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

The intuitive drag-n-drop workflow builder makes it simple to create new workflow rules for every administrator. Besides defining new workflows, you can modify an existing workflow by making changes to the conditions or actions inside the workflow builder.
The application of IT run book automation can be initiated when there is a network fault, or as ongoing maintenance tasks, or even on an ad-hoc basis. OpManager IT workflow automation module gives you the free hand to trigger workflow in all the aforementioned situations.
Using OpManager, seasoned administrators who are well-informed of their organization’s IT setup, can create IT workflow rules to meet the organization’s requirement. Contextual workflows address your specific IT automation needs, leading to minimized downtime and reduced time to repair a fault. These structured, time invested, useful documents can now be preserved as XML files with the option to export the workflows and also import them even into other instances of OpManager when there is a need.
Every executed workflow is recorded under "Execution logs" for future audits. This report comes handy when the administrators want to make sure what has happened during a particular workflow execution.
