The persistent IT Skills Gap has teams searching for better ways to manage their surging workloads, to work around staffing shortages, and to get ahead of the shifting needs of business.
The goal is that by leveraging automation tools, IT pros will be able to spend more time on larger projects that better serve the organization.
According to research recently conducted by Enterprise Management Associates (EMA), 75% of enterprises licensed new Workload Automation products in the last 4 years.
IT teams commonly employ several types of automation, including: built-in (native) schedulers, home-grown applications, workload automation, and custom, standalone scripts. Automation sprawl results from this Elemental Approach to IT Automation.
56% of respondents reported having “too many scheduling and automation tools in place.”
Silos of automation make it difficult to share information and manage dependencies across the organization. IT environments clogged by automation sprawl do not enable agility and quick response times.
Implementing a Low Code WLA solution that supports the goals of the Architectural Approach to IT Automation allows IT to automate, integrate, and coordinate technologies across the organization, regardless of infrastructure. This allows teams to be more responsive to business requirements such as scalability, compliance, and agility.
