VMware vRealize Automation is a hybrid cloud automation platform that transforms IT service delivery. With vRealize Automation, customers can increase agility, productivity and efficiency through automation, by reducing the complexity of their IT environment, streamlining IT processes and delivering a DevOps-ready automation platform.
Managing a hybrid and/or multi-cloud environment to support the needs of IT operations, business operations, DevOps, lines of business and developers is complicated. Infrastructure and application provisioning is semi-automated, with multiple tools and scripts, leading to inefficiency, low productivity, inconsistency, and security and compliance risks. With vRealize Automation, users get the services they need when they need them, and DevOps teams manage the release automation process, while IT maintains security and governance.
