Hi professionals,

Some automation SW have desktop versions that are robust. 

However, I think they better manage to improve their versions in the cloud to speed up the processes of advanced integrations of all areas. 

What do you think? Is it necessary?

We are in process of evaluating best scheduler tool for our client. Currently we are using ASG Zena. We find it complex to administer and no technical documents are available to self learn.
I have gone through various articles and posts and seems like Control M, CA and Tidal are most widely used.
Can you guys please share your experiences/thoughts which one would be the best choice?
