“I am thrilled to be joining the Itential team and continuing my journey in network automation for the APAC region,” Horder said.
“Itential stands out from the pack as having unwavering commitment to its mission, industry-leading technology, and proven credentials at massive scale for an impressive palette of use cases. I expect our APAC customers and partners will be wowed by the dramatic improvements to cost, velocity, and risk of delivering real network automation outcomes that Itential offers.”
