IT Automation Solutions

From applying the right methods to continuous testing, integration and deployment. We help you with the successful introduction of IT automation.

Your Challenges

The use of Infrastructure as Code (IaC) for IT automation must be well planned and organized. Thorough training of team members, clear processes for version control and security, and a comprehensive testing strategy are crucial for a smooth and successful deployment of IT automation. Open source tools and we, as an experienced service provider, make it easier to get started and help with the operation of the environment.

Complexity and Learning curve

Automation requires writing and understanding extensive scripts or configuration files to automate the infrastructure. This can present a steep learning curve for team members initially, especially for those who have no prior experience with infrastructure as code. The complexity of Infrastructure as Code tools and languages can delay adoption and make it difficult to adapt to new processes.

Version control and Synchronization

Automation files must be under version control to track changes and provide a consistent infrastructure. However, managing version control and synchronization can be complex, especially when multiple team members are working on the scripts at the same time. The risk of conflicts and inconsistencies between the actual infrastructure and the automation scripts increases.

Security & Compliance

Improper use of automation can lead to infrastructure security vulnerabilities. It must be ensured that sensitive information such as access data or secrets in automation scripts are adequately protected. In addition, security and compliance guidelines must be considered to ensure that the automated infrastructure meets the required standards.

Testing and Validation

Testing and validation processes for IT automation are critical to ensure infrastructure is functioning properly after deployment. It can be challenging to create testbeds to validate automations before moving them to production. In addition, regular testing must be performed to ensure that updates or changes do not have unexpected effects.

Dive into the world of IT automation with us

Collaboration

IaC encourages collaboration between developers, operations teams and other stakeholders. Everyone can work together and develop and improve the infrastructure configuration together.

Security

By using IaC, security policies and configurations can be built directly into the environments. This ensures that security standards are taken into account from the start and that no security-related configuration errors occur.

Cost savings

Through automation and increased efficiencies, organizations can reduce costs by spending less time on manual administrative tasks and making the most of their resources.

State of the art Infrastructure as Code

^

With Terraform by HashiCorp you can create, change and improve infrastructures safely and traceably. Terraform abstracts the APIs of different providers with so-called providers. In this way, the configuration of your infrastructure can be documented in an audit-proof manner and shared and edited by all team members.

Regular tasks abstractly automate

^

Even in large environments, servers, networks and applications are often still automated manually, uneconomically and inefficiently. A solution to this problem is called Puppet: Regularly recurring tasks such as installations and configuration changes are only described centrally and then rolled out.
