ONUG IT Service Lifecycle Management Automation Framework (SLMAF) Proof of Concepts:  The following simple use cases are proposed to be presented at this Spring ONUG in May at the first set of PoC based upon the ONUG IT SLMAF.  


1.    Simple addition of a printer to a network

  • End user / Staff member acquires off the shelf printer from retail establishment
  • End user is able to plug printer into the network simply, and provide print services for all staff in the office space
  • Engagement of IT staff should not be necessary
  • This use case is simplistic, but leads to automation of end points (IoT), end user, DC servers and services, Cloud Services

2.    Provisioning of services (2 servers/services)

  • SERVER 1 – Front end (ie. web server)
  • SERVER 2 – Application (ie. oauth 2.x)
  • This use case is simplistic, but leads to automation of services in corporate, DC, cloud and SAAS provisioning

 These simple use cases allow the ONUG Lab to develop several items including 1) interoperability of any vendor added into this lab configuration, 2) hygiene for each use case, to make as much of the lab reusable as possible and 3) standard mechanisms to allow any technology to fit into the lab, meeting with the objective of cooperation.
