Freeing your business from repetitive, predictable tasks.
The objective of automation is to make your operational life more simple and more efficient. So, why is it doing the exact opposite for your enterprise?
As a generalisation, manual tasks in any form are comparatively slower, more costly and prone to human error making the case for automation a fairly logical one. The future of enterprise technology is most certainly an automated one. However it is the past that is causing organisations operational headaches as CIO’s are tasked with addressing the performance issues of their existing automation solutions and making their environments more streamlined. While automation technologies have advanced considerably in recent years to include greater functionality and better integration with a wider range of technologies, companies still persist with antiquated solutions because often it is better the devil you know.
Years of divided evolution in the automation space has resulted in a patchwork of different schedulers constituting the typical automation infrastructure for enterprises. Multiple different automation vendors and bespoke solutions based on manual in-house scripts are both quite typical occurrences for companies to contend with. All this makes a platform which is designed to be simple, quite complex. Integration and cohesion are significant issues as when a problem occurs the complex mix of different automation solutions makes fault diagnosis and rectification considerably more difficult. Different automation solutions also require different skill sets and a wider array of support resources increasing operational costs. Rather than embrace change, companies prefer to continue with archaic practices like maintaining job starts manually waiting for one to finish before the other begins. However the longer an automation solution stagnates architecturally the harder it becomes to evolve the technology in your data centres.
An effective automation solution should benefit an enterprise by increasing productivity, lowering costs and raising the overall quality of service. For automation to work well across the breadth and depth of an enterprises technology operations it must also act in a unified and cohesive manner.
