IT Service Automation

The Business Challenge 

Automation in IT has been a key intitiative for many organizations as they try to achieve efficiencies in IT Operations,  mitigate risk and improve compliance. Still, the results have fallen short of expectations. While individual areas may have good automation, whether through point solutions or custom development, overall processes often require manual tasks or significant scripting to join disparate pieces together. As a result, IT departments are forced to operate in fire-fighting mode, rushing from emergency to emergency without time to focus on strategic tasks and goals. 

The results are seen accross many organizations:
  • Lack of efficiency in IT Operations, which can lead to outages and downtime. 
  • Compliance audits often cover only a portion of the IT estate. 
  • Documentation is incomplete and time-consuming to generate, and remediation efforts are hampered by disconnected processes. 
  • Communication across teams is inefficient, frequently working only thanks to informal relationships.

Based on years of experience with some of the largest IT organizations in Europe, Bright Consulting can identify specific areas for improvement and deliver an end-to-end solution for IT Process Automation.
