Broadcom Automic Automation (formerly CA Automic Automation Platform)

The heart of Broadcom Automic Automation, the so-called Automation Engine, can be used for orchestration and as a process engine for a wide variety of purposes, such as workload automation, software deployment (release automation), and event-driven automation. I see the user interface as a disadvantage, as it is more geared towards technical users.

It was very good to use in small scale projects. Considering the high end projects with many instances and multi-platform architectures, it is better to test before the application is deployed. I think few of the questions can be general - who are the system users and what size is the application focussing on? How much resources are required? Will the application require any additional services?

  • Though it is good and easy for developers, it lacks operational activities and monitoring tools.

Alternatives Considered

Broadcom Automic Automation (formerly CA Automic Automation Platform)

Since other tools are all user interface based, they are prone to errors in terms of application exception, and the dependencies are comparatively higher for the automation to run successfully. This is not the case with the Automic One Automation Platform (formerly CA Automic Automation Platform) as the contact with application happens at the network layer and does not depend on the user interface of the application.

Primarily because it used to have a good free tier earlier, which it does not anymore. It's simple, and things are available to use. Compared to it's competitors, it does has less features, but that kind of acts in its favor. That adds to the simplicity, and ease of use for a new user.
