Automation is everywhere. With the speed of modern business continuously accelerating, companies must deliver better products to market faster. But extended release cycles, error-prone releases, and unauthorized shadow IT make keeping up with market demands difficult. In this new digital landscape, automation has become a critical part of DevOps ability to enact and enforce best practices, and take advantage of appropriate skills that can support IT and help businesses overcome these challenges.
The release of Red Hat Enterprise Linux 8 brought with it a renewed focus on the power of enterprise automation with Red Hat Ansible Automation Platform. With this change in mind, the Red Hat Training team has evolved our course offerings to make automation foundational to our course material and certifications and best prepare IT professionals at any stage in their career for an industry shifting towards automated systems.
