The automation and orchestration of your IT infrastructure and/or services should move you away from traditional manual and error-prone configuration management. The promise is that your IT will be more agile, faster, and flexible, and all that will be achieved at lower operational costs.
These are all valid promises and realistic benefits. However, you should also consider that, in order to achieve them, there is more to do than just automate IT processes. The automation and orchestration of your IT require new skills from your teams. They need to get familiar with the new technologies and components, there are additional development/testing/staging requirements and, most importantly, the key is to move forward from established management practices.
