2018 is well underway, and automation is top of mind for business and IT professionals in every industry. In fact, according to the latest Gartner research, IT Infrastructure Automation Tools ranked number one as the top Initiative for Increased Investment in 2018. 71% of I&O leaders surveyed reported that they have plans to increase investment in these tools in the coming year, and Gartner listed the major benefit of these automation tools as reduced costs from standardizing infrastructure, automation workflows, and scripts.

How many hours of the day do you spend coding? Most IT programmers or developers will say that it varies. For someone in this type of role, the days become unpredictable—the amount of time needed to research, write, test, and document new code is difficult to predict. While the writing part isn’t always extremely time consuming, the researching, testing, and documentation phases of coding can extend the lifetime of the task at hand tenfold. It’s no secret that there’s a skills gap facing IT, so when these time-consuming processes occupy limited IT resources, there is no one available to perform the other repetitive, but necessary, IT tasks. What many IT teams are beginning to learn is that an IT Automation solution can eliminate, almost completely, the time-consuming elements that come along with coding.
