Digital Platform Conductor
Orchestrate across your existing infrastructure tools to automate key business processes, increase IT efficiency and improve decision making.
As IT environments become more complex, varied and distributed, it is increasingly difficult to coordinate workflows across the multiple systems needed to manage your hybrid digital infrastructure. While reliance on disparate systems is unavoidable, lack of interaction between these systems leads to fragmented and siloed business processes, and dependence on manual tasks and tickets. It’s time for a new approach: Digital Platform Conductor Tools.
Oomnitza has been recognized as a Representative Vendor in the Gartner® Market Guide for Digital Platform Conductor Tools.
What is a Digital Platform Conductor?
Digital Platform Conductor (DPC) tools connect with and orchestrate all your disparate tools and systems, enabling you to manage your IT infrastructure and operations across all environments, regardless of technology. They help automate key business processes for IT, reduce reliance on error-prone manual tasks and provide input into strategic IT decision making to improve operational and financial efficiency.
According to Gartner®, “by 2026, 75% of DPC tool adopters will be consistently successful at demonstrating I&O business value, versus 25% of nonadopters.”*
“Digital platform conductor tools coordinate the various infrastructure management tools used to plan, implement, operate and monitor underpinning technology and services for applications and digital products.”
DPC tools enable you to:
- Get an overarching view of your digital infrastructure
- Automate IT processes across teams, systems and management tools
- Eliminate manual tasks, reliance on tickets and inefficiencies
- Reduce risk and costs associated with digital transformation initiatives
DPC Essential Capabilities
DPC tools integrate with and coordinate interactions across existing IT tools to provide a unified set of capabilities for managing infrastructure across on-premises, cloud and edge environments. As such, one of their key capabilities is to work with other infrastructure tools and ensure scalability, modularity, compatibility, ease of use and connectivity.
Fundamentally, DPC tools simplify automation and orchestration across complex technology estates to increase efficiency, ensure resilience and amplify existing technology value.
Workflow Automation and Service Enablement
Provide a single point of entry and automation for digital platform resource requests and route them to appropriate tools for fulfillment.
Technology Inventory and Classification
Provide an inventory of all technology assets and their dependencies that is aligned with changes to services, applications and configurations.
Cost Management and Resource Optimization
Aid directing, validating and justifying spending for digital infrastructure, and ensure the technology supply chain can meet actual demand.
Identity, Security and Compliance
Ensure compliance of digital platforms to identity requirements and security baselines as part of the organization’s cybersecurity goals.

Why you need a Digital Platform Conductor
The triple effects of hybrid and remote work, hybrid and multi-cloud adoption, and increased workforce mobility and turnover, make it more challenging for IT leaders to tackle new digital transformation projects and deliver timely business outcomes. In a recent survey by Gartner, I&O and executive IT leaders reported that lack of maturity in processes and insufficient resiliency to adapt to changes in demand are some of the key challenges they face today.
With a growing number of disparate tools needed to manage their expanding technology estate, IT organizations are increasingly reliant on manual effort to manage key business processes. The reason for this is because the tools don’t interact, and hence require a patchwork of spreadsheet analysis, tickets and error-prone manual tasks to deliver business outcomes. No wonder, IT teams tend to fall behind in completing business projects.
Digital Platform Conductor tools help solve this problem. By orchestrating across your disparate tools, they help automate key IT processes, roll out new projects more efficiently, and enable informed decision making.
“By 2026, 75% of DPC tool adopters will be consistently successful at demonstrating I&O business value, versus 25% of nonadopters.”
