As Ovum puts it:
“Automation is becoming an essential approach to infrastructure management, to allow organizations to deal with the many demands that converge in this area. Lack of automation is already preventing organizations from benefiting from newer technologies. For example, lack of dynamic management to enforce business needs in a virtualized environment results in greater labor costs, which can obliterate the hardware cost savings that the technology makes possible.
Increasingly, organizations looking at adoption of a cloud approach recognize that adding cloud based resources to the management of their existing environment would fail to yield benefits if managing manually, and reactively, were the only option. Indeed, costs may well increase. Across all types of technology usage, the enforcement of business control and compliance is essential in today’s corporate environment, whether to ensure the right security protection is in place or to keep the asset inventory under control. Underlying this growing list of requirements is the need for efficiency, and cost reduction continues to be a focus as enterprises try to cope with all of these needs and the greater demands on the IT function generally.”
