Automic Workload Automation Review

It saves us from making a lot of mistakes. It is now easier to align complex things.

What is our primary use case?

We use it to automate infrastructure and business. We do quite a lot of different stuff: sometimes orchestration, sometimes more automation.

How has it helped my organization?

It saves a lot of time and mistakes, because we used to do a lot of manual work. Since we added automation a little bit over a year now, it has enhanced our daily work, especially for the very repetitive tasks that we did.

What is most valuable?

We can use anything on the server, like PowerShell and flash. We can use whatever language that will make things easier.

What needs improvement?

Depending on the properties of the jobs and pre- and post-conditions, there needs to be more flexible and richer conditions that I can check for. This would be a great addition.

For how long have I used the solution?

More than five years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

It is stable 99% of the time.

Our issues have been mostly because of the Tomcat interface. The other interface, the fat client, has been stable until now, and looks good.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

It is very scalable.

How is customer service and technical support?

Technical support is very good.

How was the initial setup?

If the environment is straightforward, then the initial setup will be straightforward.

What was our ROI?

It saves us from making a lot of mistakes. It is now easier to align complex things.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

Automic is gaining much more ground than other products. The other one is the BMC, but it is not as good.
