Secret 3: Orchestrate or Continue to Complicate

For your journey to digital transformation, it’s critical to understand the importance of orchestration. Orchestration goes hand in hand with automation, however it offers a key distinction. It should liberate you and your end users from manual and cumbersome tasks. Admins can also coordinate functions, security, teams, compliance activities, and cloud services with orchestration.

In short, orchestration is all about the automation of multiple tasks. These include optimizing coding to prevent error; coordination, arrangement and management for cloud services and systems; management of networks and connections to disparate systems, including those in different geographic regions, and others. Get orchestrating—you’ll be glad you did.
