As we have all experienced in recent days, hard times can come unexpectedly and test our ability to innovate in the face of crises. These times leave no one feeling completely secure as we race to protect livelihoods and sustain some sense of normalcy.
Our experience, supported by outside research, has been that organizations that have invested in digital transformation to standardize and automate core business processes are able to maintain greater stability through uncertainty and rapid change.
Automation provides one potential avenue for preparing your organization for the unexpected by augmenting your staff and building a core of collected knowledge. We hope that no organization would need to fully rely on automation options, but even in the best of times, these options will help you improve your business agility. As part of a set of strategic investments, these options can stabilize your business and help you and your staff weather a storm.
Red Hat's Ansible Automation Platform is one of our specialties— it is an open source automation technology that can automate almost anything IT. We often recommend it to our customers, since it can quickly enable you to confidently develop repeatable, scalable, and autonomous operational procedures.
