Blog Post Dynamic Automation: Free Up Your Workforce

Explore how Dynamic Workload Automation uses a combination of distributed and cloud technology to realize real-time, event-driven IT automation.

Dynamic automation uses a combination of distributed and cloud technology to realize real-time, event-driven automation with hour-long cycle times, as opposed to weeks. This enables small and agile teams to work more proactively and at a faster pace. The purpose of dynamic automation is the holistic planning, realization, control and continuous improvement of all essential processes and resources in connection with IT services.

Digital Transformation Through Dynamic IT Automation

Global business in recent years has been captivated by artificial intelligence, machine learning and automation. Despite this widespread exploration, however, the complexities of practically incorporating dynamic automation into businesses with existing and often long-standing processes result in a much more cautious execution pattern. Countless companies have some form of automation on their digital roadmap, but initiating attempts to bring those plans to fruition often results in insecurity, raising concerns about slowed output or disrupted processes.

One third of today’s workloads still run on mainframes, owing to their unfailing reliability. Two thirds of IT workloads, however, do have the potential to be made dynamic. As regulations continue to tighten and complex interdependent business processes become the norm, astute and enterprising companies will increasingly look to adopt an automation strategy that will rapidly accelerate digital information optimization. In transforming, these companies will thus free themselves of the limitations of static IT automation in favor of flexible, intelligent and orchestrated dynamic IT automation with real-time data orchestration.

One Automation Platform for All

Companies that want to stay several steps ahead of the competition should strive for an “IT automation cockpit"--a central automation command station that enables the orchestration of different types of automation from end-to-end. By automating end-to-end, companies can simultaneously test, deploy, run and monitor applications on and across different run-time environments, both in the cloud and on-premises, including legacy platforms. 

Better Digital Business 

Sustainable success through digitalization can only be ensured through the constant exchange of insights, best practices, and thought leadership. Therefore, the Digital Transformation can never be fully realized without continuous collaboration. Tracking the cost and benefit of implementation plays an equally key role in selecting the optimal digital tools. The return on automation (RoA) is thus an essential KPI for decision-makers in monitoring effective Digital Transformation.

Regardless of where they are on their Digital Transformation journey, companies need an enterprise-wide automation strategy that clearly defines what areas can (and should) be automated. Automation ultimately helps enterprises, regardless of their sector, increase their availability, consistency, and security, among other benefits. Automation should, thus, be an essential factor behind every Digital Transformation initiative.
