Carma pioneered the concept of Foundational Network Inventory, which means the ability to know the geospatial data of the network, how equipment is powered, and how it is interconnected in order to provide a functional service. The same concept applies to fiber distances spanning miles, or electrical circuits traversing feet across a data hall.
This data is also the input to every Orchestration and Automation platform hoping to accelerate service delivery. Unfortunately, automation can also rapidly expel anarchy when fed bad information.
Carma uses multiple data points and relationships to automatically highlight data integrity issues so that subsequent automation initiatives can function as intended, instead of dying on the heap of aspirational press releases.
