To me, the most valuable features are its ease-of-use and being able to clone some of what you've done with some of the rules and so on. It makes it really easy to administer and I've had people tell me that it's one of the best automated systems they've ever worked on. View full review »

Michelle Browning
Systems Programmer at Regions Financial Corporation
It brings up the jobs. We can schedule them into different groups, so we can bring up the base system first and then the applications just run on top of the that; then the jobs that aren't quite as important after that. We can enter special commands. It can go out and see messages as the job comes up, and you can reply commands to the messages. Satisfies the dependencies. What I like about it personally is that I can go out and interrupt what's going on and bring a job down if I need to, and bring it back up. It works out really well. View full review »

It works, and as far as the scheduling piece, it is wonderfully well-written and I use it all the time. If something breaks and it goes down when it's not supposed to, automation brings it right back up. So it's really used mainly for availability. View full review »
