And since the network operations function must directly support an organization’s ITSM/ITOM strategy, so does the NetBrain PDAS. PDAS raises the bar on network automation by tightly connecting to the ITSM/ITOM system already in place.  Once connected, up to 95% of all network service tickets can be addressed through automation, reducing the during of ticket handling by 50% or more, and when used in a preventive fashion, eliminating up to half of all problems from impacting production in the first place.
