sal also candidly discusses the technical and human challenges of bringing automation into a production network, including getting support from business leaders and engineers, and the upfront work required to implement an automation platform.
Packet Pushers co-founder Ethan Banks introduces the session, and Michael Haugh, VP of Product Management at Gluware hosts the conversation.
This video was recorded on May 14, 2019 in New York City as part of Gluware Intent ’19, a live event hosted by the Packet Pushers and sponsored by Gluware.
