CA Workload Automation Customer Service and Technical Support

Program Analyst at a energy/utilities company with 1,001-5,000 employees
I do not think that I called technical support, though I think we have reported a software bug. There is one bug that we noticed, which is kind of annoying. So, aside from that, I do not think we used technical support at all. I have looked up stuff on the CA Community. I might have gone into some of the Community pages to look for a solution. Nothing really memorable though. Since we are still using the AE product and we are just transferring into it, we are still talking to the consultants, the people who actually came in and sold it to us, installed it, and trained us. So, we still have those as resources at this time. We have not really needed the Community. View full review »

We have used it before, however, we haven't really needed it too much. Usually, most of the issues that we would have, you can find documentation about them somewhere online. We also know that there are other universities in Georgia that use this product so we usually end up reaching out to them before we have any other issues. View full review »
Greg Wade
Senior IT Developer at a energy/utilities company with 1,001-5,000 employees
The initial contact is not very reliable. We have to escalate through channels to get to somebody who knows what's going on. It takes time that we do not necessarily have. It is because its that the support tech is not dedicated to the product and they do not know how to fix our exact issue. We have waited years for a problem to be resolved. The tickets get closed with no resolution, and there should be a resolution but we can't get a reliable answer. We run out of patience and just close the tickets. We take advantage of the CA Community, however it is hit and miss. There are a lot of good questions and answers, but also a lot of simple ones, where people just look at them and go, "Just read the manual. It's in there." View full review »

Db2 Says Programer at a insurance company with 5,001-10,000 employees
I have not used tech support. Other people in my area have. They seem easy to work with. You get the documentation to them; they get back to you in a couple days with what they've found. View full review »

Pete Wirfs
Programming Specialist at SAIF Corporation
I love those guys at tech support. In fact, I recently had a call where someone was concerned that I was upset, so they even had someone else call me to discuss with me how I felt about my call. I was not upset, but I appreciated their follow-through. They are highly knowledgeable. They seem to be product experts. View full review »
Sr. Systems Programmer at a financial services firm with 1,001-5,000 employees
We've completely turned over our scheduling area, and a lot of questions go to CA support. The people in the CA support for ESP have been there for a long time. I know some of them from the time when they worked for Cybermation, and they are very good. I trust their answers. Tech support is a 10 out of 10. View full review »
IT System Analyst Senior at a financial services firm with 10,001+ employees
Customer service with CA 7 has been very good. They've helped us through several upgrades, with tickets around those. Whenever we've had issues, they've been able to point out where to look to see what potentially is affecting 7 itself. View full review »

Philippe Thérond
Enterprise IT Management Consultant with 51-200 employees
Customer Service: The user conference is a great way to catch the attention of the development and product management team. In general they are keen to discuss functionality and open to (good) suggestions Technical Support: Technical support is overall very good both in turnaround time and quality, but a bit less so for challenging issues which can take a while to find their way to the right technician unless they are an emergency View full review »

Technical support, when it was Cybermation, was much more solid. Now that it's CA, at times the support is excellent and other times it’s not as good. View full review »

Rafael Lubera
Technology Special Automation at CME Group Inc.
This is probably something you don't want to hear, but support seems to be getting worse over the years. For some reason the technical knowledge is missing. Occasionally, you actually have to get all the way to Austria to actually get a resolution, which is where the product is originally from. View full review »

IT Support at a financial services firm with 10,001+ employees
We've used it for a couple of questions when we didn't know the answers. They were great, and very informative. We've even used it for CA Datacom. And since I was a newbie doing upgrades with that, they pretty much held my hand through it, and gave me different suggestions. So, thumbs up to them. View full review »

System Architect at a financial services firm with 51-200 employees
There is a slow response time. Unless, you say it's severity level one. That will give you a two hour timing window for them to call you. It doesn't really happen exactly in two hours, but they try. View full review »
