ActiveBatch

ActiveBatch is an excellent tool to distribute to multiple teams across the organization, allowing developers, application support, business units as well as mangers to create the tasks they need and maintain their configurations, without having to wait on a central point of support.

Operations Orchestration

For our business, this system is really THE system. We use it for the management of almost all aspects of a member's account. I honestly cannot think of something that it cannot do.

Cons

  • The Oracle connectivity and error detection is challenging and doesn't always work for us.

Alternatives Considered

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.

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.

  • If time is money, the time saved by using this all-in-one product has certainly saved time AND money.
