Cons
As a general process automation and integration tool, it has been superseded by other offerings, notably the Workload Automation suite.The internal security model can be complex when configuring multiple user groups.It is difficult to integrate with the Active Directory (AD).It is not really scaling per say because they are not putting much into it. They are trying to push their new product.It has been a deprecated product, because it is so old. There has been a couple of new solutions that are a little more advanced.

Performance improvements in the UI would be appreciated.It lacks support and integration with cloud computing platforms.We see improvement possibilities in the processing provision of predefined evaluations or individual objects, or in the Self Service portal, which can be used by any user to monitor objects or start objects.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.

That's where some of the cost comes in, based on how many you need or how many you use.CA pricing has been a problem, and not looked upon favorably here at all.Validate how many agents you need beforehand.
