Gartner named in the 2021 Gartner Market Guide for Network Automation and Orchestration Tools, the first mobile-based network infrastructure management and automation platform, was named a Representative Vendor in the 2021 Gartner Market Guide for Network Automation and Orchestration Tools1. According to the report, network automation and orchestration tools “allow for drastically increased agility and efficiency while also lowering costs, reducing the impact of human-induced errors, and improving compliance.”

Additionally, Gartner points out that “A growing number of IT operations teams have begun to realize that they must change their current approach. Unless they increase their agility and responsiveness to business expectations, they risk being unable to provide the level of service expected by both end users and C-level management.”

Using Loni’s Zero-Code Automation, engineers can automate as needed to meet business demands without writing a single line of code. Loni provides IT teams with a vendor agnostic platform to automate tasks and orchestrate workflows across the entire network. Loni’s unique mobile interface gives IT organizations the freedom to execute those processes from a smartphone, tablet, smartwatch, or IoT device. Network infrastructure processes, typically completed manually using a desktop, can be automated with an easy-to-use mobile user interface (UI).
Loni’s  Zero-Code Automation tool can help IT organizations overcome the challenges they face. Among the challenges Gartner outlines in the report:

  • “Network teams are challenged to deliver stability, availability and reliability improvements, but also to participate in broader agility-driven initiatives.”
  • “Network teams are making slow progress in automating; they continue to lag behind other domain groups in leveraging automation to improve
    agility and responsiveness to business needs.”
  • In addition, Gartner makes several recommendations to optimize network operations, infrastructure and operations, including:
  • “Enhancing network automation/orchestration initiatives by selecting tools and refreshing infrastructure that expose as much functionality as possible
    via APIs.”
  • “Accelerating automation/orchestration transition by identifying orchestration related culture issues and skills missing from their organization and
    choosing vendors that will help fill those gaps.”

Automation shouldn’t require network engineers to become software developers. IT teams can be deterred from adopting automation because they think they need to stop using
CLI tools they are comfortable with and learn new coding languages.

Loni helps break down that barrier by making automation easy to implement; integrating with your existing infrastructure whether you have newer hardware with APIs or legacy hardware that require CLI scrubbing. By easily automating tasks that are repetitive and subject to human error, network teams can focus on more complex business deliverables and innovation.
