Orchestration and virtualization

A well-orchestrated workflow is no longer a convenience

Orchestration and virtualization are helping the IT industry move away from old school rigid and inflexible platforms and toward more agile, flexible, and virtualized environments. A well-orchestrated work flow is no longer a convenience, but a necessity.

Effective use of automation and orchestration is all about a business’s bottom line.

The automation of repetitive tasks and the synchronization of the workflow allow better use of engineering personnel and resources to meet the growing demands of new innovations. With a reduction in hands-on human management, an IT organization can do more with a static budget.

Orchestration is about human proofing the workflow. It’s about efficiency and innovation.

Orchestration is about doing more.

Orchestration and Virtualization for your well organized workflow

Orchestration is about enablement

It’s about highly skilled employees being re-focused on the architectural and planning work they originally signed up for rather than constantly battling service level agreements and ticketing systems. It’s about non-networking types being able to self-provision the resources and connectivity they require to do their jobs, speeding the deployment of business critical applications.

Orchestration is about human proofing the workflow

Diverse agents working on related tasks are no longer each other’s stumbling blocks. There is less opportunity for “fat-fingering” and other mistakes that cost the enterprise untold amount of money and time in unnecessary troubleshooting. There is even reclamation, meaning an environment can clean itself up when the resources are no longer required rather than having bits and pieces of it hanging around for years because the originator forgot and everyone else is too scared to touch it.

Orchestration is about efficiency

It’s like having an automated project manager to ensure that tasks are completed in a timely fashion and in the correct order, and that seamlessness means that no one is sitting around waiting for the ball. Organizational chargebacks, tracking of resource utilization and reclamation of resources that are no longer needed allow IT to prove value rather than the traditional view that it is just a huge cost sink.

It’s a precursor to innovation
