Anyone who has ever set up a home office can understand the importance of having an organized workspace designed to accommodate technology. Computer wires, printer cords, monitors, laptops, headphones, chargers and more have to be situated in a way that makes sense for your space and allows you to access and use everything you need to effectively and with ease. With the workspace and technology organized, you can properly design your workflows however you need to.
Business technology stacks must also be organized and properly configured for how they’re designed to work. There are a multitude of technologies working in your business right now. Organizing all those efforts in a cohesive strategy is the key to success. We call this orchestration.
What is service orchestration?
For our purposes, service orchestration refers to the coordination of process automation, or business process automation (BPA), human workers, and the systems they use. From legacy systems to the automation platforms and cloud technology, most modern businesses have several layers of their tech stack to coordinate.
What is hyper orchestration?
In addition to BPA, people and systems, hyper orchestration incorporates Robotic Process Automation (RPA). So now, we are talking about the coordination of process automation that includes both BPA and RPA as well as people and systems.
Why is service orchestration important?
To make the most of the varied aspects of your tech stack, coordination becomes key. Not only will orchestration help you run a more effective tech stack, but zooming out to a bird’s eye-view gives you a better opportunity to create thoughtfully designed systems and structures. In this way, infrastructure becomes a driver of not just business outcomes but also scalability and growth.
Hyper orchestration features an integration-first approach, considering how to most effectively integrate technologies and processes in a way that best supports the company as a whole.
