CHAPTER 5   ·   OVERVIEW

Holistic approach

As IT automation grows across your organization it can mean orchestrating new processes among people, tools, and technology. 

For end-to-end automation to succeed and scale, you need a framework that enables automation to grow independently across the organization. This is when management and governance become a key factor for success. 

Consider this: when there are no controls in place it becomes much easier for an error to be replicated, or for teams to be misaligned. When planning management and governance, the following should be included in your priorities:

  • Provide access to automation to the right people.

  • Adhere to organizational policy and security standards.

  • Establish clear lines of accountability.

  • Address risk to realize business benefits and innovation.

  • Choose solutions that provide auditability.
