Manual processes are prone to human error and inconsistencies, resulting in bugs that are unpredictable, difficult to reproduce, and hard to troubleshoot. Automating the repetitive tasks such as the following results in fewer bugs and higher efficiency, freeing your team up to focus on what matters, releasing features:
- Infrastructure deployment and configuration;
- Code build, test, and deployment;
- Version management;
- Patch management; and
- Security management (e.g., credentials refresh).
