Anypoint Platform

Any realtime integrations are ideal use cases for Anypoint platform. Batch processes are not appropriate for Anypoint platform.

Control-M

For our purposes, it is well suited. The learning curve for new users to develop a basic level of competence is relatively easy to accomplish. While the vendor has introduced many nice features since we started using the product (BIM and Forecast to name two that I would like to see our users take more advantage of), the basic product has remained readily accessible for users.

  • Dependencies between the jobs of various tools/technologies. We run Informatica, .Net, SAS, SQL - all kinds of jobs and Control-M works very well with each kind of job.
  • Email alerting facility after completion, failure; ability to retry jobs.
  • Ability to run a job multiple times a day.

Cons

  • The license is very expensive (for a big organization, it is very recommended to have an Enterprise License)
  • In a data flow, only one object contains all activities data (input/output)
  • Sometimes we have to write xml because the graphical designer of flows is not responsive.

  • Flexible tasks or jobs pricing charges.
  • Version upgrade should be made as simple as possible as it becomes overwhelming.
  • RFE (Request for Enhancements) should be prioritized.

It is a great product plain and simple. We've had Control-M for 20+ years and the support that BMC Software provides is really second to none. There is always a situation that someone can think of where I have to say, "No we can't do that", however I'm confident that we've been able to meet and most of the time exceed our end user expectations with what the product can offer them.

I've been a Control-M admin for a long time so I think its usability deserves a 10. I would imagine a brand new user could be overwhelmed but after a short time would find the interface easy and intuitive to use. I also give it a 10 because I've supported other scheduling packages such as TWS and Tidal that (at the time) were not near as user friendly as Control-M.

For the 16 years that I have supported Control-M, their support has always been fantastic. They are very responsive and typically either solve the issue or answer the question in a matter of one or two emails or phone calls. For any high severity type problems, team members 'swarm' the case and you may get multiple technicians assisting you at the same time. Support also as they say "follows the sun" so whenever you speak to someone, it is their daylight hours and you are not waiting for someone to fully wake up to provide support.

Alternatives Considered

We moved from an in-house product to Control-M. Obviously an in-house product is going to be easier to use that something off the shelf because it was written for our environment. The problem was a team of analysts had to be maintained to support it which the company was unable to do. So the previous software was more efficient and easier to use. But that was not considered when the change was made.

If there were other products consider I would not know.

Return on Investment

  • Reduced Development Cost
No photo available
  • We have been able to use our investments in Control-M to start on a project to replace our other 2 scheduling packages. The ROI for doing this is very favorable for our company.
  • The pricing model used by BMC (task based) has allowed us to role out this conversion on schedule by schedule basis, as opposed to a server by server conversion.
