One of this summer’s automation projects was developing a bot that performs Configuration Management (CM) for us in Slack! This bot allows anyone at Bluestone to generate an accurate and unique CM number, without bothering our CM professionals, giving them back time to maintain deliverable integrity and source code version control for our entire product portfolio.
The CMbot even reports out the numbers assigned each day, every morning after. This enables our CM pros to actually take a vacation and easily sync back up when they return (hopefully tanned and refreshed.)
What business processes do you wish a bot would do for you (so you could hang out on the beach longer on your holidays)?
