Reduce the number of operational files. This would make the job of a system programmer supporting ESP easier.The WCC could be improved.​The cross-platform arena, where you can run work on multiple platforms, needs improvement.Needs better documentation with fully explained examples for some of the job types.The GUI/Workstation is weak and needs to be improved. CA is working on this right now.CA Workload Automation is not part of CA's strategic vision going forward.I would like to see the Service Orchestrator, a B2B product, and maybe a process audit.They could do better supporting it. They have too many of the same type of products, so sometimes it doesn't get as much attention as it should.
