  • Automation is a powerful tool. It strips time and cost out of processes, minimizes errors, and frees up skilled staff to focus on higher value activities. Most IT teams have already capitalized in some part on automation, and most IT professionals can see the potential in extending automation across the enterprise. But how do you embed automation in the company IT DNA? Where do you start in the journey from script automation towards enterprise-wide process automation?

    In this session you will learn how you can scale automation to an enterprise-level through the adoption of a Center of Excellence. Our proven approach creates a cohesive framework for automation and breaks through silos, so your organization benefits from economies of scale and the advantages that automation brings.

    Crossing the chasm from development and test of complex enterprise applications to actually deploying and keeping them up-to-date can be a treacherous trail lined with increasing customer demands, rapidly changing technology, and shrinking resources. Automation is key, and piecing together a scripted approach to automation won’t get you to the other side.

    That’s why rPath is bundling support and services to ease migration for users who’ve tried to achieve enterprise application automation with Puppet and have come up short.

    With rPath Cloud Engine 6.5, Puppet users can...

    • Keep scripts and modules you’ve created
    • Easily migrate from a complex programming to push-button automation
    • Use platform-agnostic App GPS technology to ensure fast, consistent, reliable application deployment, update, and maintenance
    • Throw away old-school layered approaches and leverage the speed of image deployment
    • Have real Windows support

    rPath customers can use Puppet bundling, including full support, at no extra cost.
