Save Time and Resources with Server Automation

Topics in this article

Discover how built-in automation and intelligent systems management technology in the Dell EMC PowerEdge server portfolio can help drive enterprise productivity.

Today’s IT departments face significant challenges on several fronts. They need to manage multiple workloads, respond quickly, and decrease downtime across both the IT infrastructure and the wider organization – while also making a positive contribution to the overall strategic direction of the business. Do your customers typically complain about these frustrations too?

It’s a demanding task list, of course, but not an impossible situation. The solution lies in the ability to implement successful server automation – because embracing IT automation generally increases performance while also creating business advantage.

Automating helps companies to take advantage of a more efficient data center. Which means that, with the right tools and processes in place, your customers can save time and crucial resources. When they’re not required to spend so much time on routine tasks, IT staff can take on more strategic activities that add value to the organization.

Server automation can help free up time and resources

It’s clear that making a smart, strategic investment to automate the server infrastructure and use intelligent systems management tools can help increase productivity.

In a new eBook¹, Dell EMC states that server automation helps companies overcome common frustrations such as:

• Slow response time (only 30% of business users consider their IT to be distributed, agile and flexible);
• Inefficient management (nearly 70% of time is spent maintaining existing IT environments);
• Increasing downtime (up to 75% of downtime is caused by manual and disconnected IT processes);
• Customer retention (IDG predicts a 25% drop in customer retention in 2019 for those failing to incorporate automation into their roadmap);
• AI implementation (71% of organizations say inefficiencies due to lack of server automation are a challenge to their AI strategies).
