What is most valuable?

The parameters in this tool are valuable, but there are also some mistakes with the management of its parameters. This tool needs more user management for its parameter. What it has is not enough.

How has it helped my organization?

The main benefit is you can deploy everything with it, but everybody has to need to use this tool in the organization. If some organizations have their own tool, it is hard to make it clear that ARA would be better if everyone used it… more»

What needs improvement?

* I need a better way to manage users. I need user groups and dynamic properties in Release Automation. * I want to access separate users in different folders. That would be good.

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

In the past, we used a mainframe system BS2000 and UC4. We used this before and was able to use BS2000 with 2000 agents, which was very important for us. We decided to use UC4 before so we are in contact with Atomic the whole time.

What other advice do I have?

I would recommend not using ARA, but Automatic Workload Automation (AWA) because it is a more flexible tool. You can deploy and do release stuff on it.

What is most valuable?

It can support the following: * Very complex environments * Very complex dependencies * Legacy environments.

How has it helped my organization?

* It supports our legacy, complex environment. * It gives us good feedback on visualizations and on how our processes have progressed. * We use it as a way to communicate during installations of complex environments to stakeholders.

What needs improvement?

At the moment, the version that we are using (version 12.0), the environment is complex with multiple installations. Therefore, the monitoring is not scalable, but this should be improved in 12.1 and 12.2.

What other advice do I have?

It is a good solution. It is very stable and supporting for legacy environments. For complex environments, which have to be installed or managed, then it is a perfect solution. We are at the starting point of our digital transformation and… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

Before we started, there was a evaluation. An interesting point was that CA was approached as one of the two solution and Automic was the other. Then came the merger, and it was clear after the merger, we would be using the Automic solution… more»

What is most valuable?

* Speed and reliability of the process. * Self-service for developers, because they are able to deploy to development departments on their own, without needing people from operations. * The product provides efficiency, in terms time, cost, and resources.

How has it helped my organization?

The bank that we work with happens to be the most innovative bank in Central and Eastern Europe. They describe their main business justification for looking for a product such as this was to maintain a competitive edge and stay on the leading edge of innovation. They have gained efficiency that they… more»

What needs improvement?

The dashboard should allow you to see the current state of packages in each environment, not only on an individual application basis, but across the entire application platform. While this has already been resolved by the in-house development team of the customer, it would be nice if it was improved… more»

What other advice do I have?

Get hands-on experience, because these solutions are very similar to each other on paper. Most important criteria when selecting a vendor: From the customer's perspective, the cost of tooling versus the productivity business benefit that it would bring in. Automic excels in this area, because it… more»

What is most valuable?

The agents are one of the solution's most valuable features. I like agents for file transfers so you can transfer the files from agent to agent on the different platforms. The event monitor is very good. You can monitor when the file is created so you can pick up the file once it's done. The… more»

What needs improvement?

The cut/paste translation can be improved. I've found that sometimes it's difficult to copy exactly between different platforms. Sometimes it takes some manual changes. The solution's implementation processes could be simplified. File transfer is not very efficient. It takes a bit longer than some… more»

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

There are no extra costs above the standard licensing fee.

What other advice do I have?

We use the on-premises deployment model. I'd rate the solution eight out of ten. I'd rate it higher if the installation was easier and if their file transfers were faster.

What is most valuable?

What we like about the product is that it is more or less an umbrella system that allows us to integrate many different systems into our heterogeneous environment.

How has it helped my organization?

It gives us the advantage to release and deploy, so if there are packages of different systems within a release plan, we are able to control and steer our releases so they are stable. This is very beneficial for us.

What needs improvement?

It would be very beneficial for us to see integrations into cloud environments, especially into the Google Cloud environment because we are heading towards cloud. This would be very interesting for us to see.

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

We were not using anything before. We were planning to do this solution by Automic at that time because the product was by Automic. They gave us a product overview and showed us what we could do with the tool. That was the start of us… more»

What other advice do I have?

I would rate the product as an eight out of 10.

What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature is the ability to see which problems have been resolved from deployment. The monitoring is easy because of the colors and statuses, which are shown by colors on the report.

How has it helped my organization?

The measurement and the display functions make it easy to report all the statuses up to management. It has helped our customers with their time, costs, and resources.

What needs improvement?

We hope that we can integrate the new CD Directive into our portfolio, so we can bring the deployment and release management closer together.

What other advice do I have?

I would absolutely recommend this product.
