Expedia Group’s business is built on innovation and speed of deployment. Their existing Workload Automation system was built upon an outdated platform with an outdated licensing scheme, and a cumbersome thick client, which was problematic for developers and end users to self-serve and deliver business value.

Therefore, Expedia Group initiated a search for a modern, scalable and secure automation solution to relieve themselves from this burdensome situation. Expedia Group found what they were looking for at Stonebranch, that stood out against other workload automation vendors with its Universal Automation Center during the evaluation phase, particularly with regards to user-friendliness and selfservice capabilities.
