System automation is the linking of disparate systems and software in such a way that they become self-acting or self-regulating.
Events can be precisely monitored for prompt and appropriate reaction as well as recording history for long term data analysis. Some of the automated systems include:
- Network Outage
- Periodic Reports
For the deployment of systems in larger numbers, tools can be put into place to facilitate getting the systems ready for use as rapidly as possible whether it be for new systems, upgrades, or disaster recovery. Minimizing downtime so that these systems are doing what they are designed to do by configuring them to work on themselves!
