Please share with the community what you think needs improvement with Automic Continuous Delivery Automation.
What are its weaknesses? What would you like to see changed in a future version?
The initial setup can be simplified. It's a bit complex. The stability of the solution can be improved.
The cut/paste translation can be improved. I've found that sometimes it's difficult to copy exactly between different platforms. Sometimes it takes some manual changes. The solution's implementation processes could be simplified. File transfer is not very efficient. It takes a bit longer than some other methods and when you send the file from one platform to another, especially from the mainframe, the results consumption is quite high compared to other methods. There needs to be better error handling and error descriptions. It should be more clear what the errors are and what we can do to fix them. Limitations in character conversions - sometimes special characters are translated differently comparing to regular FTP transfer, even if the same code page definitions are used. It would be useful to prepare manual and instruction on possible conversion problem solvings and extended settings.
