Yesterday’s session was mainly focusing on the real world use case and need of automation in industries . There are some steps which need to be done again and again rendering to the waste of time . Automation not only make the process easy it also decrease the waste of resources.

- Automation is a way by which we create a software or toll which remove the human intervention again and again thus helps in doing repeatable jobs. It accelerate the process of IT industries.

- In this world of ever-growing data we have to focus on multiple small tasks and think out of the box which demands the scalability of IT Infrastructure.

- Now a days every IT industries uses Automation. Ansible is an automation tool that automate the tasks that helps in expanding the business.

- Scaling and HA are needed to share the workload and minimize failure.

- We can use Ansible automation in orchestration, config management, deployment, and task automation

- AnsibleTower solves multiple use cases for us like CI/CD with workflow, integrates SCM with Webhooks, manage encrypted credential, dashboard which is a Web UI, scaling/HA with have the same database, RedHat signed playbooks called collections.
