Explore patterns and tactics used in automating network management. End-to-end automation may not be an immediate goal for everyone but there are practical solutions to simplify common and error-prone tasks. Additionally, we will dive in to using tools such as Ansible as the glue between other systems creating a single-point to manage data and settings. Basic use of RESTful APIs to connect these different tools reduces redundant data entry, saving time.
