Accelerate Automation. Reduce Risk.

Automation is a leading driver for digital transformation, and Ansible has become a go-to standard. The faster you adopt automation, the more significant difference you can make in your organization.

But there are numerous barriers to rapid Ansible adoption, including time, skill gaps, and Ansible experience. One way to speed this process is by engaging with a consulting firm, but that requires pre-determined projects and lengthy scoping. You can also add new team members, but highly skilled Ansible resources are expensive and hard to find.

Ansible Counselor is here to help. Whether you need some questions answered, or a custom Playbook to solve an automation challenge, we’ve got your back. Our Ansible experts speed your team’s Ansible adoption, help you conform to best practices, reduce risk, and help take the guess-work out of automation.

Jumpstart your automation

Often, just knowing the best place to start solves the biggest problem. Even in cases where your team is already automating, we can be of assistance. With routine team meetings, we can help prioritize automation projects, and offer pointers to reliable Ansible content that will solve your need.

Chances are you have more to do than automate. For point needs, we’re here to help. For instance, do you need to automate local account management across an estate of systems? We’ve got an automation for that, and we’ll even support it as part of your Ansible Counselor subscription.
