Scalability and the need for implementing Scalable Automations
Scalability is essential for a company’s operational health as it enables employees to handle unexpected surges in demand. The necessity for scalability is evident, even in your company’s daily tasks. One day you can find that your web traffic has increased dramatically. Are you prepared enough to handle it? It can go beyond that too.
Did you find a bug in one of your client-facing automated processes malfunctioning? Incidents like these can result in an inflow of customer queries or service requests that require immediate attention. Can you resolve all the requests and fix the process before it requires all your employees’ engagement? Well, if your automated processes are scalable, you most certainly can.
The general idea of scalability is to stand your ground when you are expected to perform beyond your perceived capability. The first step to guaranteeing you implement effective, scalable solutions is to identify the entire structure of your business. A common misconception about scalability is that you can locate crucial processes and automate and scale them to transform a business digitally. But doing that will mean the company might have to deconstruct the process.
The right way to implement scalable solutions is to make the solution relevant to the entire structure. One scalable automation among multiple outdated processes might initially deliver results but eventually result in technical debt.
There can arise a situation that needs the support of immediate scalability. These incidents will require the valuable time of your human resources. This is precisely where automation comes in. Scalable solutions can be implemented dramatically faster if automation enhances their ability. You cannot expect to meet the increasing demand by allotting every employee to perform all the tasks manually. Automation is faster, requires fewer resources, and can identify potential threats and issues to the process.
How can you empower your IT to implement scalability effectively?
It is not practical to expect your existing team to take up scalability tasks entirely. It is also not efficient to hire new teams so that automation tools can assist your team.
Developers can use Shared Objects, Variables, References, No-Code Universal Connectors, And Low-Code API accessibility to increase efficiency and speed. Automation tools can support developers in improving processes on a large scale while removing the margin for human error.
IT operators must look closely at everything as management is their duty. But if things are happening faster than usual, they need assistance from a few tools. Alerting, Auto-Remediation and Intelligent Provisioning tools will increase operator capabilities and assist them in delivering faster responses.
In addition to the above, Self-Service Automation, Drag and Drop GUI, And Mobile Access ensure easy access. This allows more effortless data transfer, quicker workflow assemblies, and access irrespective of time and location.
