CA Workload Automation Review

Streamlines job submission and reduces the possibility of scheduling errors

How has it helped my organization?

Without this product we would have to manually submit jobs and it would take longer. There would also be a much greater possibility of jobs running wrong and/or not at the right time.

What is most valuable?

The scheduling feature allows us to know when jobs are going to run and makes sure they run in the order needed.

What needs improvement?

Because this product only computes processing days, it is hard when things need to be scheduled according to non-processing days. 

Some of the reports are either a bit hard to understand or don’t give you what you might expect to see.

For how long have I used the solution?

More than five years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

No issues.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

No issues.

How is customer service and technical support?

Tech support is excellent, especially if you have a problem that gets bumped to level-two people. The level-two people are great at figuring out what happened and what you do next.

Which solutions did we use previously?

We switched from Burroughs to IBM, previously.

How was the initial setup?

Complex, but we have a complex schedule.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

I’m not involved in this aspect.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

Yes, IBM’s solution.

What other advice do I have?

Get on the community. Ask questions.
