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. This enables businesses 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.

Enabling New Technologies with Dynamic Automation

In recent years, enterprise businesses have been captivated by artificial intelligence, machine learning, and IoT technologies. Despite this interest, incorporating these solutions into a modern enterprise proves to be difficult. Each of these technologies has a dependency on the rapid movement of data. More specifically, they need to have data in real-time, or in near real-time. Legacy data IT automation, based on batch processing and old job scheduling approaches, are simply not sufficient.

One-third of today’s workloads still run on mainframes, owing to their unfailing reliability. Two-thirds of all IT workloads, however, do have the potential to be made dynamic. In this case, dynamic means that automation can incorporate event-based triggers. By triggering something to happen based on an event, your IT tasks, jobs, and workflows will operate in a more real-time fashion. 

Best-in-class companies will increasingly look to adopt an improved automation strategy that accelerates digital information optimization. In transforming, these companies will thus free themselves of the limitations of static, or batch, IT automation in favor of dynamic, or event-based, 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 automation from end-to-end. By managing automation from end-to-end, companies can simultaneously test, deploy, run, and monitor applications across different platforms. This is especially important in a hybrid IT environment, where on-premises and cloud automation is required to connect the the workloads between disperate systems. 

Better Digital Business 

Sustainable success through digitalization can only be ensured through the constant exchange of insights, best practices, and thought leadership. Regardless of where an enterprise is on it's digital transformation journey, they 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.
