IT process automation (ITPA) enables the creation of simple and scalable workflows to get specific tasks done across multiple systems.
It is workflow automation that is oriented toward tactical objectives (such as “list installed software” or “execute this script”) as opposed to strategic objectives (“keep systems updated” or “enforce security policies”).
Run existing scripts at scale across your entire enterprise with Puppet Bolt, an open source agentless automation tool. Execute any command, script or plan in any language the target systems can understand. Puppet Bolt supports recycling existing code including YAML, PowerShell, Bash, Python or Ruby, and can even reuse content from the Puppet Forge.
Extend the functionality of the modules you know and love. Many modules from the Puppet Forge include tasks that can be run from within either Puppet Enterprise or on the command line with Bolt. These tasks enhance the power of the community-based content for which the Puppet Forge is well-known.
