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

What is most valuable?

The most valuable parts are the scalability and flexibility, where you can do whatever you think, then you can realize it in the product and have many ways to do it. So, there is not one road you can take, but many roads.

How has it helped my organization?

You gain a lot of time and effort because you can automatize many things. Repetitive tasks costs us, so we can reduce them to zero effort and minimal costs by using the product.

What needs improvement?

There is one missing part in the product concerning recurring tasks. You can schedule a recurring task by a context action, and run it as recurrent, but it creates a time container which can be quit and disappears. So, it doesn't remain in… more »

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

In the beginning, we used a banking solution which was running on one platform. It was AS/400 at the time. We were changing the banking platform so it moved to a new platform. The old scheduler did not exist for the new platform… more »

What other advice do I have?

I would rate it as a nine out of 10, not the best one. It gets a minus one because of the new web interface, because it is not so easy to handle nor is it intuitive to use like the old one. As for the rest, you can do everything you want… more »

What is most valuable?

It is an easy product to use, and we can use it for end-to-end process automation. We also have the capabilities to do dashboarding, therefore we have an analytics product that can provide other… more »

How has it helped my organization?

One key point for our selling is our business's dashboarding. It was something very important and we used it at the beginning very much.

What needs improvement?

We would like to see more dashboarding into the product, maybe an embedded Java API which we would be able to load on our own objects into the system. We were writing them on our own, but we would… more »

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

Our old solution was not able to deliver a real end-to-end automation. It was embedded in SAP. An excellent product for SAP so far, but it is not able to be scalable for the end-to-end. This was the… more »

What other advice do I have?

I would like to rate it as an eight out of 10, because there is room for improvement, and I would like to see this from Automic. They should continue to work on the product to improve the product. If… more »

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

On the shortlist, when we purchased the product, we had CA, Stonebranch, BMC Control-M, Automic, and our current vendor in mind. A few of them were kicked out during the first session because they… more »

The two main things about it are its versatility and stability. For versatility, we bought it to do one job, and we now use it now for several jobs on all different types of applications. In regards to its stability, it is very reliable. We… more »

How has it helped my organization?

One of the uses that we decided to use it for is site switching. We have two data centers, and we have critical applications in both data centers. We site switch them twice a year just to make sure the DR is in place. It takes just an hour… more »

What needs improvement?

The new user interface AWI could improve. It is quite easy to use and work around, but it has lost some of the functionality that we used to have in our Vim client user interface.

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

We bought this back in 2004. We were upgrading all of our systems to SAP systems, and we wanted a scheduler. We did not want to use the SAP scheduler, so we were recommended UC4 (as it was at the time). That is why we brought it in. It was… more »

What other advice do I have?

Because of its stability and versatility, I give it a nine out of 10. I never give tens. Most important criteria when selecting a vendor: Support is very important. Also, if we are looking for a solution, we might go to Automic, and say… more »

What is most valuable?

I am using Automic Workload Automation for disaster recovery, and its monitoring capabilities and its scalability for our operations. It is very good.

How has it helped my organization?

We are using Automic in a wide range of operations in our production site and our disaster recovery site. In addition, we are using it in our production site as an ITSM integration tool.

What needs improvement?

The SSH agent is missing in version 12.1. Maybe it would be a good addition to see on the web client of the next version of Atomic.

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

We were not previously using another product. However, we did have our own automation solution (scripting). Before Automic, there was no automation product.

What other advice do I have?

I will give it an eight out of 10, because no product is as good as a 10. There is room for improvement for Automic, but I am pleased to use it.

What is most valuable?

It depends for me as an administrator. There are a lot of features which help us get a stable application. It is easy to have a stable production line, because this app supports us very well.

How has it helped my organization?

It is a batch application. We have a daily batch that we have to start. This application controls the batching. So, this application is essential to our company. We have a lot of places in Germany. For example, if there was someone in… more »

What needs improvement?

I hope in the next release that they will solve all the bugs which they have found in development. I hope going forward they will make some changes to the documentation. I hope they will write into the documentation what has changed and… more »

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

When I came to the company, they were already using Automic. They had been using it for a long time.

What other advice do I have?

I prefer this product.

What is most valuable?

We are able to combine job scripting on the server and automation engine on the GUI. Therefore, we are capable to work in SAP and on the servers, then file transfer the whole product line, which Automic offers.

