Gartner Critical Capabilities for Application Release Orchestration (ARO) Report 2019

The proliferation of DevOps tools in today’s modern IT market has accelerated the overall adoption of DevOps in a dramatic way. But too often these tools quickly become siloed or daisy-chained and trying to automate each of them separately creates more challenges than solutions. Application release orchestration (ARO) is the secret weapon to help organizations align disconnected teams, tools and processes. ARO empowers IT teams to confidently release new applications and adapt to change at any speed demanded by the business, with the analytics and insight to measure, track and improve their results.

In Gartner’s 2019 Critical Capabilities report, the focus is on the pipeline and environment management, deployment automation and release orchestration capabilities of various ARO solutions and tools. Gartner also evaluates how well these solutions meet the needs of release managers, application/product owners and DevOps/application operations team members.
