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.

Do you need to send a document to multiple people? Then you need Comindware Tracker to optimize your time. Your home life would not be great using Comindware tracker to optimize your schedule.That is really all that I can think of I am not the best with coming up with scenarios.

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.

Comindware Tracker

  • I don't have any particular dislikes about the software.
  • Sometimes it is difficult to get ahold of customer support but they seem to have stepped up their game lately.
  • Need more features as others workflow tracker. Though I think this is the best software.

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.

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.

Comindware Tracker has very helpful and friendly support staff and whenever we needed any guidance about the usage of tool, we got very prompt and professional answer. The one good thing about the support staff of Comindware Tracker is that, they are very familiar with the product and knowledgeable about the issues and their solutions. In addition to this, Comindware also has a strong and wide community support, too.

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.

There’s not a lot to write here. We used Excel-files, then gave a try to MS Project which is used in a different company department and quickly switched to Comindware Tracker as it turned to be incredibly useful for our team. I used Wufoo. It worked, but time after time I had hard time with its user interface and switched to Comindware Tracker after trial and never regreted.
