  • Building and maintaining data center servers can be a time consuming and error prone process. Highly skilled administrators can spend a great deal of painstakingly installing and configuring software which takes time away from task that could deliver more business value. With the automation capabilities delivered in Server Automation the server build task can be captured in scripts and reused by less skilled workers to free up the time of highly skilled workers to add more business value. This enables IT to improve customer satisfaction by delivering servers and new services faster. In many cases the time to build a server can be reduced from days or weeks to hours. These large increases in productivity is just what the line of business and CFOs are looking for in today’s fast paced environment. In addition this same automation capability can be used to maintain the servers and automate what can be a complex set of steps for applying patches to tiered application environments.Transition: Let’s see how automate can save time and money with an example.
  • Endpoint Manager provides a number of out of the box fixlets that perform a variety of tasks and the number of fixlets grows every week. These fixlets can be used as is or customized to meet the specific needs of your environment. In the example at the right a multi-tier application needs to be upgraded. This application uses a database server, application server and code on the client workstation that must be upgraded in order and each step is dependent on the previous steps. With Server Automation these steps can be coded in a script without the need for programming skills. The script can be saved and reused as a basis for other automation tasks, saving time and money. Through the Endpoint Manager console the status of the automation plans can be viewed and followed to completion. These automation capabilities can result in significant cost savings and operational efficiency. Transition: The addition of Endpoint Manager for Server Automation can truly expand your endpoint management to new levels.
