Our primary use case of this solution is to keep track of our help desk tickets.

We use this solution for automating workloads across traditional data centers, the cloud, SaaS offerings, and various other Enterprise software packages. It is allowing developers and product owners to create complex workflows that may encompass several different products or technologies and have it all visible, monitored, and managed from one place.

We use this solution for enterprise workload automation in the financial industry. We schedule and monitor hundreds of business-critical processes. We also leverage the Managed File Transfer capabilities of Control-M to handle our file transfers securely & efficiently. Most of our tasks also deal with databases, and Control-M's purpose-built module for the databases comes in very handy when handling database components. It adds value with its capability to execute tasks natively and bring more information to the output. The BIM feature is used to monitor the important set of jobs as a service and to proactively alert operations when it sees that some jobs in the critical path are failed or delayed. This helps a lot in maintaining our SLAs efficiently.

We use this solution to automate batch processing, create automated workflows to support various applications, and integrate various endpoints in the workflow to support business processes. File transfer between our company and partner is critical for us. MFT has provided this solution and we are now using MFT for internal and external file transfers.

We use it for our job automation, running jobs daily, monthly, and annually. So, it is all automation.

We do scheduling of tasks and jobs in Control-M. The company has had the product for over 25 years.

It automates operations for all parts of the company. There isn't a part of the company that doesn't have jobs scheduled for Control-M.

We use it to handle most of our batch processing and all of the transactions that we do on a daily basis. It's a large financial institution which handles quite a bit of processing on an individual basis, and we both mainframe and distribute it.

We use it to schedule nightly batch jobs. We also have jobs that run during the day on a cyclic basis to provide up-to-date, real-time information for the company. I'm also pretty much focused on keeping things going. I'm the only scheduler at the company. We have about 4000 jobs in the daily schedule with around 42,000 iterations of jobs.

We have used Control-M mostly as a file transfer and in conjunction with Hadoop.

Relatively small setup for ETL jobs only. We do not use Control-M for enterprise-wide scheduling and automation.
