Administrators have preset routine (run book) tasks to perform either during network faults or as an ongoing maintenance task. These maintenance tasks include checking critical servers, services, and more. When the network has hundreds of devices (usually more), this maintenance process becomes daunting for the network admins as it requires substantial amount of resources and time. Luckily, with the help of network automation workflow, these repetitive, laborious maintenance tasks can now be simplified. Apart from the maintenance tasks, IT admins can design and automate workflows to troubleshoot network issues.

Why does your organization need an integrated workflow automation tool?

An IT workflow automation tool comes in handy when the network is large and constantly multiplying its resources. Just with any other software, the workflow automation software too has some challenges. The real challenge with most workflow automation tools is that they are not tightly integrated with the NMS. This is why installing a network monitoring solution that has a well-integrated and robust workflow automation platform is crucial.

Here are some reasons why you should choose an integrated workflow automation tool.

  • A versatile workflow automation system helps streamline and simplify network related tasks. This way, the repetitive manual tasks are automated and lets network administrators focus on mission critical tasks.
  • Using a workflow automation software helps reduce operational costs since the manual effort is reduced in executing repetitive tasks.
  • Integrated workflow systems ensure better visibility across various operations, thereby enabling better tracking and monitoring.
  • They also help maintain quality and consistency by executing pre-defined cascade of actions. Not just that, these workflow systems also speed up operations, resulting in an agile work environment.

Hence, installing an integrating workflow automation tool can be a game changer for your network environment.
