Global Orchestration Tools Market - Insights
Cloud technology enables number of operations to be carried out remotely, which is also being termed as edge computing. In a typical cloud environment, there exists the need to manage and prioritize various tasks being hosted in the cloud environment. To efficiently carry out these operations, cloud orchestration tools are incorporated. Orchestration helps to automate the workflow of the cloud environment for a more predictable, simplified and always-on operation, which results in reduced risk, cost, and testing time. It enables complete disaster recovery life cycle management for complex, hybrid infrastructure including conventional IT and private and public clouds.
In order to ensure optimum utilization of the cloud infrastructure at disposal, it is necessary to prioritize the workflow and processes in accordance with the best suited business practices. Hence, an intelligent orchestration is necessary to ensure management of cross domain processes and handle multiple exceptions as and when needed as per demand of the instance. Orchestration tools help in efficiently building these stacks of tasks and operations to be performed within the cloud environment.

Increasing need to efficiently utilize cloud infrastructure by intelligently prioritizing operations is expected to be major factor for growth of the market
According to a survey conducted by Intel Security, in 2017 the adoption of cloud services grew three times to what it was in 2016. Increasing demand for proper and complete utilization of cloud infrastructure is leading to high demand for cloud orchestration in multiple IT organizations and DevOps adopters. It acts as a means to speed up delivery of services at a reduced cost. Also, growing adoption of orchestration tools can also be partially attributed to the fact that it helps to automate management, coordination, and organization of complicated computer systems, services, and middleware. In addition to this, reduced personnel involvement, orchestration eliminates the potential for errors introduced into provisioning, scaling or other cloud processes. Therefore, demand for orchestration is increasing significantly, to reduce human errors. Orchestration tools support delivery of cloud resources to customers and end users, including self-service model where users’ request resources without involvement of technical experts. This makes it easy to use, which is another factor for growth of the market.
Moreover, orchestration tools help IT organizations standardize templates and enforce security practices. It also acts as a defense mechanism against VM sprawl providing visibility into, and control over, cloud resources and, implicitly, costs. Orchestration tools oversees interactions of many disparate elements of the application stack, and it can simplify the communication and connections from one workload to other apps and users, as well as ensure links are correctly configured and maintained. This aids the organizations significantly and is a major factor for increasing adoption of orchestration tools.
Lack of technical expertise among SMEs is expected to impede growth of the market
Cloud services are being availed by industries of multiple sizes, owing to its versatile benefits. However, a vast number of small industries are found to be underutilizing its capabilities and are failing to make use of orchestration tools. By leveraging on the orchestration tools, organizations can obtain enhanced operational efficiency and reduced time for management of the workflows and processes from multiple domains. Therefore, this is a major factor adversely affecting growth of the market over the forecast period.
Some of the key players operating in the global Orchestration Tools market include IBM Corporation, Hewlett Packard Enterprise Company, Oracle Corporation, Cisco Systems, Inc., Amazon Web Services, VMware, Inc., Computer Sciences Corporation, Red Hat, Inc., Servicenow, Inc., and BMC Software.
The adoption of orchestration tools has increased, owing to increasing need to maintain workflow and resource allocation and ensure seamless execution of the processes stacked in the cloud infrastructure. The growth of the market is driven by multiple factors such as increasing adoption of cloud technology by various industry verticals, in order to ensure safety of the data and its accessibility irrespective of geographic location.
Companies are increasing focusing on revenue and sales growth, and focus on cost cutting to increase their profit margins. For this purpose, optimum utilization of resources is important. For instance, in an organization, in order to run cloud environment smoothly, it requires optimization of resources and this will reduce human intervention and the automated systems will offer higher accuracy. Allocation of resources at appropriate instances and functions is among the key features offered by orchestration tools and same is expected to boost growth of the market during the forecast period. Cloud orchestration is facilitating intelligent prioritization of the tasks at disposal thereby, allowing organizations to save on time, cost incurred, human efforts, and most importantly reduce turnaround time (TAT).
Orchestration tools are gaining traction as they aid in managing and prioritizing complex processes in a cloud environment. This allows multiple processes to be automated and be performed remotely, thus, reducing risk of data theft or data loss due to some physical damages to the servers. Cloud orchestration irrespective of offering multiple benefits is being relatively adopted at a much lower pace. For such delayed and gradual adoption of cloud orchestration tools, multiple factors are responsible, such as high initial cost of deployment and lack of expertise in efficiently orchestrating the tasks in the cloud environment and thereby, maintain operational efficiency.
