Orchestration refers to software platforms and services that automate and orchestrate key IT and business processes to help streamline and simplify operations management for IT personnel.
By automating the configuration, management and interoperability of disparate computer systems, applications and services, orchestration can free IT from the burden of managing a variety of mission-critical but often complex tasks and processes.