How has it helped my organization?

It is easy to learn, but hard to master. If you have been working for years with this product, it is easy to understand the whole product and work with the needs that we have. Therefore, it offers a lot of things that we require. So, it is… more »

What needs improvement?

Some of the usual features are now not there, for example: For calendar details, in versions before, you could see it because it was a different color or different letter. Now, it is all similar icons, and some features are marking more… more »

What other advice do I have?

The version before was overloaded because if opened various windows, it was not easy to understand if you were new to the product. The newest version is easier to understand. However, right now, the performance is not as good as it used to… more »

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

If the company is big, use Automic because you are able to automate things more easily. If the company is smaller, use Control-M. The understanding of it is easier than Automic, because it offers more. So, if you are smaller and don't need… more »

What is most valuable?

You can create very fine, granular workflows with a lot of possibilities. It gives you the possibility to do things in many ways. We do not have so many cases where you just can copy information here and there. Our customers have special needs, and we can use the tool to do that.

How has it helped my organization?

The company does not notice our team much, which is not so good. However, that is because we can are quick and solve problems before they happen. We monitor and see where problems might occur, so we are not noticed so much in the company, but it helps in avoiding problems. The automation helps a… more »

What needs improvement?

I am heading up the AWI. I desperately miss the possibility to show my read-only users on the Explorer side only their folders, not all the folders. This is something I would like to have on the dashboards (for example), where I can show them from an assembly side just their folders, not all the… more »

What other advice do I have?

What is most valuable?

* All the possibilities, like scripting different objects. * All the components that can be used to design workflows; process automation.

What needs improvement?

There are some problems when using the new interface, which is normal, as it is a new technology. In the future, it will be much better. Hopefully, Automic is working hard on the issue. We would like to see critical path analyzers. I am not… more »

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

It was 13 years ago, we previously used Control-M and switched to UC4. This was a management decision.

What other advice do I have?

Test it for a long time. You have to look if it fits into the mindset of your company. Main criteria when selecting a vendor: We look to other companies about the following: * What do they use? * How is their experience? * Does the support… more »

What is most valuable?

The main features are the enormous, stripped function, which the software provides. Also, its many different agents which are supported in different platforms.

How has it helped my organization?

One of the benefits is we have one view of our automated things. We do not have different automated silos. We have one view for our operators, which are doing things 24/7, and need just one interface, not multiple ones.

What needs improvement?

After the merger, it is getting more American. Now, they do not have support in French and have limited German documentation. This is a critical problem for companies who have older generations who did not have English in school. The big… more »

What other advice do I have?

You should have a look at Automic, but also at their competition. There are a few things which they need to change. I would not have said this a few years ago, but now they need to improve.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

Possibly IBM, because we are a big IBM customer.

What is most valuable?

The most valuable features are that a lot systems are supported. You can use this for z/OS, Windows, Unix, SAP, etc.

How has it helped my organization?

It works to automate business processes over all the systems. You have a central point where you can automate everything. It had a big impact on time, cost, and resources because it was the first… more »

What needs improvement?

The problem is when you have a major update, afterwards you have small problems. This is with every software where you have to find some solutions for your problems after updates. However, after the… more »

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

There are a lot of new features, but we do not use them because they are too expensive. The price point could be less.

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

We were previously using CA-7.

What other advice do I have?

You can't go wrong with Automic, because it is supporting every common system. Most important criteria when selecting a vendor: * Stability. * Support.

How has it helped my organization?

Our company uses it to connect different systems. That is a big feature of the system and platform. We are a small company. The system runs fine. We have no performance problems.

What needs improvement?

There are too many functions and features in the system. The basic must run first. Refine the basics instead of adding more features.

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

My boss says, "It is a little expensive." For example, I must pay a lot money if I need to have a DB agent. This is too expensive for us as a small company, so I use SQL *Plus. This costs us nothing. We cannot use all the functions because they are too expensive.

What other advice do I have?

I must have a tool which works. I have a new version, but I have problems. That is not good. However, if we have no problems with the quality, we will probably use the product a long time. I like this product. I know what it can do.

What is most valuable?

* Flexibility * Easy to use * Stable automation engine * We do not have to use a broad variety of agents to connect to different types of systems.

How has it helped my organization?

