:) bye for now :) 

Steel

Thank you for the insightful presentation!  Learned a lot of new things!

Steel

Great questions everyone. Thank you all for your time. 

Steel

very good session, great to be able hear Jason's thoughts, gives clarity among all the ongoing buzz about DevOps. especially his suggestions on implementation strategy - think or plan big but start small was a clear direction 

Steel

thank you, good day to all until next time :) - thanks

Steel

For howarddy3: Yes. Absolutely. In fact, Splunk is one of the nearly 2000 points of integration that are included with BWC as part of the StackStorm open source project. 

Steel

Yes. In general. But data is only one part of it. If you take applications and compute. The ability to provision those technologies quickly and repeatedly is a proven use case for automation. Network engineers typically use scripts with CLI commands to provision services quickly. But these approaches for networks are unable to take into account the need for logic and event-driven. That's where Workflow Composer can help. Logic can be built into workflows such that it can respond to events, verify configs and act accordingly. When done, the cross-domain integration can then tell other IT functions to take action, etc. 

Steel

Well, I'd like to thank Jason (aka @piaporte1) for a terrific radio show and post-show chat. Really appreciate all the great info on network automation, Workflow Composer and the other topics we discussed. And thanks to the audience who tuned in today and those who participated in the online chat, too.

Author

yes, great show and great answers @Jason thanks all! Have a great day everyone!

Platinum

I'm ok now.   

 

Wonder if some similar Alert/Report service can be cobble together with Splunk feeding into a bot on Slack with a NOC channel??

 

Steel

Thanks @jamesryan. Glad it was helpful. 

Steel

Thanks, Jason. Is that, in part, because so many orgs have tackled/are tackling silos for data -- and the approach makes sense for networks too?

Author

Excellent presentation!  Great information and idea's.  Thank you

Steel

PS Alison. The issue around silos is changing fast. More and more organizations are coming to this realization so change is happening fast. 

Steel

Alison. Historically, and in many cases even today, organizations automate in silos. Reason is that its easier because there's less to take into consideration. But we've found that automation in silos won't enable an organization to achieve desired agility goals. And this is an area few consider. But once considered and work to address, tremendous improvements in agility are achieved. 

Steel

@howardy3 and @batye: The audio replay should be available very soon if it's not yet available. We keep radio show archives up for a long, long time. :)

Author

@howarddy3 lmk if it works out and you hear the audio

 

 

Steel

You're posting undercover, Jason!

Author

I guess, from the start small, it can be either - re: the question I just posted.

Author

Clarification for those on chat board. This is Jason using plaporte1's session. Apologies if confusing. 

Steel

Do organizations typically look at network automation as a solo project or is it usually part of a multi-part implementation?

Author

Regarding how to start an automation strategy, a couple suggestions:

- Think big, start small. There's lots of industry information on this from analysts and vendors. 

- Look for easy wins. Mostly likely, compute and applications are farther along with automation. Learn from them and apply to networking. 

- Keep the big picture in mind. Have a strategy and be able to point to it when conflicts and decisions need to be made. 

Steel

@howarddy3 refresh webpage and click play - sometimes it works out and you could listen what been recorded :) - hope it works out for you and you could listen in 

 

Steel

Great question. There are a number of ways we can think of: 

1. ChatOps: I mentioned this earlier. The ability for all NOC engineers to see in real-time what's happening, alerts that come in, actions taken by engineers and so on. Workflow Composer enables viewing of alerts but also action to be taken. 

2. Issue event detection and auto-remediation. Workflow Composer can detect an event, attempt to take action and all along the way, post messages to ChatOps. 

Net result is a more efficient and responsive NOC

 

Steel

There was a lot of discussion about need for strategies and breaking down silos...can you tell us more about maybe the top two things organizations should start with when developing an automation strategy?

The live show ended @Howard but now we are doing a post show web chat with @Jason

Platinum

No, @howarddy3, Jason will be joining us on this message board soon. The radio portion is over.

Author

Here's a great one from @Riza below: Can you elaborate on how DevOps would transform the current NOC (typical SOPs, some automated some manual) processes?

Platinum

Folks... I have silence... is the program still on?  

Steel

Thanks, @Liz. Please, everyone, don't hesitate to ask your questions. 

Author

Great interview @Alison and @Jason. Looking forward to the post-show chat! 

Platinum

It's exciting to hear about DevOps and automation in networking; it's such a great asset in other areas of tech.

Author

@arnab; in a devops meeetup, there were people from banking industry who are well into devops

Steel

Thank you, everyone. Jason should be with us shortly.

 

Author

thank you, good points and ideas :)

Steel

Excellent show, thanks! Looking forward to the chat in just a few...

Thank you! Very good!!

Steel

another good one @Riza! looks like the chat board is waking up!

Platinum

Can you elaborate on how DevOps would transform the current NOC (typical SOPs, some automated some manual) processes?

Steel

following up on the culture, are there any other industries which has adopted these end to end automation before and can become a model for networking world

Steel

Appreciate the examples, thanks!

Q for Jason: You mentioned there are so few automation teams at your customers. What do you suggest for those looking to beat the skill set challenge in automation? Are there courses folks shoudl take to aquire new skills? Or training their employees shoudl take?

Platinum

@Alison thanks for asking my question!

@Liz - thanks :) 

Steel

Great question @Batye and @Kelsey. Everyone it's almost time for  questions so don't be shy. We leave our judgement at the door when it comes to questions 

Platinum

I am attending meetings of an Agile Coaching Circle to collect and develop ideas for DevOps projects and company transformations.  I am an advocate of this approach.

 

 

Steel

How do you predict automation will improve security measures? 

Not yet but DevOps will be an integral part of our NFV strategy.

 

Steel

Not yet but under discussion.

Steel

my question to Jason: some technology is proprietary and only available from one vendor or two vendor's and it locking you in... what is the best solution it this case??? ps: Jason - thank you for your time - very interesting to learn from your ideas :) 

Steel

@LizCoyne -good point :) time to think about questions .

Steel

Jason is going to be taking questions live on the air, folks. Start thinking about things you'd like to ask him and post your questions in the chat. We'll be passing them to him.

Platinum

Agile is such a different approach...agile coaching is key, I'd say.

Platinum

Netwk Automation and DevOps are Agile processes, needing org change and culterual shifts.  You need Agile coaching...

Steel

@Kelsey yes and no as baby boomers leaving workforce... and new breed of agile and flexible breed have better adaptability in they blood :) 

Steel

sounds like automation is a skills gap that needs to be filled, big time

Platinum

@batye skill sets pose a problem, too

transformation is not an easy process as people tend to resist change...

Steel

@howard I'm jealous, always 60s in the bay area

+ 1 on easy integration with existing tools and suites.

 

Steel

Q for Jason: how does culture play into the New IP transformation. Culture eats strategy for breakfast, right? How does Brocade address the cultural challenge when it comes to working with their customers?

Platinum

Well, its cool and crisp in the SF Bay Area, California, but will be hot next week.

 

Steel

Agreed on a need for a comprehensive strategy
