IT automation is catching on as a commonly accepted practice by IT professionals to cut down on repetitive processes performed in both datacenters and cloud deployments.
Through automation, software is used to create instructions and processes that replace or reduce the degree at which humans are involved with managing an IT system.
In theory, just about every IT task can be applied some level of automation, but does not replace the need for humans to manage network infrastructure. Automation just makes managing IT easier.
How can your IT services benefit from an automated approach to IT?
Speed is one of the greatest advantages of IT automation. Modern business demands require IT professionals to respond to a variety of routine and one-time issues quickly and efficiently. Automating monotonous IT processes can allow administrators to spend more time on value-add projects and experimenting with new technologies. Automation helps produce a greater output of work and fewer errors, which in turn, equates to more revenue for your business.
Human error is prone to happen even if a task becomes second-nature over time. Making a mistake in a process takes additional time to troubleshoot and correct. By automating a process and ensuring the sequence is correct just one time, the tried and true process will run accurately time after time.
Improve Governance Consistency
Two different IT administrators may take completely different routes to get to the same destination. Ensuring that processes are ran the same way each time helps ensure regulatory compliance and consistency across your department.
Automating IT tasks allows your organization to maximize performance without having to hire additional bodies to account for it.
