Low-Code Automation with Anuta ATOM

Get ready for the new paradigm of network automation

What is Low-Code Automation?

Simply put, Low-Code Automation is a visual development of automation use-cases. Traditional methods of designing automation use-cases involve heavy scripting. Low code automation simplifies the entire process by providing an easy and intuitive drag-and-drop interface.

Programmable networks are essential for a comprehensive automation platform. They bring in much needed agility and flexibility in the automation framework to cater to use-cases specific to the business.

It makes it very easy for non-technical operators to design and develop complex workflows by abstracting complicated and tedious application and infrastructure programming. Low-code automation helps administrators create new use-cases and modify existing use-cases in a fraction of time that it otherwise takes with traditional programming methods.

Low-Code Automation with ATOM platform

While Low-code automation can be done through other avenues, it is important to note that the true advantages and edge of this automation can be leveraged only when it is wielded on a platform that is new-age, enterprise-friendly and cut out for today’s complex IT environments.

Low-code Workflow automation on the Anuta Networks ATOM platform provides administrators with an intuitive graphical user interface to drag, drop and deploy their innovative solutions. By automating cumbersome manual tasks, this next-generation automation framework helps organizations embrace new technologies rapidly and enable a distinct competitive advantage. ATOM workflow provides a rich API and multi-vendor support to integrate with various network entities across geographies easily. It supports an unrivaled 1M+ devices across 45+ vendors.

To add to that, ATOM is augmented with closed-loop automation capabilities. That is why it swiftly responds to network anomalies automatically ensuring high availability of applications and improving business resiliency. By automating repetitive, dull and tedious tasks, ATOM workflow not only reduces the operating expenditures but also empowers network administrators to work on more exciting tasks leading to a happy and motivated workplace.

4 Benefits of low code automation platform

1. Improve Productivity

Productivity levels of network engineers hinge heavily on the speed and efficiency with which they can respond to dynamic network conditions. The drag-and-drop functionality of low-code automation framework enables administrators to rapidly create and modify use-cases and respond to changing environments without any latency or process-halts. Low-code automation optimizes automation efficiency by integrating with third-party network elements easily using open APIs.

2. Enhance Security and Compliance

Managing security effectively is critical for any organisation. The ever-changing landscape of government and organisational regulations also require enterprises to stay on their toes with frequent modifications and enhancements to security policies. Low-code automation provides an easy and intuitive interface to define and update security and compliance policies such as HIPAA, SOX, PCI and other apt organisational policies. It allows administrators to implement changes quickly to be well prepared to address any threats. It makes compliance less of a to-do list and more of a simultaneous outcome that runs parallel to other network goals.

3. Elevate Customer Experience

That’s the point of every IT and business investment, after all, right? Yes, Low-code automation frameworks help in monitoring and enforcing baseline network behaviour and SLA requirements. By abstracting the underlying complexity, this automation enables administrators to adapt to a lot of dynamic network needs. This unprecedented flexibility and agility of low-code automation framework helps to reduce network errors and MTTR considerably. It all comes together eventually in the form of a truly-enhanced and extraordinary customer experience

4. Chop operating costs

Costs lurk in places that are hard to spot and imagine. But smart automation shines a torch on all possible areas of unnecessary flab. Low-code automation enables network architects and operators to create and deploy new use-cases easily. Low-code framework reduces time to configure and accelerates application deployment. Administrators can quickly modify compliance policies and harden security rapidly. As you apply low-code automation, you also start eliminating tedious manual tasks and you begin motivating administrators to work on higher-level strategic tasks. All of these factors, in turn, help in reducing operating costs – and very significantly.
