Cloud-based remote monitoring and IT management platform Atera is launching what it says is an IT industry first: an integration with OpenAI, the creator of ChatGPT, that allows users to quickly create scripts.
Using the conversational chatbot to create scripts has been an early and common use case among IT professionals trying out the public preview of ChatGPT, and Atera is now rolling that ability directly into the platform. The integration will be launching in limited beta and focus on script generating capabilities. The company is offering early access to the capability here.
According to the Israel-based Atera, users can simply prompt the request, enter what they want to solve via a script and watch the script write itself. In the beta, IT professionals were able to create and run in seconds as opposed to hours. The goal is essentially to free up time for IT professionals so help them focus on other tasks and reduce the time spent creating scripts to automate functions.
The company says the integration enhances the Atera platform of all-in-one remote monitoring and management, helpdesk and reporting for IT departments by feeding data to OpenAI’s algorithms and helping to improve the platform.
Gil Pekelman, CEO and founder of Atera, calls the integration of OpenAI and Atera a “complete game-changer” for the product and its level of service it can provide to IT professionals.
“At Atera, we see a massive opportunity for this integration to empower IT pros to tap into that dream they had before tickets, alerts and broken printers became their lives,” Pekelman says. “IT departments are typically overworked, dealing with tons of menial tasks. Now, they’ll be able to automate the tedious tasks and optimize various processes via partial automation so they can focus on more strategic, interesting projects close-to-their hearts.”
According to Atera, the company plans to add additional capabilities through OpenAI, including advanced automations and more features to enhance the script generator to help IT professionals solve automation challenges faster.
Atera’s announcement comes shortly after Microsoft said it will invest billions into the OpenAI platform and integrate intelligent capabilities across a wide range of its enterprise and consumer products.
