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.

RunMyJobs

It is well-suited to our environment where we run SAP but also have multiple middle-ware applications. RunMyJobs is flexible enough to be able to invoke and orchestrate jobs originating in any of those environments, tying them together Our admins rely on their informational dashboards to ensure data flow in and out of our company is running smoothly as our cashflow depends on it.

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.

RunMyJobs

  • Support documentation - Some basic information not found and some is outdated.
  • Availability of support - Slow to respond.
  • Knowledge of initial support. Basic problems have to be forwarded to next level support.

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.

Using RMJ is pretty intuitive. Depending on your company's setup you may have multiple roles involved in the scheduling and monitoring of jobs

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.

Having evaluated and worked in AutoSys and Control-M, we've found RunMyJobs to be an overall superior product.
