Automation is the cornerstone of accelerating IT in the cloud.
Automation, like security, exists in every aspect of a Cloud Enabled Enterprise. For applications, automation takes the form of DevOps and streamlined Continuous Integration (CI) / Continuous Delivery (CD)pipelines. For Security, SecOps provides the means to keep pace with the speed of cloud development while not sacrificing your organization's security controls. In networking, NetOps can be automation that is simple scripting against APIs, or it can be as complex as SD-WAN, which can apply intelligence to the routing of traffic on a workload−by−workload basis.
