The system can be hard to understand at times, but that's true for any new technology. Agentless means the servers don't have to be touched to run your books. YAML also allows the programs to be understood much quicker than someone trying to learn Ruby for the first time, like on Chef.

Ansible is very easy to integrate. If you have already spun up servers, installing Ansible on each of them could be time-consuming. But if you spun up the server with the golden template, that can be easily solved. Once Ansible is installed on each server, it is not hard to configure at all.

It's pretty easy. Just write your YAML files and tell the system what you want it to do. It is straight forward and doesn't take a whole lot of time to pick up and master. It is an easy system to get up and running. The security is a headache when it comes to integration.
