Cloud Automation
New Approaches for Provisioning and Managing
Cloud automation is a broad term that refers to the processes and tools an organization uses to reduce the manual efforts associated with provisioning and managing cloud computing workloads. IT teams can apply cloud automation to private, public and hybrid cloud environments. With cloud automation, an organization eliminates the repetitive and manual processes for workload deployment and management. To achieve cloud automation, an IT team needs to use orchestration and automation tools that run on top of their virtualized environment. Orchestration enables an administrator to codify the various steps and processes involved with workload deployment and management, while automation invokes those steps without human intervention. Learn from other ITMA members how they are taking making an impact with cloud automation.

When implemented properly, cloud automation saves an IT team time and money. It also leads to fewer errors, as organizations can construct more predictable and reliable workflows. This plays directly into better IT and corporate governance.
