IT, confusing to most but it is what makes the world go round. Automation is going to be something that changes the world we live in. Not just for those people who work in the industry but for everyone living across the globe in their daily lives. Time is valuable, some may say more valuable than money, would automation help with the lack of time people have in the 21st century? This project aims to evaluate this idea. How fast can automation complete a task compared to a manual input? It is almost like a challenge to yourself but giving one version of yourself a head start through automation tools. According to this project the world of automation is going to change the world we live in, not just in terms of time but in terms of economics and employability. This project will discuss this in great depth as well as providing key insights into why this is the case within the computer networking industry.

This project allows for engineers to do vast amounts of work in a fraction of the time. In addition to saving businesses 90% of salary costs for the same amount of work.
