Financial institutions (FIs) across APAC are adopting modern, distributed IT architectures, along with Agile and DevOps practices in response to widespread disruptions caused by rapid changes in competition, demand, technology, and regulations. Such a response, however, is also dramatically increasing the operational complexity of FIs' infrastructure environments. If FIs want to streamline their operations and seamlessly integrate these new and existing IT resources into an optimized, manageable environment, infrastructure automation is prerequisite.
As FIs embark on automation they are going to need a framework for managing an organization-wide automation adoption journey. That journey will encompass multiple facets from introducing new technology to aligning teams on standard practices to orchestrating powerful workflows that fit with FIs evolving business objectives.
