Blog Post IT Automation Made Simple

How businesses manage their workloads by automating background processes and combating the complexity of today’s heterogeneous IT environments.


The simple fact is that business today happens a lot faster than human beings can process it. And that is not anything that is going to change. In fact, as cloud computing and digital transformation reach their maturity the speed of business will only grow faster and faster.

What’s a Business to do?

Think of it this way: if a smallish company has ten developers sitting in a room, what is the true value gained by the IT cost? Wouldn’t a company prefer those developers to spend their time adding value to the business? Wouldn’t they prefer their developers to create tools that generate new revenue streams and open up new opportunities?

I think many companies and many developers themselves would agree that what they don’t want to be doing is getting bogged down in managing queues, backlogs, and messy operations. Teams would prefer spending time adding value – not just keeping the lights on.

Meeting the challenge of application development in a digital economy revolves around the ability to manage continuous deployment. Technology today and in the future is about being flexible and reactive to market pressure and agile enough to develop solutions rapidly.

But sadly, more often than not, this is not the way the IT teams work.

IT teams today are overworked and understaffed and as a result they are incredibly inefficient. As business speeds up, they lose ground faster and faster.

So, what can a Business actually do?
