What is most valuable?

The solution is very stable. Once we solved the problem with the database memory, we were able to get telemetry parameters. The solution is easy to manipulate and has good performance.

What needs improvement?

We have difficulties manipulating the agent for Windows. We also have many problems with memory databases and the preconditions do not work exactly how we want them to. They should resolve the precondition and explore XML. We have explored… more»

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

I recommend that small companies use just one license, one automation in which, every server application has the agent. For a big company, you should get three or four licenses.

What other advice do I have?

The solution is really perfect for a big enterprise using more than 100 or 200 applications. I would rate the solution eight out of ten.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

I have heard that we had an intention to use Control-M. But, we opted for CA's automation because they have the potential to use many applications.

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

I don't have an immediate comment on pricing as it's not something that I handle. My understanding is that it varies from enterprise licensing to individual department licensing.

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

We've used a few different solutions in the past including CA Workload Animation ESP and Control-M.

What other advice do I have?

I'd recommend the solution. As long as the migration from other software to this one is made easy, it would be good to switch. I'd rate the solution eight out of ten.
