Much of the AI and automation discussion these days is ominous rather than inspiring — as we explored in last month’s poll question (see the results here).
This month we want to stay with the automation theme, but look at things in a more positive light. We would like to know: What parts of your jobs are automated, and what would you like to automate?
For example, you may be glad — or actually, you may be UTTERLY THRILLED BEYOND WORDS — to use various tools in your environment along with scripting software like PowerShell to automate tasks such as (but not limited to):
- Password resets
- User lifecycle tasks (creation, updates, deprovisioning)
- Group management
- AD cleanup
- Data deletion (e.g., TRIM verification)
- Client deployments
- License assignments/revoking
- New device testing
Also, please tell us about the repetitive tasks in your environment that you would like to automate, which would give you more time and energy to focus on higher-value priorities. Your “automation wish list” could include tasks that you plan on automating soon, as well as those that you hope to automate one day in the future.
