CA Workload Automation Review

For the last 10 years, it's become more complex, but it's also bridged our platforms and gave us the ability to recover.


Valuable Features

Our challenge is having a centralized schedule on a single pain with 180,000 jobs each day. We are looking to move to iDASH with predictive analytics. We don’t have many SLA’s. We're looking to do better with predictive analytics and we want to further integrate.

Improvements to My Organization

We were using a lot of homegrown stuff. This solution provides us with more details on jobs failing. It also gives us restorability. For the last 10 years, it's become more complex, but it's also bridged our platforms and gave us the ability to recover.

Room for Improvement

I'd like to see automation pushed even further, giving us greater looks into other systems. I'd like more enhanced process automation and have it manage a few more platforms without relying on another orchestration platform.

Use of Solution

We've used it for 10 years.

Deployment Issues

We've had no issues with deploying it.

Stability Issues

It's stable. It’s so busy finding maintenance windows, and we are currently going through exercises.

Technical support is knowledgeable and I don’t have a whole lot of complaints. We don’t get the run around.

We had already had some other CA technologies, so it was a good fit and we knew what we were dealing with.

Initial Setup

Initial setup and upgrades were straightforward.

Other Advice

Understand your needs, don’t complicate it, and understand what you are looking for. You don’t want to create an automated mess.