We have seen improvements in time efficiency and cost resources, because we are mainly focused on the SAP area, and its automation in that part. We also have some other complex areas where we help the… more »

What needs improvement?

* We would like to have some features with the AWI with the founding technique, which cannot currently be delivered. * We would like some advantages, which we had with the Java UI, with the automation… more »

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

Initial reason was the projects which from SAP R2 to R3. That was the reason why they looked for a different scheduling system. Meanwhile, we are controlling nearly all SAP systems that we have, so it… more »

What other advice do I have?

Have a look at following: * Technical functionality * Attitude of the vendor * The way that they are in contact with their customers. * Flexibility of the solution. Most important criteria when… more »

What is most valuable?

Our key feature is that we have different clients for different environments. We can manage all our environments using a transport case as a name of a feature. It is very helpful to have the same setup in each environment.

What needs improvement?

The new user interface needs improvement. The previous version was good and stable. Now, we have to check the new one before using a web browser. It is not stable. We have been waiting 11 years for release management, which will be in the next release.

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

We had a couple of solutions in place starting from Windows, Unix crontab, and other batch controlling software (like Control-M, Redwood, etc.). Batches interact with all applications, so the batch structure is more complex and using different tools was not a solution. Therefore, we needed to have… more »

What other advice do I have?

Most important criteria when selecting a vendor: The tool is more important than the vendor. * Look how comfortable the tool is. * How it has performed. * The vendor name or costs are just a second point of the evaluation.

What do you think of Automic Workload Automation?

What is our primary use case?

We use Workload Automation to control all our processes and the batch control. We are working with version 10, and need to upgrade to version 12.2.

How has it helped my organization?

The product is clear and very visual.  We receive feedback right at the moment that we need it.  We are able to control and change our processes when necessary.

What is most valuable?

At the moment, we have clear batches to see workflows to control. In the next version, I do not know what is coming up for us.

What needs improvement?

The workflows should be clearer and more expressive. I need this going forward.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

We have downtime during every upgrade. In the normal process, it works fine.

What do you think of Automic Workload Automation?

What is our primary use case?

Our customers use it for scheduling. It performs quite well. It depends on the customer. Some customers do not use it with all the features that the product offers. They only use a small set of what the product can do.

How has it helped my organization?

Reliability: You can count on it. It has saved my customers time, money, resources, and efficiency.

What is most valuable?

Monitoring is very good.

What needs improvement?

For power users, it does not work well for them at the moment. The event monitoring is very good. It has become a great part of the product suite. However, most customers rarely use it.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

At the moment, it is working quite well. Version nine's stability was not good.…

What do you think of Automic Workload Automation?

What is our primary use case?

We use it to automate our business. While we have had some issues, it is mostly perfect. If it is set up, it is running.

What is most valuable?

It does its job.

What needs improvement?

Token-based authentication: Where we do not have to use a password, and can use tokens for authentication in other systems.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

Apart from the new UI, it is very stable. The new UI feels unready. It makes your browsers crash.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

The scalability is very good. We can scale it however we want. We have seen new add-ons, such as the event machine. There is always something to augment. You have to improve your systems, but there are no seen limits.

What do you think of Automic Workload Automation?

What is our primary use case?

We use it for batch processing. It is performing well.

How has it helped my organization?

We are doing the end of day processing, as we are a bank. It is very important for us that we do not have one hour of downtime, because we are online the whole day, 24/7. It helps our efficiency because it is a batch processing tool which works without a menu.

What is most valuable?

We are an old-fashioned company. We are only using the product for batch processing.

What needs improvement?

I would like a good AWI in the next release. The AWI is not fully functional at this time.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

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…

Most important criteria when selecting a vendor: * Product features (i.e., flexibility). * It must fit the requirements. * A partner that you can rely on.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We evaluated some competitors a decade ago, and Automic (UC4) was the best choice. We look at the product and features. We did tests and an installation of the product, then we decided on Automic. The other competitors, 10 years ago, were… more »

How has it helped my organization?

Overall, it seems more expensive, because Workload Automation can save a lot of time and human resources. It does give our customers a competitive… more »

What needs improvement?

From Workload Automation, which is missing for me personally, is a workload portion.

How has it helped my organization?

We were using UC4, which was very good. We have had some challenges within the application as it moves forward to the new features. For example, our users are used to the flatline of the UC4.

