Gartner research shows traditional workload automation strategies are unable to meet the needs of heterogeneous IT environments that include cloud-native infrastructure and big data workloads. To transform IT operations, Gartner finds I&O leaders must use platforms for service orchestration and automation to drive customer-focused agility as part of their cloud, big data and DevOps initiatives.
Service Orchestration and Automation Platforms (SOAP) do not represent a new market, rather a transformation of a mature market for workload automation tools to meet modern infrastructure, application and data requirements. SOAP represents the evolution of workload automation tools that aim to manage and automate a complete business process.
In this report, I&O leaders and application leaders responsible for DevOps initiatives can learn:
Details about the differentiating capabilities of Service Orchestration and Automation Platforms (event-driven automation, workflow orchestration, self-service automation, and more)
Ways to mature current workload automation tools to meet modern infrastructure requirements
Recommendations for I&O leaders who want to transform IT operations automation
