Today’s hyper-competitive world requires IT Operations to create differentiation for their company in the market – but existing Ops tools can be a barrier to that desired change. Intelligent automation is the answer to overcoming these hurdles.
Existing Ops solutions typically result in a set of ‘islands of automation’ that allow separate technologies or applications to be controlled individually. Modern business processing spans applications and technologies, both in-house and in the cloud, but these silos enforce the execution of tasks to be managed separately.
Essential interconnections are bridged between these applications – through data loads, file drops and time-fence schedules – but they are fragile. When everything works as expected, the result is OK – but far too often the bridges break and firefighting comes to the fore.
Many of the issues we find ourselves faced with today are caused by these silos of automation:
Introducing intelligent automation to your workloads is a key step in facilitating the fully-automated enterprise. It allows IT Ops to control everything in their estate, from one place. By creating reliable connections, Ops support our business processing and deliver superior results at a fraction of the cost. The CA Automic Workload Automation solution offers out-of-the-box compatibility with all major tools, platforms and languages. By introducing true agility to your workload schedulers, you can become proactive rather than reactive, resolving issues before they impact upon the business.
