Application Service Management: Automation Challenges, Solutions

The major challenges for automation in application service management are 3S – Standard, Security, and Sustenance. Or more fully defined:

  • Standards - Lack of standards across Applications results in low levels of accountability. Disparate Applications result in inadequate collaboration between teams, information systems which result in further complexities. There are increased chances of duplication of efforts resulting in reduced productivity.
  • Security - Automation Exposes Enterprises to Cyberattacks and Outages resulting in organizations experienced a security breach, application and network outages.
  • Sustenance - The key to maintaining automated application service management requires an organized strategy, along with a long-term vision and master plan. This strategy will enable the application management team to continually monitor the facility and make simple course corrections to keep the operation and maintenance on a sustainable path.
