Automation everywhere enables better innovation

    Businesses are operating in an unprecedented time of turbulence and disruption, writes Ultima.

    Cloud has transformed business operations and enabled remote working, and it allows companies to reduce infrastructure costs, offering the ability to flex up and down according to their current need. However, the manual processes required to operate workloads in the cloud are often fraught with human errors leading to delays, spiralling costs and security vulnerabilities. At the same time, remote working needs to be more robust and secure. Automation holds the key to addressing these issues.

    At Ultima, we have invested heavily in developing our own cutting-edge automated software solutions for cloud, workspace, network and security to help our customers make the most of cloud. We believe managing core infrastructure is not something you should be spending a lot of money on. Our technology releases some of that time and money so your IT department can focus on the things they should be doing, like driving innovation in the business.

    By automating maintenance, security and support requirements, the benefits of the cloud can be delivered without the operational pain points.

    Our Autonomous Cloud solutions allow organisations to inoculate their business-critical environments with automation services immediately achieving low-cost, software-driven cloud disaster recovery in three hours, remote working in three days and a full autonomous cloud datacentre in three weeks.

    Meanwhile, Autonomous Edge, Ultima’s product for workforce automation, provides powerful capabilities for companies to manage devices and applications remotely and securely.

    Running infrastructure in the cloud is typically 50% cheaper than on-premise infrastructure for SMEs, and Autonomous Cloud is, on average, three times cheaper than having your skilled-up cloud team in-house.

    The companies that don’t embrace this kind of autonomous environment will almost certainly be left behind in the new normal that emerges post-Covid.
