Most Helpful Review
An umbrella system allowing us to integrate many different systems into our heterogeneous environment
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
The event monitor is very good. You can monitor when the file is created so you can pick up the file once it's done.
It is an umbrella system that allows us to integrate many different systems into our heterogeneous environment.
The main benefit is you can deploy everything with it.
It can support very complex environments and dependencies.
It gives us good feedback on visualizations and on how our processes have progressed.
The most valuable feature is the ability to see which problems have been resolved from deployment.
The product provides efficiency, in terms time, cost, and resources.
It provides a wonderful user interface which is easy to use.
The most valuable feature of this solution is the scheduler.
I have found new methods for converting scripts from Dollar U to ONE Automation. For example, I take the dynamic library from Dollar U and put it in the dynamic binary library in ONE Automation. This enables us to use Dollar U scripts in ONE Automation.
The most valuable feature is the one for SAP batch processing... There are certain other mid-level workload automation tools which can handle the OS level, but SAP is something which is really very critical. Automic stands out from the ordinary tools because handling SAP processes is absolutely easy with it.
It saves a lot of time and mistakes, because we used to do a lot of manual work. Since we added automation a little bit over a year now, it has enhanced our daily work.
We automate very manual, robust tasks, which are very time consuming and not error-free.
We impose some standards for backup and restore operations.
An important feature is the ability to modify PeopleSoft Run Controls at run-time.
It's pretty stable. After implementation, there hasn't been a single event where we shifted our jobs for the day from automated to manual.
There needs to be better error handling and error descriptions. It should be more clear what the errors are and what we can do to fix them.
It would be very beneficial for us to see integrations into cloud environments, especially into the Google Cloud environment because we are heading towards cloud.
There is an issue with the stability in the tool. The process of agent will stop, then the monitoring agent can't be recognized because the process is running, but you can talk with the system.
If you have a technical problem and need development of the tool, the support team is terrible, because they cannot help with the technical details.
At the moment, the version that we are using (version 12.0), the environment is complex with multiple installations. Therefore, the monitoring is not scalable, but this should be improved in 12.1 and 12.2.
We hope that we can integrate the new CD Directive into our portfolio, so we can bring the deployment and release management closer together.
The dashboard should allow you to see the current state of packages in each environment, not only on an individual application basis, but across the entire application platform.
I would like to see more types of Calendars in the next release of this solution.
There were many bugs in the last version. For example, we could only use capital letters for searching for agent names. Also, we had a problem with ONE Automation where we couldn't use the PGA and SGA in Oracle Databases for resolving RAM because the last version didn't have this capability.
There are certain jobs that are triggered one after another. It would be helpful to have a more user-friendly way of seeing how these jobs are connecting from one server to another.
Depending on the properties of the jobs and pre- and post-conditions, there needs to be more flexible and richer conditions that I can check for. This would be a great addition.
There could be a better user interface for end users. They should make it more intuitive, not based on Java.
With every new version, things that would previously work, Automic breaks them. So, we have to report the new bugs. Therefore, every time when we patch the system, there is usually a new bug or a feature that was working, then it stops working.
There are some scripting elements that could be added.
Some of the things we don't do are mainly because we don't know how to do them. Hands-on training can be expensive, so we find other ways to work around things to forgo the hands-on training. It is also an issue because we are a Linux shop and most trainers are Windows-based.
Pricing and Cost Advice
If you have a fixed contract, it has limits to spreading out. If you have a flexible enterprise license contract, then you have a lot of scalability for this tool.
I can save time and money more quickly.
We increased our quality and reduced our time costs.
I only know that AWA is cheaper than Control-M, but I'm not aware of the numbers.
Certain licenses can be a bit expensive. The PeopleSoft agents, in particular, are a bit pricey.
This is a support system for us, not our core business, so we purchased this product inexpensively.
We came to a very good deal, but it took us three years to finalize.
We have increased efficiency with this application.
We receive time efficiency from this product.
Every time there is a task which must be repeated, the solution can reduce costs.
There are a lot of new features, but we do not use them because they are too expensive. The price point could be less.

Deliver the fully agile enterprise using CA Automic Workload Automation
The modern enterprise needs to orchestrate a complex, diverse landscape of applications, platforms and technologies. Workload automation can prove a critical differentiator, but only if it provides intelligent automation driven by data analytics.
The IT landscape is currently more complex than ever: Islands of automation are a barrier to scaling and standardizing your workload activities. Processing errors are common because of manual handoffs. And the lack of an end-to-end view of the business process make inefficiencies and problems difficult to resolve. In addition to this, you are operating 24x7 and cannot find maintenance windows to upgrade your infrastructure in order to innovate.
CA Automic Workload Automation gives you the agility, speed, visibility and scalability needed to respond to the constantly changing technology landscape. It centrally manages and automates the execution of business processes end-to-end; across mainframe, cloud and hybrid environments in a way that never stops—even when doing an upgrade to the next version.
