Many companies are striving to use automation more strategically across their organizations. Automating IT functions is key to their success. In fact, 451 Research found that 20% of surveyed companies expect their IT processes will be automated in the next year.1 But the heightened focus on automation is more than a trend. As companies strive to deliver such solutions that drive business success, they must also find ways to free up staff to focus on these projects that will be deployed across the hybrid cloud.
Advanced automation helps teams achieve their innovation goals by automating routine and repetitive tasks that interfere with top priorities. For example, there may be a key technology that requires continual management or support. Left to manual methods, this can take time and slow delivery of new applications. Automation frees teams from routine tasks and helps them better manage complexity so they have more time to deliver new applications and capabilities more quickly.
