NCM 

  • User Interface Upgrades - In coordination with the Orion Platform Team, we're finally addressing our largest complaint in the last 10 years: The User Interface!  We are diligently working with customers of all sizes and locations on what NCM summary and management means to the end-user.  What information is most valid and useful for you, the user, every day.  
  • Python Automation Integration - We've been working with users on what abilities they would like to have with a possible Python experience within NCM.  How does this help users once released and where can it go in the future.  

GIVE US FEEDBACK 

You ask, we listen. Many of the top features developed for NCM are generated through your participation in user sessions and your votes in the  Feature Requests forum.

  • Thanks for that ...I  hope to see something from NCM ..

  • From past discussions with the NCM PM's advanced NCM scripters usually complain about the limitations of the proprietary NCM language, such as not being able to apply a command parse the returned data to make logic decisions.  Due to the success of projects like Nornir and Netmiko there is an existing community of NetEng focused tools and libraries for Python so it seems like the most direct plan to allow full script capabilities in NCM rather than trying to rebuild the proprietary thing into a yet another language for people to learn to use. 

  • it sounds interesting Python integration. i would like more information about that...
