Top 30 Workload Automation Case Studies in 2024

Workload automation (WLA) tools are used by 43% of infrastructure and operations leaders to execute infrastructure operations.1 However, business leaders may not know about the full scope of workload automation capabilities.

Case studies demonstrate the range of capabilities of new technologies and we compiled WLA case studies for business leaders to identify their benefits and use cases.

Table 1 is a compilation of WLA case studies. You can filter or sort them by industry (like finance, software, or health care) or business function (like IT or accounting). There are also reported benefits, use cases, and vendors.

Choosing a WLA tool that will suit your business needs is also important, considering the number of vendors in the market. Reading the following article(s) may help you in your search :
