ATLANTA, Mar. 25, 2019 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Itential®, the leader in intelligent network automation, today announced its recognition for technology innovation and vision as a "451 Firestarter," a prestigious award from leading industry analyst firm 451 Research. The Firestarter awards recognize exceptional innovation and disruption within the IT industry.

Introduced in 2018, and awarded quarterly, the 451 Firestarter program is exclusively analyst-led, and allows the 451 Research team of technology and market experts to highlight organizations they believe are significantly contributing to the overall pace and extent of innovation in the technology market and stand out in terms of technology vision, uniqueness and potential to disrupt or impact a new or existing market.

"Itential's tool-chain automation is one of the few orchestration products that allows network IT and developers to effectively collaborate on network orchestration without having to turn network IT staff into developers, or vice versa," said Mike Fratto, senior analyst at 451 Research. "Innovative approaches and flexible platforms from companies like Itential deserve recognition and a 451 Firestarter award."
