I was lucky enough to partake in a podcast recently with colleagues Sam Perrin and Stuart Robinson of Xtravirt. If you want to learn more about automation then please check it out!

This episode outlines:

  • What is automation?
  • The common reasons businesses are automating business processes.
  • Some of tools being used in automation – from Puppet and Chef for configuration management to HashiCorp’s options for provisioning, security and the running of applications.
  • The need for businesses to take a business logic first approach to automation projects.
  • Some common mistakes to avoid.
  • How Xtravirt have designed workshops and best practice methodologies to ensure automation projects stay on track and deliver the business outcomes they were intended to.
