This blog post aims to summarize the key takeaways from this informative workshop.

At the recent Red Hat User Group workshop on Red Hat Insights, Red Hat Ansible Automation Platform, and their integration with management (ITSM) systems, such as ServiceNow, provided valuable insights into how these technologies work together.

The key takeaway is that the integration with organizations ITSM can demonstrate to auditors the existence of robust controls and provide documented evidence of their implementation.

Red Hat Insights:

The workshop highlighted the capabilities of Red Hat Insights, a powerful proactive operations platform. Insights leverages advanced analytics and machine learning to analyze infrastructure and identify potential issues before they become critical problems.

Insights continuously monitors and assesses system data, Insights empowers IT teams to make informed decisions and take proactive actions to optimize performance, improve security, and ensure system stability.

Red Hat Ansible Automation Platform:

Another significant component of the workshop focused on the Red Hat Ansible Automation Platform. Ansible enables IT teams to automate repetitive tasks, streamline workflows, and improve operational efficiency.

With its agentless architecture and simple automation language, Ansible simplifies the process of configuration management, application deployment, and orchestration across hybrid cloud environments.

Participants gained valuable insights into how Ansible can help reduce manual efforts, increase productivity, and enable IT teams to focus on strategic initiatives.

Integration with ITSM Systems:

A key highlight of the workshop was the discussion around integrating Red Hat technologies with ITSM systems, particularly ServiceNow.

The integration between Red Hat Insights, Ansible Automation Platform, and ServiceNow provides users with a unified solution for incident management, change management, and service request fulfillment.

This integration enables IT teams to leverage the power of automation and data-driven insights to enhance IT service delivery, improve response times, and ensure compliance with ITIL best practices.

Use Cases:

The workshop delved into real-world use cases and best practices, showcasing how organizations have successfully integrated Red Hat Insights, Ansible Automation Platform, and ITSM system.

Participants learned about the benefits of automating incident remediation, automating change requests, and leveraging Insights’ predictive analytics to proactively address infrastructure issues.

These practical examples demonstrated how the combined power of these technologies can improve IT operations and elevate service quality while providing auditors documented evidence of controls implementation.


The workshop emphasized the importance of collaboration between IT operations teams, development teams, and business stakeholders.

The integration of Red Hat technologies with ITSM systems opens exciting possibilities for cross-functional collaboration, fostering an environment of shared responsibility and streamlined processes.

The workshop participants were encouraged to explore further integrations and experiment with new automation use cases in their environments.


The workshop on Red Hat Insights, Red Hat Ansible Automation Platform, and ITSM integration provided participants with a comprehensive understanding of how these technologies can transform IT operations.

From proactively identifying and addressing infrastructure issues to automating routine tasks and integrating with ITSM systems like ServiceNow, the workshop showcased the huge potential for organizations to enhance efficiency, improve service delivery, and drive innovation.

By embracing these technologies and fostering collaboration, organizations can take a significant step towards achieving their operational and service management goals in today’s dynamic IT landscape.
