Ansible Tower is the web-based interface that is used for managing Ansible. It is an easy-to-use interface for managing quick deployments and monitoring of the configurations. AWX is the name of the upstream project for Red Hat Ansible Tower, like Fedora and CentOS Stream is for RHEL.
Red Hat has bundled Ansible and Ansible Tower in a bundle called Red Hat Ansible Automation Platform. It includes all the tools needed to implement enterprise-wide automation like Red Hat Ansible Tower, tools for Microsoft Windows, network, security and more. Ansible is the daily go-to-tool for automation for almost all our DevOps consultants, they have been using Ansible and Ansible Tower/AWX in many different customer projects.

Ansible has also been extremely useful for clearing away old bits of code and closing lots of security holes. For example: When the sudo bug came out, it was fixed on over 200 servers within an hour from when I started writing the playbook until sudo was patched on everything.
