VMware vRealize Automation (vRA) ROI

Sr Virtualization Engineer at a healthcare company with 1,001-5,000 employees
We have seen quite a bit of return on our investment. We've actually been able to really change the way that we're doing build and deployments of virtual machines. We've reorganized around that capability. At one time we had a dedicated build team, separate from Windows and LS teams. Now, we've integrated them together because those teams are actually spinning up and building their own VMs right out of Automation. View full review »
James Jones
IT Manager at a individual & family service with 10,001+ employees
I can't provide numbers off the top of my head but going from three or four days to seven minutes to create a VM - and that seven minutes can go up to 50 servers wide - means it has worked beautifully. View full review »
David Gangwish
Systems Engineer at a insurance company with 1,001-5,000 employees
We have seen value from it. We've seen that typically, the people who are provisioning VDIs and server VMs can now utilize most of their time towards other projects and moving the environment forward, instead of just hammering out virtual machines all day. View full review »

Alain Dalis
Technical Manager at a pharma/biotech company with 5,001-10,000 employees
The ROI that we see is that people don't have to work too hard to have something done and therefore they have more time to market. They save time, which is money. We are an American company so if you save time, any implementation that we do is the implementation of a tool that can submit new work to FDA. One day is like one million. I also have a lot fewer people asking me questions or for help. I don't need to be as involved in the discovery phase. People can now do their own job with something free and automated. They are happy. View full review »

Brian Wurtzel
Systems Administrator at a manufacturing company with 1,001-5,000 employees
Since it's fairly new, we don't know the ROI yet. As far as value is concerned, it has been essential to our environment. We have been able to deploy VMs quickly and the developers have their own sandbox, so they can spin up and destroy VMs at their own will. View full review »

Technical Manager at Gilead Sciences, Inc.
In a year, I used to spend, say, $10 per user. Now it's $5 per user. That is our approximate return on investment, View full review »
Brian Wurtzel
Systems Administrator at a manufacturing company with 1,001-5,000 employees
I've seen ROI on my end because I've been able to deploy some VMs quicker which has left time for me to go into vRA and configure it a little better. We have not pushed it out to our developers yet, but that's coming soon. View full review »
Principal Engineer at T-Mobile
We have already seen the return on it. We've been able to cut down the cost, the time dealing with the back and forth between customers. We can say, “I've got your server, now you can do this,” or, “Here's your server, it's already been provisioned and ready to go for your app." View full review »
System Engineer at a retailer with 10,001+ employees
We still haven't gotten it into production yet. But once we do, our value is going to be the ability to turn around virtual machines a lot faster. View full review »
Senior Systems Admin at a retailer with 1,001-5,000 employees
We see our ROI is in terms of the reduced workload, because we can see a lot of things on one place and don't have to spend a lot of time going out looking for them, and in the simplification of deployment. Again, we can go to one place, do what we need to do, go off and work on other projects and come back and it's taken care of it itself. View full review »

Time savings are our ROI, the time to deploy machines. I haven't done any studies on the exact ROI, but saving time is always good. View full review »

Virtualization Engineer at a financial services firm with 1,001-5,000 employees
As far as ROI goes, we see it in the human time element in deploying, that's been a really big improvement. Cost savings go with that inherently. View full review »
IT Manager at a healthcare company with 10,001+ employees
We have seen significant ROI. We used to have physical servers, it took 90 days to get a server, order it, buy it, and get it in. We have it down to 10 minutes, building a server with virtualization, and now that's too slow. So, we let the customer do it at their speed. Therefore, it is pretty much up in a couple of minutes and they have a server. View full review »

Systems Engineer with 10,001+ employees
I don't think there was an ROI attached to the project. We just needed to automate some of these provisioning processes. View full review »

Our time to deliver a fully unified, three-tier app, at the right version, is one-twentieth what it was before. There is no manual intervention. No IP management. It just dramatically simplifies all of our processes. View full review »
