Automation in IT refers to the use of software to manage applications or IT tasks without human intervention. Automated tasks can be triggered by IT or business events, or tasks can be scheduled to run at specific times. IT automation is related to business process automation (BPA) but focuses on IT processes, data and infrastructure automation. Modern automation technologies such as Redwood are considered cloud-native IT automation solutions.
An example of IT automation is automated software testing. In this process, test cases run automatically without manual intervention. The tests can run frequently, with every code change, to catch bugs and ensure the software is functioning as expected.
Another example is network automation, which involves using software for configuration management and automation, and monitoring network devices like routers, switches, and firewalls. This may include tasks like automatically provisioning new devices, updating firmware, and monitoring network performance. Learn how Redwood can help your organization with IT automation software.

IT automation and IT orchestration are related concepts in the field of IT management, but they refer to different things.
IT automation focuses on automating individual tasks, while IT orchestration focuses on coordinating and managing multiple IT systems and processes to achieve a specific goal. IT orchestration can use IT automation techniques, but it goes beyond just automation to include coordination and management of multiple systems and processes.

No, IT automation solutions are separate from robotic process automation (RPA), though it is possible to manage RPA with IT automation software. RPA software relies on front-end integrations to complete rules-based tasks such as data entry. IT automation uses programmatic integrations to coordinate event-based processes across disparate systems. You can think of RPA as front-office and IT automation as back office. See how you can automate back office tasks with Redwood automation software.
The cost of IT automation software varies depending on a number of factors. Some IT automation software can be purchased as a one-time license, while others may be offered subscription-based.
The price of most IT automation software ranges depending on the size of the organization, number of jobs that are being run, connectors and if any additional add-ons or services are needed. Get pricing on Redwood’s IT automation services.
