Quite often, automation of IT processes is associated with enormous investments and with high complexity. The best way to receive a proof of concept is to try the bottom-up automation approach – to gain instant results in repetitive tasks and later on develop an end-to-end IT automation strategy. Thanks to CUDATO Robotic Process Automation this is easily achievable.
Typical IT tasks that can be automated using RPA:
Password resets can take up dozens of hours of work for Your IT staff depending on a user requests number. In some severe cases handling password reset calls can take up to 40% of a working day. The typical password resets procedure looks like this:
Constant monitoring and cleaning up disk space is very time-consuming and one of the most frequent tasks of the IT staff, which, in case of neglection, can cause unplanned server downtime. A very simple issue that can cause server crashes are large log files that take up disk space.
An automated disk clean-up scenario looks this:
Monitoring application files and folders for data integrity is critical for security and compliance reasons. The automated data monitoring scenario consists of these steps:
Restarting servers each time because of changes to application configuration, system crashes or memory clean-ups can drive anybody nuts. Robots can perform server restarts on alert triggers or on schedule. A typical automation scenario looks like this:
Using shared domain accounts to run applications on Windows servers is a common practice. It is recommended for administrators to change up passwords every two months. As a rule, the credentials used by services should be manually updated on each server. Automation speeds up the service account change process, eliminate errors and meets the required regulations. The typical scenario looks like this:
Is repeatedly executing data extraction queries and emailing the results a typical task? RPA can automate data retrieval from an SQL database, output it to an Excel file and send it to a user that demanded it or run on schedule
Using Robotic Process Automation for IT tasks can save money on workforce and protect You from server downfalls. Robots can be deployed in a very short period of time and will work 24/7/365.
