Automic, from Broadcom, has once again been recognized as a “Value Leader” in the Workload Automation category within the IT Operations sector. This recognition comes from the latest report by the analyst firm Enterprise Management Associates (EMA), known as RADAR. It’s worth noting that Tricise is the main distributor of Broadcom for all Software solutions, including Automic.
As Dan Twing analyzes in the introduction of the Enterprise Management Associates (EMA) report, “the main driver of change within Workload Automation has been Digital Transformation, a necessary bet for companies that want to survive and grow in today’s competitive market.” This was one of the main motivations for the development of Automic because automation is a key ingredient for Broadcom’s Digital BizOps platform, a program that combines AIOps, DevOps, Value Ops, and the Automation Center of Excellence into a unified platform to merge business and IT, all aligned to create significant business outcomes.
As Twing continues to analyze in his report, “the Workload Automation market, although 40 years old, behaves like a much younger market. Constantly innovating and expanding its scope where it can impact the business, this has created additional terminology used to describe solutions, such as Workflow Automation, Workload Orchestration, and many others. This is an indication that this market remains very active, and continuous advancements impacting businesses positively are necessary.”
As shown in the report, “the consumption of automation is shifting towards a SaaS environment, the adoption of this delivery model is growing and has proven to be necessary for the market. At the same time, coordinating workloads across mainframe, distributed, and cloud holistically is crucial for the future.”
Broadcom and its commitment to Automic Since the previous EMA RADAR report, Broadcom has introduced two new versions of Automic Workload Automation, with the latest one already including the Automation Center of Excellence to drive systematic automation across the business: a new approach to the digital transformation of companies, known as Digital Business Automation, and an expansion of automation into AIOps (artificial intelligence operations), providing an integrated and seamless experience to address emerging or anticipated issues. Automic, Broadcom’s product name, not only handles workload automation but also includes an intelligent pipeline that drives continuous delivery through Automic.
Broadcom’s philosophy is to support each customer in solving current issues in IT operations and development, “using an open approach to automation and AI that works collaboratively with both third-party technologies and our own.” With automation.ai, Broadcom has an ambitious roadmap for automation, demonstrating its ongoing commitment to driving the use and benefits of automation throughout the enterprise.
