IT Automation: Support and Improve Business Innovation

White Paper Published By: Cisco

Type:  White Paper
Length:  8 pages

Evolving business strategies help keep businesses competitive, but they require time and involvement from the IT group to be effectively implemented. Without effective IT automation in place, IT personnel lack the time to fully support new strategic business initiatives because they are continually occupied by day-to-day operations and troubleshooting. Available IT staff time is consumed because staff must manually manage and troubleshoot routine data center processes. This forces the IT group into a constant reactive mode.

IT automation solutions from Cisco allow IT to align itself with evolving business needs by meeting business unit service demands efficiently and accurately. Cisco’s data center automation solutions free valuable human and computing resources to fully support the entire business as it evolves.

In addition to addressing changing strategic needs, businesses are always looking for ways to cut costs. Automation has always been at the forefront of this effort. An automated IT group lowers both capital and operational expenses by allowing the IT department to operate more efficiently, accomplishing more with fewer resources.

The purpose of this white paper is to learn:

  • IT process automation supports strategic business initiatives that allow businesses to become more competitive.
  • Efficiencies derived through automation lower both capital expenses and operational expenses.
  • IT automation provides more accurate and timely data to help businesses make better decisions faster.
  • Automation helps IT align with business needs to deliver optimum business value.
