Autonomic computing is the technology that is building self-managing IT infrastructures i.e. hardware and software that can configure, heal, optimize, and protect itself. By taking care of many of the increasingly complex management requirements of IT systems, autonomic computing allows human and physical resources to concentrate on actual business issues. The term autonomic computing derives from the body's autonomic nervous system, controlling functions like heart rate, breathing rate and oxygen levels without a person's conscious awareness or involvement. The goal is to realize the promise of IT i.e. increasing productivity while minimizing complexity for users.
