COMPLEXITY KILLS PRODUCTIVITY
Every business is a digital business. Technology is your innovation engine, and delivering your applications faster helps you win. Historically, that required a lot of manual effort and complicated coordination. But today, there is Ansible - the simple, yet powerful IT automation engine that thousands of companies are using to drive complexity out of their environments and accelerate DevOps initiatives.
ANSIBLE LOVES THE REPETITIVE WORK YOUR PEOPLE HATE
No one likes repetitive tasks. With Ansible, IT admins can begin automating away the drudgery from their daily tasks. Automation frees admins up to focus on efforts that help deliver more value to the business by speeding time to application delivery, and building on a culture of success. Ultimately, Ansible gives teams the one thing they can never get enough of: time. Allowing smart people to focus on smart things.
Ansible is a simple automation language that can perfectly describe an IT application infrastructure. It's easy-to-learn, self-documenting, and doesn't require a grad-level computer science degree to read. Automation shouldn't be more complex than the tasks it's replacing.
Ansible is the most popular open source automation tool on GitHub today with more than a quarter million downloads per month. With over 2,400 contributors submitting new modules all the time, rest assured that what you are automating is covered in Ansible already, or will be very soon.
EXTEND THE POWER OF ANSIBLE WITH ANSIBLE TOWER
Ansible Tower is an enterprise framework for controlling, securing and managing your Ansible automation with a UI and RESTful API.
Tower builds on the underlying Ansible automation engine by adding control, access, security, auditing, and delegation capabilities required in the enterprise.
COMMUNICATION IS THE KEY TO DEVOPS
Unless automation is designed for teams, it's just another tool. For it to serve people, automation needs to be smarter and simpler. Simplicity grows more important the more people it impacts. That's why Ansible is automation designed with everyone in mind.

Ansible seamlessly unites workflow orchestration with configuration management, provisioning, and application deployment in one easy-to-use and deploy platform.
Regardless of where you start with Ansible, you’ll find our simple, powerful and agentless automation platform has the capabilities to solve your most challenging problems.
Your apps have to live somewhere. If you're PXE booting and kickstarting bare-metal servers or VMs, or creating virtual or cloud instances from templates, Ansible and Ansible Tower help streamline the process.
Centralizing configuration file management and deployment is a common use case for Ansible, and it’s how many power users are first introduced to the Ansible automation platform.
When you define your application with Ansible, and manage the deployment with Tower, teams are able to effectively manage the entire application lifecycle from development to production.
Creating a CI/CD pipeline requires buy-in from numerous teams. You can't do it without a simple automation platform that everyone in your organization can use. Ansible Playbooks keep your applications properly deployed (and managed) throughout their entire lifecycle.
When you define your security policy in Ansible, scanning and remediation of site-wide security policy can be integrated into other automated processes and instead of being an afterthought, it’ll be integral in everything that is deployed.
Configurations alone don't define your environment. You need to define how multiple configurations interact and ensure the disparate pieces can be managed as a whole. Out of complexity and chaos, Ansible brings order.
