IBM Acquisition Continues to Bolster Automation Capabilities

IBM continues to add cloud automation resources to its stable of products through acquisition. The computer hardware pioneer that now focuses on software and IT services says the addition of Boston-based application resource management and network performance management software provider Turbonomic continues to round out a full-stack automation offering.

The most recent deal follows the addition of Brazilian RPA provider WDG Automation last summer and Italian process mining provider MyInvenio just last month.

IBM says adding former partner Turbonomic will enable its customers to manage performance and availability of shared applications in a hybrid cloud environment. Companies turning to AI to automate business processes need full visibility into those systems, according to Dinesh Nirmal, general manager of IBM Automation.

“We believe that AI-powered automation has become inevitable, helping to make all information-centric jobs more productive,” says Nirmal. “That’s why IBM continues to invest in providing our customers with a one-stop shop of AI-powered automation capabilities that spans business processes and IT. The addition of Turbonomic now takes our portfolio another major step forward by ensuring customers will have full visibility into what is going on throughout their hybrid cloud infrastructure, and across their entire enterprise.”
