At my company, if there is a limit, we are going to find it. Everything has a finite limit. No matter what people tell you about any type of software, it is always a finite limit. However, compared to other competitors' software packages, this has been a lot more stable, but no software is completely stable. If there's a limit, we're gonna find it. Our company pushes the envelope when it comes to the data we process, display, and publish to our users, so sometimes we find those limits. Overall, especially since we have dealt with the competitor for a number of years before we switched over to Automic CA, it has been pretty stable. View full review »

Data Operations Lead at 84.51
The stability of the tool is fantastic. In the year and a half, it's really only gone down a couple of times. The tool itself is very stable. What's nice is that it splits it up into clients. We have our own client where we do our own work. We don't have to cross into the path of other people; they can do their own work on their own client. From an organizational standpoint, that makes it very easy to use. The stability of the piece itself, has been proven pretty well. View full review »

It works. It does not fail. If something fails, it is not Automic. It is a script or something else. We are an electricity company, and we issue hundreds of thousands of bills to customers every month. Automic is key in getting the billing files ready, so they can be sent out to the customers. We are heavily regulated by an Irish regulator. Therefore, if there is any delay with bills going out and the process around it, we can be heavily fined. Thus, it is crucial that we have software that makes everything run smoothly. View full review »

Marcel Specht
IT Automation Specialist at Dm- Drogerie Markt
We have had issues with the performance. We have a job now in production, but the product is not very stable. ServiceNow creates problems with the Automic entry of the connector, so the stability could be a little bit better with this product. View full review »
Technical Architect at a financial services firm with 1,001-5,000 employees
Stability has been very good. We have not had any major issues or very much downtime at all. If we have had downtime, it has been planned. So, stability has never been an issue for us. View full review »
Eric Felker
Software Engineer at a media company with 10,001+ employees
All products have downtime. In our specific example, the product has become so critical for our organization that taking the necessary plan-maintenance, to do patching and upgrading, that has become a challenge for us. We're several versions behind now. Outages that we incur are at least partially our fault at this point, because our reliance on the platform has become so much that it's a struggle to even upgrade. That aside, we see some downtime from time to time. But I think some of it is self-incurred. We would do ourselves a favor in working on this, to get the platform upgraded to get to the more stable, bugs-are-fixed, and things of that nature. View full review »

Lead Systems Administrator at Great American Insurance
Stability has been great. My team, we call ourselves "the invisibles" because things run so well that sometimes you almost feel like you have to try to break something to actually get acknowledged. View full review »

The stability is fine. There are always a few little parts or points with issues, but overall, it is very stable. View full review »
Systems Engineer at a tech services company
It is quite stable. I have been with the company for a year and a half, and in that time, we have not had any major breakdowns. We do not have many issues with the stability at the moment. We are now testing on the new release and the AWI. We are a little skeptical about what is coming up, but we will wait and see. View full review »
VInce Sola
Manager, Application Administration at a leisure / travel company with 1,001-5,000 employees
There have been some issues with performance when there is slowness with database resources. We have also discovered issues with some objects if file size/count is high. I believe a patch has been created for that though. View full review »
Hubert Rossle
System Specialist at a tech services company
The system is very stable. I have very impressed with it. Also, it all depends on if it is Linux and Oracle or Windows and SQL. We have both in our company, and both are very stable. View full review »
Irvin Carney
DevOps Engineer at 84.51
Very stable. The tool we had before this tool, we were nervous around patching cycles, and we were nervous for datacenter downtime because we didn't how that tool was going to react. But this tool, far better than the tool we had before and we probably don't even really have to think about the stability. It's sort of like a good piece of software is like a good referee. If it's doing good, you don't notice it. That's the good thing about Automic. We don't even notice that it's there a lot of the time. It's a very, very stable product. View full review »
Automic Job Developer at a insurance company with 10,001+ employees
Right now, it is decent. The new version is sort of a downgrade because some features that we need are gone. The version before was more stable than the current one because we are having some problems with the performance. Therefore, I hope the next version(s) will be better again. However, right now, it is not as good as it used to be. View full review »

The performance is nice. The stability is very good. We do not have any problems concerning the stability. We have never had any major problems. We have had minor problems, but it has not crashed hard. It runs our business safely. View full review »
Automation Engineer at a tech services company with 5,001-10,000 employees
I am a long-time customer of the solution. The older versions were very stable. Then, there was a switch to versions eight and version nine. This was a few years ago. I am happy that Automic understands the needs of their customers and changed their development process, because now, the application is very stable. View full review »
I have worked a long time with this product. Formally, it was previously known as UC4. In the past, it was more stable than now. As we have seen, the latest version that we checked out at our customers was Version 12. This version needs to be more stable. The first version and service pack, we could not use at our customers because it had special bugs and issues, and we decide to wait. From my point of view, the current product needs more stability.

