Why You Should Automate Your Infrastructure Today

Infrastructure automation has the potential to streamline your company, whether you have twenty terminals at your disposal or two thousand.  You may be familiar with infrastructure automation through one of its many synonyms: IT management, system configuration management, and others. Whether you know it as infrastructure automation or by one of these other terms, the principles at play are identical.  You’re scripting a digital environment (servers, software, the interaction between them, and more) that can then be scaled to as many individual system nodes as needed.  Infrastructure automation allows you (and any developers authorized by you) to rewrite your scripted environments with ease, saving hundreds of hours of collective work, and avoiding countless errors.
