What Is A Network Automation Tool?
When IT gets notified of a problem, you need to find and fix the issue immediately. Cut your remediation time from hours to minutes with a network automation tool.
Combine alerts from Intermapper network monitoring software with the power of automation scripts from Automate to reduce manual network activities. Network automation helps you assure a rapid response to network alerts and frees you from making the fix yourself.
How Does Our Network Automation Tool Work?
Once you’ve installed Intermapper and Automate on the same Windows platform, you'll need to enable the integration. Then it's easy to set up the desired action in Automate, attach it to the correct device, and set Intermapper to trigger the command whenever the alert sounds. Intermapper will receive the alert and execute a call to Automate to complete a pre-defined response.
Once the back-end work is done, the products will alert and act together just as you've instructed them to resolve the network issue.
