ActiveBatch Workload Automation

I used to work in a company that only used SQL Server Agent to handle imports and exports of ETL data. ActiveBatch is far more powerful and easy to use, so I definitely would recommend it. I would think of three questions: (1) Do you handle a large volume of exports and imports in a given week? (2) Do you need a lot of configurable options, such as with scheduling? (3) Do you utilize a variety of ETL processing tools (such as GlobalScape EFT and Microsoft SSIS) but want one tool to work with them all? If yes to those questions, then ActiveBatch would well fit the bill for you then.

Originally we used it as a guide for a workflow and it was amazing. As I stated earlier, we currently use it to decimate status based on tasks, great. We tried to use it as more of a Project Management platform and it wasn't really the best, but it isn't made for that either. Then again, using Microsoft Project can be linked to it to communicate the milestones.

Cons

ActiveBatch Workload Automation

  • The manual could provide more examples of how to create certain jobs, otherwise you will need to check the site or call support to aid with creation.
  • Dashboard presentation could be worked on, to help present an overview for management.

Agiloft Custom Workflow/BPM

  • Reporting - If reporting is important, you may consider another platform like Tableau which can be fed from Agiloft
  • Sorry, just reporting

ActiveBatch's usability is where it shines. It is pretty straight-forward to learn and administer. Our engineers like it because you can use a GUI to manage it or leverage the command line & api's. You can also create templates or clone existing "jobs" so you don't have to recreate the wheel. It is easy to chain jobs together to make them run in a specific sequence as well.

As with our brains, we only use 10% of its capability. It can be as complex as you want it to be or as simple. The training requirements to use it have been minimal depending on the application. This is really a reflection as to how the workflow was configured

We have been pretty happy with ActiveBatch support so far. Luckily, we have not had any major issues with it - so we haven't logged a lot of support tickets. The response time to tickets is about average and the level of expertise of the support engineers seems about average as well. Our sales team has been helpful in getting faster responses when necessary as well.

Alternatives Considered

ActiveBatch Workload Automation

N/A - It was already in place when I was on the scene, but like I said earlier it is much more powerful than SQL Server Agent and probably anything we would've come up with from scratch using .Net. However if your needs are small and traffic is light, then maybe SQL Server Agent or something smaller and less powerful (and less expensive) than ActiveBatch would work just fine.

We evaluated a couple of products and found that they were either unable to create the workflow that we needed and lacked support. But to be fair, we evaluated the previous generation of Intellect.

Return on Investment

  • I have not been involved in the purchase or contract negotiation of our Active Batch purchase, therefore am unable to comment on the ROI.
