In this report, Gartner examines automation-centric technologies that deliver faster value, improve efficiency, and optimize costs.

ALPHARETTA, GA. – August 19, 2021 – Stonebranch, a leading provider of service orchestration and automation solutions (SOAP), announced that Gartner has recognized the company as a sample vendor in its Hype Cycle for I&O Automation, 2021 report in the service orchestration and automation platforms category.

“We’re proud to be recognized by Gartner in this year’s Hype Cycle report,” said Giuseppe Damiani, CEO of Stonebranch. “This report helps I&O leaders better understand how and when to invest in tech, and in our view, affirms the foundational business value of both the SOAP category and the Stonebranch Universal Automation Center (UAC).”

According to the report, “digital ecosystems expanding beyond the on-premises data center require rethinking of the ways in which business processes are executed.” The report also explains “I&O leaders must use [SOAP] platforms for service orchestration and automation to drive customer focused agility as part of cloud, big data and DevOps initiatives.”

“Automation has come a long way since the days of traditional batch job scheduling. UAC is leading the charge to automate IT processes in real-time, and our customers have gained a whole new level of control and visibility,” said Giuseppe Damiani. “Gaining the ability to orchestrate the automated processes between on-premises and cloud technologies within a hybrid IT environment is a true game-changer for our customers.”
