Linking Silos for Digital Transformation | @CloudExpo #DX #Cloud #Automation
We continue to take advantage of digital innovation, but in doing so create a number of operational management challenges

Be the Master of Your Domain – Linking Silos for Digital Transformation
By Mark Nation

As consumers in the age of digital innovation, we benefit from an abundance of technologies, each seeking to simplify our daily lives. Be it Apple, Amazon or Google, our digital service providers are only too happy for us to take advantage of their latest cool apps or funky new tools. With so much free stuff and low cost pay as you go options, we've never had it so good. It's a no brainer, win-win for both consumer and producer. Or is it?

We acquire and inherit apps and devices with significant functional overlap. And should we defer the rationalization of these tools, it leaves us with operational management challenges - keeping multiple phones means maintaining multiple address books, transferring music out of iTunes on to your Samsung device and so on. Clearly, the benefits of consolidating your digital assets will help you save money, as well as make your life simpler. However, in doing so, you create a migration project - one that can be time consuming, complicated and frustrating.

Inheriting Technology in Business
This scenario is analogous to the role technology and its management play in the corporate world. Many organizations have an enterprise IT environment which incorporates an array of technology that has been acquired or inherited, more or less by chance. These include in-house customer developed and packaged applications, distributed and legacy mainframe systems, databases duplicated in multiple locations and infrastructure management tools. If the organization in question then buys another company, a vast quantity of new systems, tools and processes will also need to be supported. The consequence? Large scale challenges of migration, integration, visibility and compliance.

A strategy that rationalizes and normalizes the IT systems an organization relies on can help achieve cost savings, and moreover, address corporate challenges such as compliance and visibility. This is where automation comes in; not only can an automation platform help organize and orchestrate what is going on right now, it will provide a centralized management portal and help prepare an organization for the adoption of future technical innovations.

The Automic automation platform can make your life easier when orchestrating your tools and technologies. It provides a unified interface along with integrations for pre-existing elements of your technology stack, linking together otherwise isolated silos within an organization. It is a strategic platform that mitigates the indirect costs of migration, integration and poor visibility.

Ultimately, an effective automation tool will enable you to support innovation and take control of your company's IT processes. At the same time, any such solution should be both scalable and flexible enough to adapt to any future demands thrust upon your organization by digital disruption.
