IBM Workload Automation Review

The Long-Term Plan feature identifies what will be running during closures. It's dependable.

Valuable Features

Automation capabilities with dependencies, long-term plan and modifying current plan, and ease of use are the product's most valuable features to me.

Improvements to My Organization

When there is a holiday or emergency closing, we query the Long-Term Plan to identify what will or will not be running during the closure. Application owners review and sign off of the plan, making everyone aware of the scheduled jobs for that time frame.

Room for Improvement

We are using an outdated version. We had issues with the file dependencies. We are uncertain if it was due to application setup or the product itself.

Use of Solution

I have used this solution for 6.5 years.

Stability Issues

This has been a dependable product for us.

Scalability Issues

We did not encounter any scalability issues.

Customer Service and Technical Support

We have not utilized technical support in six years.

Other Advice

As with any new application/utility, make sure you have good training; if possible, request a trial version to become familiar with product; and ensure it meets your needs.
