Automation and Orchestration

In this step of your IT Transformation Journey

Your infrastructure is configured to enable you to apply IT service management (ITSM) to your virtualized data center. Once you apply cloud computing concepts, such as self service, consumption-based metering and chargeback, to this type of automated environment, you can build a service catalog and apply ITIL best practices. ITIL/ITSM requirements include incident, problem and change management; dynamically updating a configuration management database (CMDB); and aligning your technology with business priorities and policies.

What does that mean for your business? It means leaner, more effective IT that can be more easily aligned with your business goals. By automating important processes and creating templates for routine procedure, you can ensure best-in-class IT performance while keeping staffing and other overhead costs low.

How can we help you?

Logicalis provides you with an ITSM implementation process that ensures success. Our proven implementation templates streamline ITSM rollouts, while our best-practice Requirement Analysis helps you avoid pitfalls. We also tailor process definitions to help you get the specific process support you need. Not only do we help our customers define and implement best practices for ITSM, but we live ITIL and SSAE every day in our own operations centers.

Our automation and orchestration solution can help you develop a software-defined data center that increases speed to deployment and ensures the availability of your key compute, storage and network resources, while also enabling consumption-based metering and chargeback.
