    • Compelling Events for Automation• Middleware Upgrades It’s great when new vendorsbring out new features - but often taking advantage ofthem takes a good deal of time and effort to upgradethe new infrastructure - and introduces risk. Automatingthe upgrade project speeds it up, reduces the risk andbuilds a more manageable platform in the future.• Migrating off ‘Premium Product’ With the economyas it is, more organizations are forced to tighten theirbelts, and one area that has come under particularscrutiny is the annual cost of maintaining installedsoftware. Some organizations have made the decisionto move less business critical applications off moreexpensive middleware onto open-source platformssuch as JBoss and Tomcat. This type of project isaccelerated when it’s automated and an automationtool makes managing hybrid or heterogeneousenvironments much easier.• Building a PAAS or a private cloud With pressureon businesses to deliver more innovation to theircustomers, faster, we see many of our customersbuilding Platforms As A Service and private clouds.These are a lot faster and quicker to set up using anautomation tool, and a lot quicker to manage demandonce they are up and running.• Core business application upgrades or migrationsMany of our customers occasionally need to upgradeor even replace their core business applications - oftencomplex, multi-layered, integrated systems that haveevolved over time and have many integration pointsand are absolutely critical to the minute by minuteoperations of the business. Using an automation toolcan reduce the risk and time associated with sucha project.• Platform migrations Sometimes it’s time to movefrom one platform to another - for instance, customerssometimes feel that a UNIX based platform willoffer them performance advantages over an OS400platform. But moving hundreds of middlewareapplications might seem like a challenge too far -without automation.• Rearchitecting Change is a constant and businessesneed to continually evolve their IT infrastructureand operations, build new environments for thingslike Disaster Recovery and automating the buildand deployment of these new environments meansdelivering them faster.SSH Insights• You need to connect your RapidDeploy™server to your targets in order to performdeployments - but do you want an agent basedor agentless deploy?
