Automation is essential for IT optimization and digital transformation. Infrastructure automation can help your organization streamline IT operations, improve agility, boost productivity, and increase security and availability across on-site, hybrid, and cloud environments. In fact, 80% of surveyed business executives say adopting IT automation is “extremely important” or “very important” to the future success of their organization.
Most organizations that have started to automate their infrastructure are doing so by domain. Each team uses their preferred automation tools and processes, prompting higher costs, lower efficiency, and limited collaboration across teams. Additionally, many automation tools do not integrate with each other and different teams often take dissimilar approaches to infrastructure automation. This results in time-consuming manual handoffs between teams that can significantly delay projects and resource delivery, even though automation is applied to some tasks within the process.
