We are excited to announce that HCL Software has been listed as Representative Vendor for the second year in a row in 2021 Gartner Market Guide for Service Orchestration and Automation Platforms report.

HCL Workload Automation (HWA) indeed seamlessly orchestrates complex workflows across multiple platforms and applications. HWA boosts customer’s business with the most advanced jobs scheduling, management, and monitoring capabilities for continuous automation and orchestration.

As stated in the latest Gartner report, “automation strategies to cope with event-driven business models and cloud infrastructures continue to evolve”.

The path of HCL Workload Automation so far indeed moved towards offering a complete orchestration platform to tackle these challenges as well as to fulfill its “Automate Anything, Run Anywhere” vision.


While batch scheduling is a consolidated practice, modern automation needs to answer real-time questions. HCL Workload Automation provides both batch scheduling and event-driven orchestration capabilities

Customers can rely on us for rock-solid workload automation, but using our platform just for scheduling would be missing its full value.

When buying HCL Workload Automation customers indeed have a powerful, extensible platform at their fingertips to extend the outreach of their automation needs.

Thanks to 80+ plugins available on the Automation Hub, HCl Workload Automation users can orchestrate IT and business processes in different domains: from cloud orchestration to RPA, from ERP processes to DevOps ones.

As recommended by Gartner, “Infrastructure and operations leaders must use platforms for service orchestration and automation to deliver customer-focused agility as part of their cloud, big data, and DevOps initiatives.”

In our experience, we saw this being key when it comes about providing a single point of access and control to our customers, allowing them to easily model their workflow, improve service level agreements and build end-to-end processes, while interconnecting heterogeneous flows and avoiding islands of automation.

Also, part of our vision was to create a platform that can be deployed anywhere: from mainframe and legacy systems to Cloud and Kubernetes

HCL Software’s cloud-first architecture and deployment makes our customers’ cloud journey easy. Our cloud-native strategy combines a technical platform rooted in the most widely adopted cloud-native technologies, with the choice and flexibility that allow each of our customers to adopt cloud-native in a way that best meets their own specific business objectives.

Try it by yourself: you can deploy HCL Workload Automation to Kubernetes in few minutes using HCL SoFy, our solution factory. And of you want to see it in action, get a taste of it with our demo.

Plus, in July 2021 we launched our cloud-native-as-a-service offering: HCL Workload Automation on Now, giving our customers the chance to unlock the full potential of HCL Workload Automation on a cloud-native platform of their choice.
