Network Automation Workflow

Network Automation Workflow breaks down a higher-level activity into subtasks and ties them together with network events, provisioning actions, show-commands, pre-checks, post-checks, user forms and approvals, timed background tasks, inventory checks, etc. The Workflow Automation software offers an intuitive graphical designer to automate network provisioning and maintenance activities.

True closed-loop network automation requires a comprehensive workflow utility that can integrate with diverse devices in the complex multi-vendor, multi-domain network. Network automation workflow monitors and troubleshoots the entire network through a single pane of glass. It stitches together various heterogeneous activities and provides a reusable and executable playbook. It not only eliminates human errors but also makes it easy to locate the network error. Workflow Automation empowers network administrators to focus on strategic business activities rather than worry about the day to day operations.

A network outage lasting only a single hour can cost a business more than $300,000

How does Low-Code Automation work?

Benefits of ATOM Network Automation Workflow

ATOM leverages BPMN 2.0 for low code automation and simplifies the design of self-service workflows with a GUI. Creating a workflow is as easy as drawing a Network Diagram in Visio by defining new tasks or picking from a library of available tasks.

Document, Standardize & Automate known method-of-procedures

Tired of maintaining multiple Method-of-Procedures (MOPs) for provisioning, troubleshooting and upgrading the network? Standardize & Automate your MOPs using ATOM’s Network Automation Workflow

Integrate home-grown scripts & Ansible playbooks

Don’t throw away any efforts you have made to automate your network. ATOM offers integration of home-grown scripts and triggers Ansible playbooks that you have been using in your networks

Create reusable workflow libraries

Create workflows once, and use it multiple times. Call them as sub-routines into your regular workflows. ATOM offers tight integration of workflows including error handling between workflows.

Design end-user forms, manipulate workflows & schedule them

Trigger your workflows with enough information by creating end-user forms, handle complex use cases by manipulating each task in the workflow, compare the pre & post-checks, and draw inferences to execute the MOPs successfully.

What’s unique to ATOM Network Automation Workflow

Low-code graphical workflow designer

ATOM offers a Visio like BPMN2.0 based graphical user interface that allows drag and drop of tasks to create simple and complex workflows. Build end-user forms, create user and system tasks, call inline scripts, incorporate existing scripts, and much more.

Trigger workflows using network monitoring thresholds

Kick start a remediation or ticketing workflow when a KPI threshold gets breached. ATOM network workflow automation is tightly coupled with its alerting and network monitoring engine to trigger closed-loop automation.

Integration with Service Orchestration

Integrate pre & post-validations to service orchestration, compare them all in a single workflow to ensure successful service provisioning and availability. In the event of unsuccessful post-checks, trigger notifications to northbound portals.

Handle rollback & error scenarios

In case of an issue during workflow execution, ATOM handles error scenarios and take actions such as notifying the team or perform a rollback to revert back to the last known state.

Integration to Northbound portals

Trigger your workflows from northbound portals such as ServiceNow and get notified in the event of a failure. ATOM sends all relevant payload information for network teams to understand the issue and take necessary actions.
