Puppet is meant for all the people who like to automate infrastructure tasks(devops) or orchestration tasks(sysops). The puppet is a configuration management tool used by system administrators and devops engineers to build and configure IT infrastructure.

Luke Kanies is a system admin who thought scripting is limiting factor to automate system admin tasks and developed puppet as an open source project.A scripting language can be used to automate simple to medium tasks but if you want to build complete infrastructure we have to take help from configuration management tools which can talk to different parts of an infrastructure.
