Official BMC Helix logo as part of CIO.comBrian was recently featured in a crowd-sourced article on BMC Felix about “A Single Point of Control: How IT Leaders are Advocating for Automation Platforms“.

“Accelerated detection and remediation are the results of incorporating emerging technologies into the automated platform”, says Brian Thomas (@DivergentCIO), CTO of Coruzant Technologies.

“Cybersecurity products have been and are increasingly incorporating more AI technology into their platforms and appliances, due to the sheer number of daily attacks on company networks,” he says. “Utilizing AI technology, these tools not only can learn over time, but they have the ability to immediately detect, alert, and disable threats on the spot — even if it is something that it is not familiar with or has ever seen.”

Automation platforms

Automation platforms are rapidly gaining popularity among CIOs, who are advocating for their implementation in the workplace. These platforms offer a range of benefits, including improved efficiency, increased productivity, and reduced costs. As such, it is no surprise that CIOs are increasingly pushing for their adoption.

One of the key advantages of automation platforms is their ability to streamline processes and eliminate repetitive manual tasks. By automating routine and time-consuming tasks, companies can free up valuable time and resources for more strategic initiatives. Additionally, automation platforms are designed to minimize the risk of human error, leading to increased accuracy and reliability in operations.

Another major benefit of automation platforms is their ability to increase productivity and efficiency. Automated processes are typically faster and more accurate than manual ones, reducing the amount of time spent on routine tasks and freeing up staff to focus on more valuable activities. In addition, automation systems can integrate with existing systems and applications, providing a seamless and efficient work environment.

Additionally, CIOs are advocating for these platforms due to the cost savings they can deliver. Automation eliminates the need for manual labor, reducing labor costs and freeing up resources for other initiatives. Furthermore, automation platforms can reduce the risk of errors and improve overall efficiency, reducing the need for rework and additional expenses.


CIOs are increasingly advocating for the implementation of automation platforms in the workplace. These platforms offer a range of benefits, including improved efficiency, increased productivity, and reduced costs, making them an attractive option for organizations looking to improve their operations. As automation continues to gain popularity, CIOs will play a critical role in promoting its adoption and helping organizations to realize its full potential.
