WINNER OF IT AUTOMATION: Puppet Enterprise 2017.2

Puppet’s software brings IT infrastructure automation to the enterprise by using a common language for defining applications and infrastructure — leading to a standard way to manage all infrastructure such as private and public cloud, containers, storage and networking. Key capabilities include automatic delivery, updating, monitoring and security of applications. With Puppet Enterprise 2017.2, new features include package inspection, which gets users up and running with automation more quickly, by uncovering packages that ought to be managed automatically. Another new capability, visual orchestration workflows, let users orchestrate deployments of infrastructure and applications from inside Puppet Enterprise’s web user interface.
