Cons
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.One of the biggest features I've been asked by my team to put in there is opening more scripting languages to be part of the platform. There is a little bit of a learning curve in learning how to code some of the workflows in Automic at this time. If widely used languages like Perl and Python were integrated, on top of what's already there, the proprietary language, it would make it easier to on-board new resources.

There is a slow response time by tech support. 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.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.

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.

It is overpriced.I certainly think the pricing is worth the value.People need to pay attention to how they use their ESP agents on the distributed platform. 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.
