What is most valuable?

I think one of the valuable features of AutoSys is the easy configuration and integration of this tool with SAP. It's a critical part of managing the solution. In terms of the basic functionality, I found this to be a really excellent tool to work with. There are minimal issues and minimal maintenance.

What needs improvement?

Support definitely needs improvement. It's possible they're in some kind of transition so I'd like to give them the benefit of the doubt but it's an issue. The pricing is definitely something they should look at, it's quite expensive. Finally, the latest features like the quick searching or better reporting and analysis of the jobs which are running in, needs to be improved. It's a great product… more »

What other advice do I have?

AutoSys is out of line with the latest trends of the IT industry, like the quick searching and things like that. It requires special skills which you have to develop in your team in order to manage it. That said, it's an excellent product and will give you the functionalities that you need. I would rate this solution a six out of 10.

How has it helped my organization?

This solution enables us to improve our daily processing times. We can do everything faster than before we used this solution.

What needs improvement?

The installation process is complex, and is pretty archaic. The people who developed this had very little concern with GUI interface and it is all command line. Everything is K-space, and if you misspell a task by uppercase, lower case, etc. you just completely think that the task is different.

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

It is an overpriced solution.

What other advice do I have?

I would not say this is for a large shop, but for a small shop it is overpriced.

What is most valuable?

Virtual machine usage: It helped us to schedule the job to run on multiple servers based on the workload. It is automatically taking care of workload balance based on configuration settings. Calendar usage is also very useful. It allows us to use our own calendar.

How has it helped my organization?

It helped us to avoid manual error. It helped us to reduce the manual efforts also. Helped us by giving alerts for long running jobs.

What needs improvement?

* It needs improvement in the high-availability side. * It needs improvement in WCC console and EEM console to make it user-friendly.
