The Shifting Role of Workload Automation

WLA Expansion Creates a Foundation for Broader Business Process Automation and Digital Transformation

WEBINAR DATE/TIME: Tuesday, September 25 at 10 a.m. Pacific | 1 p.m. Eastern

The role of WLA is expanding as organizations increase use of all forms of automation to become more efficient and competitive. Digital transformation, DevOps, and microservices architectures are increasing the pressure on workload automation systems. Building on previouse research from leading IT analyst firm Enterprise Management Associates (EMA), the 2018 study revisits many important questions to monitor trends while exploring this expanding role and the convergence of workload automation with other automation disciplines.

A big part of the market migrated to new WLA tools over the past five years as the demands on workload automation began to change. In 2013, 32% of the market was considering a change in software. By 2016, that number grew to 52%. Many have migrated to new tools to get better control of costs, improved scalability and performance, and for more integration into big data tools. The 2018 research explores the motivations for migrating, the effort and challenges involved, and the resulting benefits in depth.

Join Dan Twing, President and COO of EMA, for a webinar presentation that explores the results of this research, including:

  • Key pain points related to workload automation and areas of increased satisfaction
  • Impact on WLA of top IT trends, including big data, analytics, and digital transformation
  • Business unit and developer interaction with WLA software
  • Trends in WLA from 2013 to 2018, including a look at new WLA users and those making the move to new software
