Key benefits across IBM Cloud Paks for Automation

Intelligence: Not just if/then rules

Apply built-in explainable AI to look across your events and data to discover patterns. It can accomplish things at a scale that people can’t reasonably achieve alone and supports your team as if it’s a colleague.

Automate IT and business

Use the same architecture for IT and business events — because they’re increasingly the same thing. Combine IT’s ability to process higher volumes in near real time with the nuances of business.

One system, not one per team

Get all the essential intelligent automation capabilities in one solution so you can reuse investments across teams without time-consuming integrations.

Pre-integrated and preconfigured

Starting with open-source foundations, IBM Cloud Paks are packaged to work together, supported by common interfaces and management tools.

Certified containers ease maintenance
