Stonebranch Named a Representative Vendor in the 2023 Gartner® Market Guide for Service Orchestration and Automation Platforms (SOAPs)

Stonebranch was recognized by Gartner for the third time in a row for its Universal Automation Center (UAC).

ALPHARETTA, GA. – January 31, 2023 – Stonebranch, a leading provider of service orchestration and automation solutions, announced today that it has been named a Representative Vendor in the 2023 Gartner Market Guide for Service Orchestration and Automation Platforms (SOAP).*

“Our recognition by Gartner in all three years of the SOAP Market Guide is truly an honor,” said Guiseppe Damiani, CEO at Stonebranch. “ I’m proud to say that our end-users and partners have worked side by side with Stonebranch to drive true innovation. They haven’t just adopted the cloud. They have fine-tuned their operations with a fully orchestrated mix of on-premises and cloud environments. Not only are they automating in real-time, but they’ve developed new methods to automate IT Ops, DataOps, DevOps, CloudOps, and business processes.”

The SOAP category, which was born in 2020 as an evolution from traditional on-premises workload automation, represents the market’s shift toward hybrid IT environments. According to the Gartner report, “Existing workload automation strategies are unable to cope with the expansion in complexity of workload types, volumes, and locations driven by evolving business demands.” Gartner predicts that “By year-end 2025, 80% of organizations currently delivering workload automation will be using SOAPs to orchestrate workloads across IT and business domains.”

The Stonebranch Universal Automation Center (UAC) is a modern, real-time IT automation and orchestration platform. By centrally automating tasks, managing workflows, and orchestrating IT processes across different platforms and business applications, UAC helps organizations achieve better business outcomes. Cloud migrations, self-service infrastructure provisioning, jobs-as-code for DevOps, data pipeline management, and more, are all possible with UAC's future-proof approach.
