Bonus Tip: Working in IT, you’re likely doing the same tasks over and over. What if you could solve problems once and then automate your solutions going forward?

Ansible is here to help. Ansible is a simple automation language that can perfectly describe an IT application infrastructure. It’s easy-to-learn, self-documenting, and doesn’t require a grad-level computer science degree to read. Automation shouldn’t be more complex than the tasks it’s replacing. Build your Ansible skills with Training from Red Hat. Red Hat Training and Certification helps IT professionals become skilled, proven, and ready to successfully automate, configure, and manage Ansible to create and standardize centralized automation practices that add business value and build a strong foundation for DevOps.

Cloud Computing and IT Operations

Cloud computing occupies a unique spot in IT history. Existing systems were migrated to cloud providers, and companies found benefits in cost and flexibility while working through issues around security and integration. Today, though cloud offers a path for business transformation. Powerful new capabilities and complex automation can completely change the entire organization. As such, cloud computing bridges two eras of enterprise technology, moving IT from a heavily tactical function to a valuable strategic asset.

Bridging the Gap Between Operational Technology and Information Technology

The Internet of Things (IoT) is ushering in a new era of networked computing where advanced applications intelligently monitor and control remote sensors, mobile devices, and smart machines. The IoT blurs the line between traditional operational technology (OT) systems and information technology (IT) systems.

The IoT brings the ability to connect devices, systems, and applications to create a flexible, interoperable environment that includes components from the smallest devices to the largest data centers. Legacy machine-to-machine (M2M) systems—traditionally used for a single purpose and consisting of a single type of device or sensor and a single, pre-determined connectivity method—can now be re-invented or replaced by more powerful, continually evolving IoT solutions. Proprietary operational control systems are giving way to new, open solutions based on standard IT platforms and protocols.

How to organize your Sourcing Governance

As long as IT has existed, so has the problem of insufficient alignment between IT provider and business. The challenge has been one of ‘moving goalposts’. In recent years, major changes have been taking place. On the one hand, business processes are becoming increasingly dependent on IT, and customers are developing ever-higher expectation levels that in turn impose even greater requirements on IT support processes. On the other hand, IT services are being forced to deal with shrinking budgets and increasingly complex IT landscapes. The number of applications in use is rising, the influence of internet is growing still further and demand for mobile applications is increasing significantly. Add to this complexity the strategic options of outsourcing, offshoring and cloud computing, and it becomes readily apparent that those responsible for IT governance are being faced with an extremely complicated decision- making process.
