If you'll be working with 3 or more integration services you might need to use Mule.

Control-M

Control-M makes a lot of sense if you need cross-platform scheduling and require verifiable task management (not the "hit and hope" approach of the Windows Task Scheduler or cron). Tying your operational tasks together on one screen makes sense in most modern enterprises. The fact that Control-M is the market leader and yet the vendor is, if anything, increasing the rate of development tells you all you need to know.

However, Control-M is a high-end solution and if your batch requirements are low (say below 200 tasks/jobs) and those tasks are not critical to your enterprise then maybe consider alternatives. Also, if your Agent platforms are not supported by Control-M (BMC can provide a list but very few OS are not included) then Control-M would be more difficult (but not impossible) to implement.

Pros

Anypoint Platform

  • If you are working with 3 or more services to integrate with a different data source, you'll be able to see the benefits of using Mule.
  • In terms of usability, you can develop an API even not fluent in any programming languages.
  • Mule also provides a lightweight Java-based enterprise service bus.

Control-M

  • 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

Anypoint Platform

  • In dataweave mapping you have to be sure to map fields inserting right names. There is not provided a control mechanism for verifying it
  • It is not easy to structure a process hierarchy because you have to develop flows and sub flows in the same xml configuration files.
  • I would like to interact with Mulesoft support directly from the design environment.

Control-M

  • One feature that I feel needs some improvement is the ability to create a graphical flow chart of jobs and be able to print it and look nice.

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.

Control-M's overall usability is very good because it is simple to use. Control-M SelfService is an easy tool to give to some of the users who want to use a web interface. The training curve for most users is very short and most of the functions are very simple to figure out.

Control-M

TWS was part of our initial proof of concept and product review. Control-M was able to do everything we asked. At the time TWS was unable to provide the interface that we needed. We chose Control-M and have been pleased ever since.

Control-M

  • Positive impact: Processes our batch jobs.
  • The integration with x-Matters has tremendously reduced the notification time when a job fails. Very helpful when multiple application batches are running at same time.
