As organizations’ automation needs increase, workloads also become more complex. The interdependencies between those workloads and the applications they interact with are also becoming greater. That’s where technology such as Automic Automation Intelligence can assist by providing monitoring, data visualization and predictive analytics as well as simulation capabilities for optimizing workload automation (WLA).
Automic Automation Intelligence is part of the Automic Automation product suite. It provides companies with a predictive analytics workload platform so they can obtain the visualization, adaptability and intelligence required to manage complex or very large workloads. A single pane of glass solution that works across multiple vendors and applications, makes the tool efficient and easy to use. Using Automic Automation Intelligence with Automic Automation integrates the runtime information of executions from different clients in a single interface, no switching from one Automic Web Interface to another is needed.
The Automic Automation suite is designed for a wide array of jobs that, if performed manually, are unwieldy and time consuming. Running batch files on hundreds of machines — or very involved jobs on a few machines — are good candidates, in addition to jobs spread over a large group of machines that must be checked weekly. For example, many organizations employ weekly agent checks, running jobs on thousands of machines during a specific time. Previously, any machines that failed the check would require manual intervention. An automated solution identifies the issue and can run an automated process written to address the agents that are outside the acceptable parameters. Another example for Automation Intelligence would be anytime a person would normally have to create a batch file or Powershell script. These are only a couple of examples where this tool can be used to reduce manual workload and automate repetitive tasks that must be carried out regularly.
Automic Automation Intelligence allows teams to predict issues that could adversely affect business, so they can be resolved before impact. That saves time and money and allows employees to focus on jobs that are of core importance to the business.
Being hardware agnostic, Automic Automation can save time and money for virtually any organization with jobs that are mundane and time consuming but need to be performed accurately and efficiently. Multiple departments can work off one automation server, creating a multilevel strategy.
A Good Fit for Changing Workplace Environments
Remote work has become a new normal for companies, and with that shift they are more frequently being asked to provide evidence of licensing compliance. Automic Automation can help with software edits to track and report software use, including frequency of use and who is using the software, verifying licensing compliance, and confirming compliance with industry standards as well as with legal requirements.
Workloads in Production
Active monitoring and management are essential for workloads in production. With a quality workload automation tool such as Automic Automation, production support staff can accurately oversee the quality and timeliness of WLA execution and monitor alerts in addition to SLA adherence and reporting, and more. In addition, they can significantly reduce the time and effort involved in actively monitoring and managing their workloads.
