As new, modern workload automation features are required for DevOps, the vendor and client partnership becomes more important as each vendor's decisions on IT strategy, road maps, and vision impact the overall success or failure of DevOps. In addition, CIOs must show value from their investments in digital transformation. While DevOps, release automation, and continuous delivery are addressing the areas of time to market and product innovation, IT process automation addresses the reliability and stability needs of a digital strategy.

In this IDC workbook you will learn how IT Process Automation enables DevOps Automation. Discover how a digital strategy roadmap provides reliable, global, and reusable automation services on the IT infrastructure and process level that enable the transformation to DevOps practices, which increases collaboration across traditionally disparate development, IT operations, and infrastructure teams.
