Control-M Review

Versioning allows for a restoration when an error is found.

What is most valuable?

Promotions between environments, as well as local, mass update, versioning, and self-service.

How has it helped my organization?

It is much easier to move and copy schedules. Versioning allows for quick restoration when an error is found.

What needs improvement?

It can definitely expand promotions, so that a single job can be moved. Currently you can only promote a job by promoting the entire table. In our environment we have very similar jobs in a flow but some are different so if i want to move just one of those jobs to all the other Control-M servers i would not be able to because it would overlay the entire folder. I want to be able to copy/move just a single job to prevent the overlay.

For how long have I used the solution?

I have been using Control-M for 18 years.

What was my experience with deployment of the solution?

I have not had any issues with deployment in any of the versions.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

I can honestly say, I only had a stability issue once. Other than that one time, Control-M has been a very stable application.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

No scalability issues at all. When we grew, we upgraded the server and it was back to business as usual.

How are customer service and technical support?

Customer Service:

I would give customer service a rating of 8/10.

Technical Support:

I would give technical support a rating of 8/10.

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

We used another solution. Our company was looking to standardize across the enterprise.

How was the initial setup?

The setup was straightforward.

What about the implementation team?

We had a single contractor and our in-house team. She was very knowledgeable of the product.

Which version of this solution are you currently using?
