Intent Based Networking (IBN)

Intent Based Networking

The world of automation is changing rapidly. We’ve quickly moved from a point where IT automation would be a benefit to automation being a baseline requirement. What we automate, how we do it, and how extensively it’s required are all changing.

This rapid change has brought about major advances in the way in which we look at automation. Out of necessity we’re abandoning the old concept of the assembly line, where automation is individual specific tools for very specialized tasks. What’s emerging is a much more fluid and intelligent automation system.

Those systems are known as Intent Based Systems. With intent based systems we’re able to initiate the IT automation process with the business outcome we’re trying to achieve. We describe our requirements for a new application in business logic: compliance, user-experience, etc., and the system translates this into the lower level functions required to push the application out through automation.

Intent systems are driving networks, data centers, and complete hybrid, or multi-cloud architectures. The end result is faster deployment married to tighter security and a reduction in the risk inherent with any change.
