Ongoing maintenance and upgrades are a lot easier because fewer components need to be worked on i.e., one database, no thick client to install and maintain.

Stonebranch’s automation solution has many benefits, but the most important factor in our decision to switch was how dramatically it lowered our support costs. The user base can now manage their requests independently and this allows our engineers to focus on improvements to our core product and the development of net new features and applications. Stonebranch frees up our skills and time.

Expedia Group Using Automation to Drive Digital Business

Expedia Groups existing workload automation system was built upon an outdated platform with an outdated licensing scheme, and a cumbersome thick client, which was problematic for developers and end users to self-serve and deliver business value. In order to remain a leader in the competitive travel technology industry, Expedia Group needed a modern, scalable and secure automation solution.

Stonebranch was selected over other IT Automation vendors for a variety of reasons, but first and foremost is Universal Automation Center’s ease of use and self-service capabilities. Stonebranch’s cutting-edge technology combined with best-in-class services provides the fastest and most dynamic way to automate business processes and transform to the next generation dynamic data center.

No thick client was required and the API was extremely robust, enabling Expedia Group to expedite many of their automation and maintenance scenarios. Furthermore, upgrading the solution was seamless and simple.
