The role and significance of information systems in business operations are constantly increasing. Technological changes follow each other quickly, and new features and services need to be continuously provided in line with business requirements. However, this continuous development also brings new challenges, and managing systems is becoming an increasingly complex task. As a result, IT professionals need new tools and solutions in order to make system operations more efficient and cost-effective. Automation is one such tool that can greatly contribute to more efficient system operations and lower costs.
Automation allows many tasks and processes of IT systems to be performed automatically, reducing the possibility of human errors and optimizing system utilization. With automation, system administrators can easily and quickly perform repetitive, routine tasks such as managing system logins, installing updates, or performing regular backups. In addition, automation allows system administrators to easily scale, modify or manage infrastructure services such as network communication, storage, or virtualization.
Through automation, system administrators spend less time on manual interventions and tasks, allowing them to focus more on system optimization, error correction, and the introduction of new services. This can greatly contribute to increasing system reliability and availability, as well as improving business results for the company as a whole.
However, automation can bring benefits not only to system administrators but also to the entire company.
