That is, some administration tasks are difficult to define so automating them is correspondingly difficult. Further, it may also be difficult to inject such automation code into some legacy systems where the source code is obscure or non-existent. As we will see later on, different levels of autonomy can thus be targeted. The expected benefits of autonomic computing are numerous and obviously include the decrease of maintenance expenditure and risk. The goal is to obtain systems that are able to configure themselves automatically, and with a tendency towards zero configuration for the administrator, hence reducing costs.

According to the report in [13], ‘While real output in the information sector is growing faster than the overall economy, employment in the sector is growing more slowly than the overall economy’. This may be due to an increased productivity, which tends to accelerate output while slowing down employment. Hence, with respect to system administration, it may be that increasingly automated management tools are already being introduced, subsequently limiting the demand for human employees to intervene.

It can be, for example, a server, a sensor, an app store, a component repository, a network, a legacy application holding important business knowledge, a cloud infrastructure offering on-demand computing power and so on. g. through negotiation). Nevertheless, the activity of an autonomic management process affects the administered system and this in turn can have an impact on other external systems without accessing them directly. In cases where an autonomic system consists of several autonomic elements, the state of a certain autonomic element can be considered as part of the internal state with respect to the global system and at the same time as part of the context with respect to another autonomic element in the same system.
