CA Workload Automation Review

Scalable tool that supports mainframe systems and allows us to see jobs over the distributed servers.


What is most valuable?

The valuable feature is that it is mainframe.

How has it helped my organization?

We did not have the visibility of the distributed jobs until we used ESP Workload automation and we can now schedule them together with our mainframe jobs.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

We've had stability problems with the tool.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

It is scalable, but we're probably not using it to the best of our ability. We might be migrating to CA Workload Automation iDash.

How is customer service and technical support?

I haven’t used technical support, but one of my coworkers has used them and she’s happy with them.

How was the initial setup?

I was involved with the installation. At first, I found it to be complex, but now I think it's pretty user-friendly.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We were looking at IBM. Because our industry was growing as far as using servers, CA was a better fit.

What other advice do I have?

I would recommend this product to others.
