EMA Radar for Workload Automation (WLA): Q1 2016EMA Radar Report

Hybrid cloud, DevOps, big data and digitalization are driving a need for more sophisticated workload automation, which underpins the consistent delivery of traditional and cutting edge workloads. Modern workloads require more sophistication; data is collected from a greater variety of sources, and the success or failure of job streams can be directly exposed to both business users and customers. Significant enhancements in workload automation (WLA) tools have been added in recent years to address these trends. This Enterprise Management Associates (EMA) RADAR report identifies the thirteen leading WLA platforms and empirically compares and grades them against a broad range of measurements to determine overall product strengths and cost efficiencies.

Evaluated solutions include: Arcana, ASCI, Automic, BMC, CA Technologies, Cisco Systems, Flux, HelpSystems, IBM, MVP Software, SMA Solutions, Stonebranch and Vinzant.
