85% of Organizations Plan to Increase Automation by 2025

The management of infrastructure and operations has been a largely human-led task so far, but in spite of the fact that this is the case recent reports are indicating that we might start to see a higher level of automation within the I&O departments of organizations than might have been the case otherwise. According to a recent survey conducted by Gartner, around 85% of industry leaders in the infrastructure and operations department stated that they plan to increase their levels of automation by 2025.

With all of that having been said and now out of the way, it is important to note that this represents a huge increase from the 20% of organizations who indicated that they had implemented various levels of automation last year in 2021. 70% of the organizations that responded to this survey said that they plan to implement structured automation because of the fact that this is the sort of thing that could potentially end up increasing efficiency across the board.

The automation of I&O processes is largely focused on a few key areas, with 47% of industry leaders stating that application deployment was one of their primary areas of focus with all things having been considered and taken into account. Workload automation, analytics and device deployment for end users are also top priorities with the first two being mentioned by 43% of survey respondents and the last one receiving 41%.
83% of I&O specialists who are working in analytics and monitoring stated that automation could be quite useful for them, but only 43% reported currently using automation to any extent. 75% of incident resolution teams also said that they want increase automation, since only 36% of them can rely on it right now.

Automation is the future of most industries, and this is especially true in the field of infrastructure and operations. This is a broad field that covers many of the aspects of a business, and if automation is slowly implemented this might do a lot to boost efficiency. 21% of leaders in I&O have already reported successful automation, and the number is sure to increase in the future.
