On today's Heavy Networking podcast we discuss network compliance. The big idea is to rethink how you do compliance so that the process is automation friendly and accommodates all the network device types you have to manage. We're sponsored by Itential and our guest is Chris Wade, CTO. The post Heavy Networking 591: Want Network Automation? Start With Compliance And Validation (Sponsored) appeared first on Packet Pushers.