What other advice do I have?

Automation is very powerful. This solution is flexible in terms of platform integration. They need better CA support , because in terms of issues and problem solving, the support is not good. It would be much better if CA had some dedicated support to customers.

What is most valuable?

It is easy to manage and customize the system. It performs well.

How has it helped my organization?

It helps us manage production and provides an overview of production along with a review of past performance. The most important thing is having no downtime. We do not have any downtime for support or release changes.

What needs improvement?

Today, we use a rich client for this product. In the future, or for the next release, they will be using a web interface. This web interface is not as scalable as the rich client for us. The web client is not 100 percent programmed as we… more »

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

In the past, we had CA-7. CA built this mainframe schedule. Then, we have canceled the contract to CA, and decided to go with UC4. Now, UC4 is a part of CA, and now we have a contract with CA again.

What other advice do I have?

I would recommend using Automic.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

From the bad products, the Automic is the best. All products in the market are not good since they are simple workload scheduling. There are some things are missing in the Automic product, which our management does not see.

What do you think of Automic Workload Automation?

What is our primary use case?

Our primary use case is release automation.  We did a PoC last month, and are planning on probably implementing the product.

How has it helped my organization?

We have seen a cost improvement from it.

What is most valuable?

It is a way to test the system from production, which is nice.

What needs improvement?

It is very difficult to migrate. We want to buy one package. The release automation should be in one package.

For how long have I used the solution?

Trial/evaluations only.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

It is a stable product. 

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

What needs improvement?

I would like more training on workload automation, because I do not have a complete insight of the product yet. The user interface could be a little more user-friendly, as it is not the best out there.

What other advice do I have?

Most important criteria when selecting a vendor: * The brand. * Ease of use.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

CA was the only vendor on our shortlist. We are a partner of CA technology. They let us know that they wanted us to invest in this product, particularly in Italy, because they work in Italy. That is why I started to learn this product.

What is our primary use case?

We have many systems, like SAP, Linux, and Windows systems. We use it for crossover and production, beginning from Host to SAP to Windows, to make a print page for all our users and customers. It is not possible do our jobs without automation software. Automic is a great help to us. We have been using automation since 2003 (version 263.G).

What other advice do I have?

Look at it and test it, because it is a very good product.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We evaluate vendors every year to see if it is possible to change. We look everywhere. We have had Atomic since 2005. It was the only software with scheduling on the mainframe for clients.

What do you think of Automic Workload Automation?

What is our primary use case?

We use it for simple job scheduling, mainly for SAP. Two to three parts are for SAP, job scheduling, and smaller and larger workflows. It performs well.

What is most valuable?

Our customers appreciate it mostly because it takes a lot of effort away from them. You can trust the system. If the system works well, the customers are satisfied.  Most of our issues are related to the system, not the job scheduling, such as, bugs and unexpected downtime of the application or database.

What needs improvement?

What do you think of Automic Workload Automation?

What is our primary use case?

We are using mainly Workload Automation for all types of jobs over different servers and operating systems.

How has it helped my organization?

Without automation, it would be nearly impossible to do all the jobs that we are doing.

What is most valuable?

It is flexible. We can do additional scripting in Automic script, in combination with JSL language.

What needs improvement?

Documentation is not great. It was previously much better. I would like to see features from "Prompt" sets in read Masks.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

At the moment, we are using 2.0. The job automation is okay. The main functions are stable. There are bugs though.

What is Automic Workload Automation?

Deliver the fully agile enterprise using CA Automic Workload Automation 

The modern enterprise needs to orchestrate a complex, diverse landscape of applications, platforms and technologies. Workload automation can prove a critical differentiator, but only if it provides intelligent automation driven by data analytics.

The IT landscape is currently more complex than ever: Islands of automation are a barrier to scaling and standardizing your workload activities. Processing errors are common because of manual handoffs. And the lack of an end-to-end view of the business process make inefficiencies and problems difficult to resolve. In addition to this, you are operating 24x7 and cannot find maintenance windows to upgrade your infrastructure in order to innovate. 

CA Automic Workload Automation gives you the agility, speed, visibility and scalability needed to respond to the constantly changing technology landscape. It centrally manages and automates the execution of business processes end-to-end; across mainframe, cloud and hybrid environments in a way that never stops—even when doing an upgrade to the next version.
