What is most valuable?

What we find most useful from the operations side is that it provides a single pane of glass for managing that workstream. It also alerts us on failed jobs, so it's our… more »

How has it helped my organization?

It reduces our administrative costs. As much as people are in a DevOps model, we can create dashboards for tier-one people to monitor multiple jobs and then alert or call… more »

What needs improvement?

One area for improvement is the command-line interface and the API to bulk-load jobs. It's a little bit kludgy, but we still manage without it. They're working on it and… more »

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

The licensing model's flexibility is awesome. The way it's licensed for us is per master and then per agent. We have an enterprise agreement, so we have unlimited agents… more »

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

What needs improvement?

The process of getting automations done and the process of testing them is a little complicated. Anything with daily processing and nightly processing, which is something… more »

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

It's not cheap. It's a licensing system. It costs money to put it in and it's a subscription-based system. The managed service costs money on top.

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

I've used many automation tools in my career and the time to implement OpCon, compared to some of those other tools, is about the same. This is a specialized… more »

What other advice do I have?

The biggest lesson I've learned from using it is plan really well. Line up your resources and don't be afraid to do a big cut-over to it. It's a stable system. But… more »
