EMA finds companies require 25-30% less code for digital transformation when they leverage this mind shift

New research uncovers the impact of modern Workload Automation on development speed

Digital Transformation is the term we’ve been using for the last decade to describe how we modernize and automate the enterprise.

New 2023 research from the EMA finds that for the bulk of the market, it’s far more common to be the early stages of digital transformation (40%) or have a digital transformation process underway (37%) with just a few projects. 

However, of the very early adopters, 21% have a modernized, mature process and 4% of the companies in that group are already thinking about the second generation of this wave.

Which made Dan Twing, EMA President & COO ask: what can we learn from their experience?

It turns out modern Workload Automation plays a surprisingly large role in the success of digital transformation. And companies who use their lessons learned can accelerate transformation significantly.

[EMA Report] Digital Transformation has been discussed for a decade. 40% are just beginning and only 21% have mature digital processes

Workload Automation plays a surprisingly large role in Digital Transformation

Workload Automation has been around for forty years. Many companies set and forgot these quiet systems while they diligently ran in the background, keeping all things on time.

And although the solutions may have been forgotten on a metaphorical shelf in the Operations dept. says Twing, the solutions have been modernized each step along the way with best practices that give companies an impressive amount of automation control of which many companies remain unaware.

In fact, the EMA estimates digital transformations can take 25-30% less code when companies leverage the Workload Automation tools they already have in place.


Navigating the Digital Landscape: Workload Automation and Orchestration as Silent Champions

In the dynamic landscape of digital transformation, where change is the only constant, it’s fascinating to observe how workload automation and orchestration emerge as silent champions, steering organizations through the intricacies of innovation. 

Contrary to assumptions that these processes would brush aside decades-old organizational pillars, the reality is quite the opposite. There’s an inherent synergy between the time-tested practices and the modernized tools driving digital evolution.


Empowering DevOps: The Pivotal Role of Workload Automation

Workload Automation, a linchpin in this transformative journey, lends robust support to the very fabric of DevOps processes.

51% of organizations, leaning heavily on Workload Automation, witness a substantial boost in development speed, making it the foremost benefit on their digital transformation roadmap. 

Similarly for Workload Automation, the seamless automation of code migration, environment building, and production deployment underscores the indispensable role of workload automation in facilitating a smooth DevOps integration.

Cloud Configuration Mastery: Adapting Workload Automation to Diverse Landscapes

Another pivotal role that Workload Automation assumes is in the configuration of cloud infrastructures.

As processes migrate to the cloud, these tools play a crucial part in ensuring consistency across development, testing, and production environments. 

Moreover, as organizations grapple with the coexistence of on-premises systems, workload automation steps up to streamline configuration in this traditional setting, demonstrating its versatility across diverse landscapes.

Data Orchestration Excellence: Unveiling the Power of Workload Automation Tools

In the era of data-driven operations, the orchestration capabilities of Workload Automation tools shine brightly.

For 39% of organizations, the orchestration of data movement, coupled with file transfer capabilities, forms a cornerstone in supporting their digital transformation journey.

This underscores the evolving role of Workload Automation beyond mere task automation, towards the orchestration of complex data flows inherent in modern digital processes.

Seamless Connectivity: Orchestration Beyond DevOps

Workload Automation becomes the connective tissue, weaving together disparate capabilities within the digital transformation realm.

A notable 33% of organizations are actively leveraging Workload Automation’s orchestration capabilities to seamlessly connect processes, extending beyond the boundaries of DevOps to embrace release management automation.

This approach not only reduces redundancy but also taps into proven processes that seamlessly integrate with existing operations.

This underscores the evolving role of Workload Automation beyond mere task automation, towards the orchestration of complex data flows inherent in modern digital processes.

Traditional Precision: The Enduring Importance of Workload Automation

For 28% of organizations, the traditional role of Workload Automation retains its significance, ensuring timely execution through event-based or time-based triggers. 

Despite the buzz around cutting-edge orchestration, this underscores the enduring importance of Workload Automation in maintaining operational precision.

Codeless Innovation: Unlocking Efficiencies with End-to-End Orchestration

A striking revelation is the realization by 27% of organizations that Workload Automation, with its end-to-end orchestration capabilities, obviates the need for creating new code. 

Why reinvent the wheel when existing tools can seamlessly orchestrate processes across environments? This not only streamlines operations but also aligns with the ethos of leveraging proven processes rather than building anew.

Efficient Transformation: Enabling Innovation with Reduced Developer Time

The power of Workload Automation extends further, with 15% of organizations recognizing its role in enabling new applications and digital transformation with reduced developer time.

By capitalizing on the orchestration capabilities inherent in Workload Automation, these organizations unlock efficiencies, allowing them to focus on innovation rather than intricate coding.

In Conclusion: Workload Automation as the Linchpin for Digital Transformation

In conclusion, Workload Automation stands as an integrated force in the digital transformation landscape.

From its roots in supporting DevOps processes to its expanding role in orchestrating data flows and connecting diverse capabilities, Workload Automation emerges as a linchpin for organizations navigating the complexities of innovation.

The key takeaway: in the pursuit of digital transformation, leverage the existing, proven capabilities of Workload Automation to propel your organization forward.

It’s not just about automation; it’s about intelligent orchestration that accelerates the true potential of your digital journey.
