Gartner’s Key Findings

  • "Traditional workload automation strategies are unable to meet the needs of heterogeneous IT environments that include cloud-native infrastructure and big data workloads.
  • Digital business requires multiple teams, both within and outside of IT, to take advantage of real-time, event-driven orchestration of business services.
  • Improved efficiency remains the key driver for investments in I&O automation."

Modern workload automation platforms (WLA) are evolving to meet the needs of:

  • Cloud and containerization in hybrid infrastructure
  • DevOps toolkits & CI/CD integration
  • Big data
  • RPA integration
