There is no getting away from it, automation can be complicated.

First, it is working out where to start, and it isn’t as simple as installing an application or signing up to a service and configuring it once.

Automation is a journey not made easier by the drive for AI (check out this webinar on Automation & AI), which will aid productivity but could actually increase manual work performed today by surfacing more insights that need to be manually addressed. AI initiatives should be coupled with automation to ensure ‘self-healing’.

Understanding Requirements and Golden Rules of Automation

Working out where to start is all about understanding your requirements:

  • What are your business objectives?
  • Which manual processes consume resources?
  • What is value of automating those processes?
  • In which order should we automate the use cases?
  • What integrations are required, are they available and included?

We commonly hear an objective to automate x% of manual processes in a year, but which use case to automate is not necessarily understood.

There are three golden rules when evaluating automation use case candidates:

  1. Can you connect electronically to the systems required for the process?
  2. Do you understand the process steps?
  3. Is it worth it, will the process cost more to automate than it saves?

Surely someone has done this before?

The great news is, that there’s no need to reinvent the wheel. To start with automation, you require an straightforward route to map and design your process (that isn’t using code); you need easy-to-use integrations to orchestrate your existing tools and, ideally content containing pre-built runbooks covering the most common use cases.

Above all, you need to be certain of the capabilities included and that the deployed solution covers your use cases.

Following customer feedback, we have changed the packaging of Runbook Studio to include all integrations and the 50 most common automation use cases, providing you with that certainty and simplified automation!

Simplify Automation with Kelverion

There are now two simplified packages for Runbook Studio, that include ALL integrations and over 50 use-case runbooks covering the following solutions:

The two packs are:

  • Runbook Studio Client Pack – 2 PC client licences of the runbook studio, all integrations (choose one or multiple to compliment your IT infrastructure) and 50 use cases for $1,095 / £895 per month
  • Runbook Studio Server Pack – multi-user server licence, all integrations and 50 use cases for $1,995 / £1,595 per month

 Both of the packs contain all of the below:

Runbook Studio

Kelverion’s low-code/no-code, graphical interface that is used to design new runbooks, edit existing runbooks, and customize runbooks.

It doesn’t require the runbook creator to be a PowerShell expert, and its discovery capabilities can determine what fields are required based on what you have configured in any application it interfaces with such as Entra ID, Microsoft 365, or Jira.

Integration Modules

These are the connectors that include the basic commands that integrate to the applications using an API and PowerShell to help you execute the commands without having to be a programmer and know all of the syntax.

Plus Kelverion have built ‘smart’ integration modules which analyse the target system and will reflect all the fields in a click and configure format (even customised set-ups).

Ready to Deploy Solutions

A set of pre-designed runbooks, similar to a template, that will work out of the box doing the standard tasks for their original design purpose, with just some basic setup to connect to any application it interfaces with.  Kelverion provide implementation support as standard, so any purchased solutions can be customized to fit into your desired process.

The solutions included are:

  • Employee onboarding / offboarding
  • Standard IT tasks
  • Microsoft 365 Management
  • Event to Service Desk Incident Ticket Creation
  • Remote Diagnostics and Remediation

Client licence vs Server Licence

The client license is for up to two devices to use Runbook Studio, whereas the server license is multiuser for up to eight devices.


The Runbook Studio now simplifies the process of evaluating and choosing an automation solution while accelerating automation deployment.

Both Runbook Studio Packs are available on the Kelverion website or to deploy on a monthly basis on the Azure Marketplace, directly into your subscription with automated deployment of the required Azure resources.
