The buzz-phrase is IT Automation, let us tell you more…
Like many things in business, and not just information technology, there are mundane routine tasks to perform. In the IT world, with the latest systems, automating those repetitive jobs saves time, saves money and an automated process with less human intervention is prone to less errors.
Microsoft amongst others have always had utilities for systems administrators to automate tasks to some degree, but now the tools are more sophisticated. You’ll soon hear about self-healing materials (e.g. mobile phones and non-stick frying pans that will cover their own surface scratches), we now have software systems that combined with monitoring utilities and automation features that can make part of your system, believe it or not, self-healing.
Of course, there will always be situations where human hands are required but by automating simple or even complex but repetitive tasks, you can free up your IT resources to spend more time on helping the business move forward.
We can carry out a full audit of your IT processes and can advise on how automation can help you, your IT department, and your Business.
