Layers of Automation

Enterprise IT Automation that takes a layered, architectural approach to automation enables IT to increase efficiency and drive business value

The Problem: An Elemental Approach

IT has more to manage than ever before. As a result, IT teams are striving to streamline their processes and increase efficiencies with automation. Often, automation takes the form of custom scripts or built-in scheduling components—IT finds a problem, IT solves that problem.

This is an elemental approach to automation.

While an elemental type of approach may prove effective in the short term because it solves immediate problem areas, over time it becomes increasingly complex, expensive, and difficult to manage. Disparate applications, technologies, and platforms that were not designed to easily communicate with one another makes the building of end-to-end workflows, the passing of data, and the management of dependencies difficult, often requiring extensive coding.

Additionally, each tool may come with its own licensing and support costs, and each tool may require time-consuming, costly training. IT amasses collections of complex scripts and multiple scheduling and automation tools, and the automation environment becomes siloed. These siloes increase complexity and costs, consequently slowing IT down with reduced efficiency.

The Solution: A Layered, Architectural Approach

To reduce complexity, organizations need to take an architectural, layered approach to automation. This approach coordinates and consolidates silos of automation, providing a single point of control. To adopt a layered, architectural approach to automation, IT teams need a solution that is designed for handling a multitude of automation areas and designed for changing business and IT requirements.
