The promise of workflow modernization through automation is great—speed, efficiency, and productivity are the hallmarks. But, the process to get there can be complex: How do you prioritize and modernize those designated workflows as you move to new platforms or implement new processes and ways of working? With workflow modernization, your organization can become fully cross functional, enabling all teams to collaborate to create automation content. 

Learn a strategic approach to workflow automation and gain actionable guidance on how to make operations more repeatable, predictable, and automated. You’ll learn how to: 

  • Bring a DevOps mindset and approach to the network. 
  • Create fully automated workflows that are interchangeable between projects. 
  • Extend the power of Ansible automation across the enterprise.
