Automation Consulting

Neutral consulting for your individual projects

Secure and efficient IT has become more important than ever for business growth. A sophisticated automation strategy can therefore be the key to success. Investments in the development and expansion of IT service management (ITSM) and automation solutions usually pay off after a short time, because potential for optimization exists in almost every company.

Often, this potential has already been identified, tapped, and various ITSM and automation solutions are available for this purpose. The automation strategy is as individual as your digitization and cloud strategy. Various tool manufacturers have established themselves on the market to serve these individual automation needs.

Automation Guide

What is an Automation Guide?

Most companies are aware of the need to automate their IT infrastructure, but those responsible have different starting points. On the one hand, the individual departments have to provide services ever faster, but are tied up by time-consuming routine activities in their day-to-day business. On the other hand, management has to optimize important business processes and drive innovations, the implementation of which places an additional burden on the departments. The problem on the part of the specialist departments therefore tends to be a lack of time resources, but for management the focus is usually on cost reduction.

In both cases, however, it is often not known what potential for automation actually exists, both in the specialist departments and at company level in the overarching business processes. Many companies thus miss out on enormous opportunities to save time and money. The FLOWSTER Automation Guide provides important clues to determine the automation potential and to implement it profitably.

Bottom-up approach

The FLOWSTER Automation Guide in the bottom-up approach looks at possible use cases in the individual departments on the basis of technical interviews. In open workshops, both already known use cases and previously ignored areas are identified. In addition to the technical feasibility for automation, the implementation is also evaluated commercially, so that a concrete consideration of the time savings per use case is possible.

Top-down approach

The FLOWSTER Automation Guide in the top down approach analyzes the complaint and ordering processes on IT level. It provides a comprehensive view of frequently occurring errors (incidents), which, in addition to unnecessary costs for the IT department, also mean significantly higher follow-up costs due to downtime for the entire company. The errors uncovered in this way can be avoided or reduced in the future through automation, and the resources freed up as a result can be used more sensibly for root cause analysis.

THE AUTOMATION GUIDE IN PRACTICE

The FLOWSTER Automation Guide formed the basis of an IT automation project at Würth Elektronik eiSos GmbH & Co. KG to identify potential automats and thus drive the holistic automation of IT infrastructure processes.  

Joachim Süpple (Head of IT) and Denis Schlumpberger (Team Leader IT Backoffice Systems) explain how they have implemented holistic concepts and methods for IT automation in their own company.
