Diverse IT infrastructures that combine on-premise with virtual- or cloud-based applications, DevOps, and the ability to deploy services on-demand are the new mantras of the digital transformation.
With this transformation come a series of challenges for IT organizations. This includes the ability to increase agility and scalability, minimize human errors, extend IT administrative capabilities to nontechnical users, and drive flexibility into infrastructure planning and budgeting.
Automation is crucial to building, deploying and managing applications. As a cornerstone of managing applications and their underlying infrastructure, ADCs must address the aforementioned challenges by automating the application lifecycle and optimizing application performance.
