Pros
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.

It is very easy to make a software release. It used to take us at least a couple of hours to make a release, now we went to production with a new one last night. This new release took me five minutes.

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.

I certainly would like to have a better way to pass information between deployment steps using UrbanCode Deploy because that's really difficult to do.

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.
