Announcing New Market Insights on Workload Automation Industry
September 12, 2019 10:00 am
To better understand the rapidly growing and evolving workload automation market, we commissioned a survey of top U.S. based IT and business WLA users. The study, which was conducted by leading industry analyst firm Enterprise Management Associates (EMA), finds that the role of WLA is quickly expanding as organizations increase use of all forms of automation to become more efficient and competitive. We’re excited to announce the release of this research in a detailed report, available here for download.
The EMA Report on workload automation evaluated current software solutions within the broader WLA industry. EMA’s in-depth survey includes representation from a variety of industries, including software, managed service providers, manufacturing, finance/banking/insurance, retail, education, healthcare, government, and more. There are currently over 20 WLA products on the market, and respondents to this study represent users of nearly every product. To qualify for the survey, respondents had to work in organizations with at least 500 employees and be familiar with any WLA software used in their organization.
Over the past six years, EMA has been tracking the trend of enterprise companies who are switching to new WLA solutions. EMA’s newest research reveals that 60% of organizations have multiple WLA products, and that 88% are planning to consolidate to a single product. Many of these organizations have accumulated several WLA tools over the years, often as a result of acquisitions or different divisions making their own product selections without an overall effort to standardize. In their research, EMA also found that 88% of respondents are using some form of analytics with WLA, and 32% percent are using integrated WLA-specific analytics like those from our company.
