What is automation?
Automation is the use of software to perform tasks in order to reduce cost, complexity, and errors. It is prevalent in IT systems and business decision software, and can also be found in other industries like manufacturing, robotics, vehicle control, and more.IT automation uses repeatable instructions to replace an IT professional’s manual work.
