Businesses increasingly use IT automation tools to meet the challenge of managing their data centers. This document describes two types of IT automation software: enterprise job scheduling and run book automation (RBA).   It explains: -       How each solution helps to improve efficiency and reduce risks -       When to use each solution and when to combine them   It includes example scenarios where a choice can be made between the two, as well as more complex scenarios where a combination is optimal.   Whether an enterprise needs to automate workflows within a highly complex and distributed application environment or requires automated incident management, infrastructure maintenance, and deployment provisioning, having the right automation software in place is critical to success.
