Very easy implementation, good integration capabilities, and very stable

What is our primary use case?

We have a lot of projects with many companies, mostly in México. There are two main companies in the retail sector. The clients use this solution for their process orchestration.

Pros and Cons

  • "The solution has the power to reduce resources, which is good for business. It is constantly updated to remain compatible with new technologies such as Amazon, Azure, and Google Cloud. It's very easy to take advantage of the compatibilities."
  • "The infrastructure could be improved."
  • "Right now, Control-M is the leader in EMA analysis, which is similar to Gartner. However, clients want to invest in a strong technology, and therefore this product needs to keep up with the high expectations set for it."

What other advice do I have?

We're BMC partners. We have a business relationship with the solution. While we typically handle on-premises deployments, we also deal with the cloud. I would recommend the solution. My recommendation is based on the stability, the constant evolution, and the capabilities of the integration with other software. The implementation is easy. It's easy to use and easy to implement then it's worth the expenditure. Overall, I would rate the solution ten out of ten. We've been very happy with it.
