Marked increases in ROI and productivity lead Federal IT pros to prioritize automating help desk, network configuration, patch, and compliance and log management in 2014

SolarWinds, a leading provider of powerful and affordable IT management software, today announced the results of its survey among IT professionals in the public sector, revealing how the automation of various information technologies has saved government organizations time and money and increased the productivity of IT teams. The 162 IT pros that completed the survey also revealed their plans to continue automation investments in 2014.

Federal IT pros are saving time and money, increasing productivity with automation

• More than 84 percent of survey respondents said the automation of information technology initiatives in their IT infrastructures was a time- and money-saving investment for their teams, and 67 percent of respondents have seen increases in their teams’ productivity as a result of investments in automation.
• Of those that have already begun to implement a variety of automation technologies, network configuration management was determined the most valuable tool in terms of time and money saved by over 58 percent of respondents, followed by help desk automation (42 percent), • IP address management (39 percent), and application/server provisioning and configuration management (37 percent).
• Help desks, in fact, are already fully automated by 77 percent of federal IT pros.
• Despite growing adoption of IT automation, 53 percent of respondents said their IT departments have not hired any new IT pros in the past two years.

Automation for full IT infrastructure a priority for 2014
Sixty-three percent of respondents are planning an automation project during 2014

• At least two-thirds of survey respondents said they are already in the process of implementing a variety of technologies including the following (percentages indicating those that have completed or plan to implement the technology in 2014):
- Help desk management (91 percent)
- Network configuration management (84 percent)
- Patch management (83 percent)
- Log management (82 percent)
- Application/server management (67 percent)

• Sixty percent of respondents are investing or plan to invest in tools to automate compliance.

So why aren’t all government organizations automating IT?
Nearly 54 percent of respondents said the biggest challenge to the successful rollout of automation technologies is budgetary restrictions, and others added that integration with existing tools (49 percent) and lack of training (42 percent) were hindering their automation initiatives.

“Despite tight budgets, lack of training and other impediments, Federal IT pros are continuing to invest in automation technologies because the ROI in terms of time, money and productivity is very tangible when the projects are completed,” said Chris LaPoint, VP Product Management, SolarWinds. “However, given that the majority of IT teams aren’t growing, it’s especially critical that IT management products are easy to evaluate, quick to deploy without expensive consultants, and that they integrate seamlessly so teams don’t have to spend time learning new interfaces every time they add functionality.”
