According to an IDC report1, “virtually (97%) of organizations see major barriers to their ability to effectively employ automation across their enterprise. Through 2023, many IT automation efforts will be delayed or will fail outright due to underinvestment in creating IT/Sec/DevOps teams with the right tools and skills. The end goal is to deliver consistent, coherent and cooperative automation at scale.”

Red Hat Ansible Automation Platform on Azure helps IT organizations perform these challenging tasks at scale while minimizing user error. The integration with Azure services, including Azure compute, network and storage can further increase the ROI of automation, allowing customers to scale their IT operations.

Red Hat Ansible Automation Platform on Azure enables enterprise IT teams to achieve greater scale, speed and standardization with automation practices for their hybrid cloud. This helps to remove the infrastructure maintenance and operational burden from IT teams, enabling them to focus purely on delivering automation strategies for a more efficient, flexible and scalable business.

The latest version of Ansible Automation Platform added self-contained automation capabilities to deploy at massive scale across hybrid clouds and edge environments, while shifting automation more deeply into the application development lifecycle. Its flexible foundation, tools, services and capabilities offer a whole new level of customization and control that expands the boundaries of what is possible for enterprises.

“We believe that this is the decade of automation. Just like in other domains, from manufacturing to logistics, automation is the one technology that enables the operational scalability necessary to build and operate at hybrid cloud-scale. Customers around the globe are realizing this and are exploring many different options. But the automation needs of any organization go well beyond simply creating and destroying workloads or infrastructure. If you are in any operation team focused on continuous IT governance, automated infrastructure provisioning alone will not be enough. Ansible Automation Platform gives DevOps and ITOps the ability to automate and govern at scale every aspect of the application lifecycle, but it also gives NetOps, SecOps, and FinOps the ability to automate the multitude of tasks that must be executed irrespective of application delivery.”
