What is most valuable?

The product works very well with the modules. For example, if you have MFT, Managed File Transfer, or the old AFT, you can link that to processing jobs. You can use other… more»

How has it helped my organization?

MFT takes a lot of activity and gives us a central point of control. You can do a lot of these activities without Control-M, using bespoke scripts, but the overhead is… more»

What needs improvement?

The structure between the Control-M/Server and Control-M/Agent could possibly be improved. It would also be helpful if the deployment of Control-M/Agent could be… more»

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

Sign up for BMC Software's AMIGO program (help for new installs and migrations) and go for the license where based on number of total tasks.

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

We used Cron and Windows Task Scheduler, i.e. the platform supplied solution. They are not the same as using a dedicated scheduler but they don't pretend to be.

What other advice do I have?

The work is really on the configuration side. Installation is not a problem these days. Push it out as much as possible, to have a dedicated team and to decide that you're… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

Yes, we tested $Universe, Tivoli Workload Scheduler and the solution from Tidal Software.

What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature is the integration with the workload automation solution. It has a nice dashboard for loading up the file transfers, so it's easy to follow the success or failure rates of the operations. You get notified when transfers fail, which is an important feature.

What needs improvement?

At this time, you can receive file transfers but it is not possible to send them. Ideally, we also want to be able to send files using this solution. Scalability is something that needs to be improved.

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

Prior to using this solution, we were using Axway B2Bi. We are still currently using it, alongside with the BMC MFT product.

What other advice do I have?

This product is not feature-rich but it is a solid file-transfer solution. I would say that the features they have now are very good, although the product is not complete because you cannot send files. I would recommend it but at the same time, I think that everybody needs to test it and see if it… more»
