To keep up with the growing speed of business demands, there's a pressing need to make programmability and automation an inherent part of operational IT processes. WWT offers four different hands-on Ansible Automation Training sessions where experts demonstrate how to get started using centralized automation tools to manage and deploy configurations. Training involves WWT engineers leading design sessions to help you map out potential automatable workflows and form roadmaps for accelerating the application and adoption of automation.
