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.

From my few months of using the tool, I believe the tool would be best suited for Legal Ops (Contracting) & Procurement. Maybe even in competitive bidding (strategic sourcing: eg RFP & RFX). The tool may be less appropriate for Payment Processing/Collecting.

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.

Mitratech TAP Workflow Automation

  • Adding form fields can be quite tedious as it has to be added to every stage/relationship.
  • It's difficult to remember where a certain condition/formula sits.
  • I wish the workflow itself can be exported for presentation/demo/documentation purposes.
  • I wish there was a way for more than one admin to configure the tool at the same time.

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.

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.

Autodesk selected TAP because of its ability to handle more complex workflows. We vetted a lot of "light" automation solutions but wanted a tool that was flexible enough to handle our more extensive use cases.

Return on Investment

ActiveBatch Workload Automation

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

  • The tool hasn't rolled out yet so we cannot speculate the positive/negative impacts quite yet. However, I know it'll free up a lot of time for risk subject matter experts to gather vendor risk data for critical/high-risk vendors. From a negative standpoint, it may significantly delay the procurement process for purchases if due diligence is triggered and/or there's pushback from vendors.
