Workload automation or scheduling technology will already be running important processes in your business. But it’s unlikely you’ll have a clear understanding of how your organization really uses automation, or what is truly possible using modern workload automation.
Over the decades, the workload automation and scheduling technology landscape has evolved with disconnected silos and layers. As a result, recent analyst research suggests that only 8% of IT leaders believe they have a unified approach to automation.
Modern workload automation and job scheduling solutions offer tremendous productivity and efficiency benefits. They free people from as much repetitive manual effort as possible in three key areas:
- Reduce the need for manual interaction between business processes supported by IT applications
- Minimize the human effort required to configure and manage automated processes
- Reduce the amount of manual effort overhead needed to operate automated processes
With many businesses evaluating digital processes to maximize productivity and efficiency – particularly in the face of reduced or remote workforces as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic – consider an assessment to assist IT professionals in understanding how automation can drive transformation across their organization.
Your assessment should cover five critical areas that are supported by your automation maturity: technology utilization, effective management, operational efficiency, strategy, and alignment of IT and the business.
