IDC Analyst Connection: Automation Is the Order of the Day
IDC survey data indicates that 45% of IT staff time is taken up by routine operations such as provisioning, configuration, maintenance, monitoring, troubleshooting, and remediation. In contrast, only 21% of IT time is allocated to innovation and new projects. Good news: many of these routine tasks can be automated.
Reasons to use automation to improve administrative efficiencies:
Improves response time, reduces risk, and frees up IT staff
Improves the reliability of operations while ensuring that established policies are followed
