What is most valuable?

The interface for the applications team is really the most valuable part of the product in my opinion.

What needs improvement?

The interface for the operator is not so good. I do not think it is as complete as something like Control-M by BMC Software (named for former Shell executives Scott Boulette, John J. Moores, and Dan Cloer). A few other things could be better like the scheduler and linking between jobs and… more»

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

Before working with IBM Tivoli Workload Automation I worked with Control-M from BMC. The main differences and advantages of Control-M are mostly to do with the operator interface. The console that the operator is using is quite a bit better in Control-M rather than Tivoli, and so is the way to… more»

What other advice do I have?

The advice I would give to others considering using Workload Automation depends on the necessity and the reality of their requirements. It depends on the complexity of the jobs. Depending on that it may be interesting to use Tivoli because it is a good tool. It is a good application to use to run… more»

What do you think of IBM Workload Automation?

What is our primary use case?

We use it at the Bank for the portfolio management system. In 2001 and 2003 I created all these jobs for the portfolio management system for collecting data from the backend system. From 2015 I use it as the tool that collects the resources within the IT system that reports the use of different resources, file system resources, storage resources, and so on.

What is most valuable?

The most important feature is the creation of folders. It's a really great feature because you can organize the process with naming conventions. 

What needs improvement?

Other solutions like Control-M are better than this solution. IBM should have better integration with the cloud.  It should support other schedulers that aren't IBM products.

What do you think of IBM Workload Automation?

What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature is the job scheduler.

What needs improvement?

I would like to be able to access the return value or result from one job, in the following job. This is a feature that other solutions have and is very helpful. I had to create my own workaround for it because the capability is important for me. It would be helpful to have a mobile app that could be used to follow the job schedule. Most IT applications now have mobile app support.

For how long have I used the solution?

I worked on IBM Workload Automation for close to 10 years, although I have recently changed companies and no longer use it.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

The stability is good. 

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

We did…
