Control-M Valuable Features

Production Engineer at Alphaserve Technologies®
The feature we use most in Control-M is related to the file transfer module. It is quite advanced compared to other tools like Automate, etc. The new version which has come of same MFT has a lot of advanced features which makes it very easy to work with. There is less need for written programs and more GUI-based stuff. View full review »

We value Control-M mainly for the ability to control multiple nodes in a coordinated manner. Control-M has the ability to really coordinate across a lot of nodes. That's the most valuable thing. Control-M is a mature tool with many features. It's pretty stable and very easy to learn. You can become an expert in it within a short time. View full review »

Control-M has a huge number of features and utilities that assist users in monitoring their schedules and developers to build schedules which interface with many technologies. Here are some that stand out: * Cross-platform support: A Linux job can be dependent on a Windows job, which can be dependent on many other flavours of hardware/software. Your batch is therefore managed by a single tool, allowing you to monitor your entire flow. * Great GUI: Easy to navigate. Customisable. Status at a glance. * Automated error handling: Depending on the exit status of a process, automated actions can be defined that might circumvent the need to callout. * Forecast utility: Particularly useful after making changes to a batch flow, to see what impact those changes will have. * Reporting utility: Generate reports for the business to track batch performance, usage, and so on. * Mobile App: Business users can track the progress of their own batch flow, on the go. * Control Modules: These allow you to define jobs that interface with databases, SFTP, SAP, and so on, directly, via secure connection profiles. * Too many great features to list; excellent product..

I think the administration part is much more valuable than any other feature. I don’t really remember the commands though, but working on the server is better than the GUI. View full review »

Product is intuitive, you can start working with it and figure out the basics pretty quickly. The built in modules (examples: File Transfer, Database, File Watcher etc.) help eliminate custom built scripts which accomplish the same thing. View full review »

Operations Manager at a retailer with 10,001+ employees
* Maintaining and monitoring of workloads have been and continue to be the most valuable feature in our environment. * There is a batch monitoring tool called Batch Impact Manager, which proactively warns when processing is behind and SLAs are in jeopardy of being missed. * Their forecasting tool is very handy. * They also have an API interface, although I cannot speak to it as we have not amassed enough experience to provide a fair assessment.
