What is IT process automation?

IT process automation software allows IT professionals to develop, manage and monitor automated processes from a single dashboard. Typically these are repetitive, time-consuming manual tasks, like server provisioning and configuration, patch management, user provisioning and access management.

The benefits are reduced human error, optimized scalability and cost savings.

But with the evolution of IT, distributed IT environments with multiple vendors, diverse applications, expansive business operations and numerous processes have led IT teams to seek more than a simple automation solution for manual tasks. 

They want end-to-end workflow automation across the entire enterprise with intelligent process automation and seamless adoption into DevOps processes while also bringing innovation to the customer experience. To ensure initiatives and project management don’t stall due to IT processes, IT teams want a user interface with role-based permissions, allowing for controlled levels of self-service and on-demand data access for business users. Self-service portals can automate common IT requests, report issues or access resources, freeing up IT resources.
