Sometime ago I have preapring a comparison matrix of workload automation tools. Control-M is one of top schedulers it is very up to date regarding cutting-edge technologies with one con - it is a fat client.  It is not web-based so you need to install client on every workstation, visibility is also limited especially for huge constructs like 100+ tasks/jobs. Personally I recommend to look on BMC's alternative Stonebranch's Universal Automation Center. I am working for 6 years now using this tool for enterprise class workloads (ING).   Appolication is satisfying Security requirements, it is stable, flexible, it supports unix/windows/zos platforms and some agentless technologies too. Price for the software is indivually set after consultation and researching his needs.

We have been using Control-M from BMC for about seven years now, and we are very satisfied with its capabilities in the areas of workload automation and orchestration and enterprise integration. I'm sure we will continue to use Control-M and related products and supported APIs in the years ahead.
