Repeating the same action over and over again can be time-consuming and tedious. Automation and orchestration solutions from CDW take away the pain of infrastructure provisioning and management.

As IT teams are asked to deliver more services more quickly and with less resource, the setup and operation of IT infrastructure can become a major bottleneck. Manually configuring resources for every request and managing workloads individually takes significant time, even in small environments, reducing the availability of the IT team to deliver new services and provide support.

Meeting this challenge needn't be challenging. CDW can show you how to use the tools you probably already have to template virtual machine (VM) provisioning, simplify patch management and monitor more effectively.

As you gain experience and confidence, we can show you how to provide automated services to others in the organisation so that they can build on top of them, reducing deployment times and improving service delivery.

Orchestration of systems follows from there with the ability to use configuration management tools and continuous integration and continuous delivery (CI/CD) pipelines to deliver infrastructure as code. This also opens up the potential to integrate with other systems and tools, such as ServiceNow, creating an IT-as-a-service catalogue that spans the full hybrid infrastructure.

Whether you're just getting started or looking to move to the next level, CDW's range of solutions, partners and services will support you every step of the way.