It's pretty stable. After implementation, there hasn't been a single event where we shifted our jobs for the day from automated to manual. View full review »
UC4 Administrator at a financial services firm
Version 10 is very stable. We have no problems with the product. Some problems could happen in the future because the current version does not seem to be stable. There are a lot of things which could bring danger into the stability of our work process, because things have been changed, and it is not possible to work the product in the same way. We have to accept the changes, and we are not sure if our employees will be able to accept the changes in such a short time frame and perform them the way they should. View full review »
Martin Mertens
Manager of Global Process Automation at Adidas Group
The system is a stable product overall. We did something maybe a little bit wrong at the beginning, so we had a little bit of an unstable product. Since we have merged to version 12, it has become a stable system. View full review »
Eric Gauthier

The stability of the platform has been excellent. They are very quick to reply to any issues that we have, and release any hotfixes to fix any issues we have had. We have not had any stability issues with the platform. View full review »
Mladen Stankovic
Systems engineer at a comms service provider with 5,001-10,000 employees
We have some systems where, every time we lose the network connection, the software, after five or 10 minutes, is inoperable. With Automic, we monitor what is happening, and if network connectivity is down, Automic deletes all the logs that caused the system to crash. Before Automic, we needed to handle these situations manually. Now, every time that logs crowd the system, Automic deletes them and solves the problem. That means we do not have this type of downtime anymore. It is system crucial for us. View full review »

This is a very stable product. When it comes to a new release, you sometimes have to be a bit more careful. For the rest, it is very stable. Over the years, it has also become more stable. View full review »

I have been working on it for about 12 years now. We have had three unplanned outages throughout the whole time, and all three were man-made errors (someone pulling the plug out). View full review »
Automation Admin
Version 10 is stable. New software never comes out without some problems. That is the problem when you go with new. Therefore, we are waiting a little bit, since it is very important that the software is stable. In the near future, we must have a stable software that we can do our job yesterday, today, and tomorrow. This is the most important thing; you must trust the software. View full review »

Automation Engine Admin at a manufacturing company with 10,001+ employees
It is more stable now. In the previous versions 8 and 10, it is more stable, but with the AVI version 12, it is more complicated and we encounter a lot of problems. We need to install hot pieces and badges every time, so it means downtime for us. This is starting from version 12, which is why we are not happy with it. View full review »
Rolf-Peter Langer
Admin Developer And SAP Admin at a wholesaler/distributor
Now, we have version 12 running. We do not like having the newer functions, because it affects the stability. The stability must be better, and the system must work with better functionality, as we have many bugs in this version. This is not good. CA must have higher quality. View full review »
Matthias Wanke
Automation Engineer at Ing-Diba Ag
The stability is not as good as it was in former years. Stability has gone down from version to version, but it is probably due to the product's complexity and transitions in the company. Stability could be better, as it was better in the past. View full review »
Enzo Fusco

Tomas Ferenc
ICT Consultant at a tech services company with 10,001+ employees
I am working with Workload Automation for more than ten years, when it was named UC4, then renamed again, etc. We have never had big problems with stability of this product. The performance is very good. If there are problems, they will be caused by somebody doing something wrong. Usually the product does not have a lot of problems, and we did recognize when the application has failed due to errors. View full review »

Department Manager at a manufacturing company with 10,001+ employees
It runs stably. However, after a version upgrade, the stability should be better. There are too many bugs to be solved after a version upgrade. We are working on the limits of an architecture with 16,000 platforms. It is impossible to test everything out in the software lab of CA. I wish it would be improved. View full review »

Compared to other products, the stability is remarkable. We do not use some of the special features. We use a very plain level of it: just starts and stops, calendar functions, schedules, and events. We have no add-ons on top of them. View full review »

The stability is not as good as it could be, because we are on version 10, but it is okay. Every time we have an upgrade for a new version, we have stability problems, because the versions are not as good as they should be. Then, after a few months, they get more stability, and we are happy with it. View full review »
