Orchestration takes automation a step further by enabling the coordination and management of complex tasks that span multiple systems, both on-premises and in the cloud. It facilitates the alignment of diverse technologies, making them work harmoniously together. This level of coordination empowers IT teams to create agile, responsive, and scalable solutions, contributing to overall efficiency gains.
