Network automation can save IT tremendous amounts of time by relieving staff of repetitive, formerly-manual tasks.

So how should your IT organization determine which tasks or actions are good candidates for automating, and how does IT implement these projects safely? In this session, a leading expert on network management will share best practices on how to look for automation projects that yield maximum benefit, and how to guard against the kinds of mistakes that can lead to major consequences if the project is not executed correctly.
