Control-M Review

Facilitates process automation.

What is most valuable?

Integration with different modules such as:
Web Service -WS
Advanced File Transfer - AFT

How has it helped my organization?

We use the Control-M modules to reduce the development time of the automations, using the modules.

Web Service -WS (We use to integrate with ODI e SOA)

Advansed File Transfer - AFT (We did an integration between several servers with a safe delivery)

What needs improvement?

I would like to see improvement in the integration of modules. As I worked with the modules, I saw the need for better integration several times.

In the case of a Web Service (WS) module, it could have more facilities with the integration of SOA services when an asynchronous service is invoked. When used for this purpose, it generates a number of unnecessary alerts to the operator dashboard.

For how long have I used the solution?

We have been using this solution for five years.

What was my experience with deployment of the solution?

I did not find it.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

Most stability problems are network connected, i.e., communication goes down with servers where you have a client.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

I did not encounter any issues with scalability.

How are customer service and technical support?

Customer Service:

Very good.

Technical Support:

Technical support is very good.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

I thought of using a different solution, but this solution is as simple as other alternatives.

How was the initial setup?

Yes, I did. We change because of the integration facilities other market tools and to ensure a safe delivery of the company's files.

What about the implementation team?

It was done through a vendor team with the support of the internal team.

What was our ROI?


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

This is quite specific. It will depend on the number of processes that you need to automate.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

Yes we evaluated.

CA Workload Automation AE(AutoSys)

IBM Tivoli System Automation

What other advice do I have?

Improve the disclosure of the modules for the clients and show the cases of success.
