Gartner: Critical Capabilities for Application Release Orchestration

As the DevOps tools market continues to expand, automating isolated processes is not enough. Enterprise organizations are looking to Application Release Orchestration (ARO) to scale software delivery across disparate teams, technologies, pipelines and toolchains. ARO allows IT teams to integrate, orchestrate, automate, and get visibility into the entire application development process from end to end to drive development of higher-quality applications faster than ever before.

In this 2019 Critical Capabilities report, Gartner evaluates the deployment automation, pipeline and environment management, and release orchestration capabilities of different ARO solutions with respect to release managers, application/product owners, and DevOps/application operations team members.
