Improved time to market and quality of service
When done right, automation will deliver business value by allowing you to execute existing processes faster and with fewer errors. You will be able to respond to changing business requirements and deploy new services faster.
More resources for strategic initiatives that provide real business value
Automation can save your IT team a lot of time and resources, so it can focus on the development of new services that add more value to your business.
Better security and compliance
One of the main challenges with IT security policies is that they work well on paper, but struggle with delivering in a production environment. There are several reasons for that – patches are not deployed, ports remains open by mistake, misconfigurations are hard to identify and detect, etc. With automation, these issues are a thing of the past. You still have to design your security well, but the automated processes will make sure policies are actually deployed accurately and consistently, ensuring your data center is secure, robust and compliant with your security strategy.
Mistakes happen, and things sometimes just go wrong. That’s inevitable. Even with automation, you will still have to do some troubleshooting, but when a process is error-free, standardized and automated, it will stay just as you defined it – without typos, unnecessary commands, or unintended changes - even after millions of repetitions.
Lower operational costs
Simple – fewer repetitive tasks, fewer mistakes, less troubleshooting and downtime.
