Ayehu is expanding its footprint in automation in the applications space. Info-Tech expects that automation vendors will compete based on their application automation capabilities.
Ayehu NG is an automation tool that allows administrators to build event-driven or scheduled workflows with prebuilt activities, integrated with other platforms using APIs.
Traditionally, a lot of value in IT automation has been realized on the infrastructure side, and Ayehu offers many capabilities in this area, including use cases such as event filtering and automated resolution of incidents. Ayehu has also been working to bridge the gap between IT operations and security operations.
As part of its partnership with Finland-headquartered IT service provider TietoEVRY, Ayehu is working to expand its automation on the applications side of IT.
For TietoEVRY, application automation is a key capability of Ayehu’s solution that provides the opportunity to give more value to TietoEVRY’s customers.
The applications side of things is a natural next step for IT automation solutions and fits into Ayehu’s vision of “the self-driving enterprise,” in which IT teams are able to focus more on engineering and project work while automating the manual repetitive work involved in IT operations.
Ayehu’s partnership with TietoEVRY aligns with this strategy of expanding application automation capabilities.
Info-Tech expects that other IT automation vendors will take part in an arms race to support greater automation for applications.
With every additional system an automation platform like Ayehu can integrate with, the pool of use cases increases dramatically, making the automation platform much more valuable.
Many enterprises have a smorgasbord of technology, making integrations and automation difficult to maintain. The holy grail for the enterprise is to have one unified platform for enterprise-wide automation, providing IT with a single pane of glass and simplifying administration and maintenance.
In expanding its capabilities for automation on the applications side, Ayehu aims to be this holy grail. Any automation vendor who doesn’t want to be left behind will also focus on expanding its capabilities in the applications space.
