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.

XL release fits very well when you need cross-team coordination in a release process where you want to coordinate an alpha or beta program with marketing as part of a major release process.

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.

XL release is simpler to configure and deploy to the organization than other change management platforms I have used. That simplicity has minor drawbacks requiring you to fit into a limited set of control methods but that exercise helped us simplify a needlessly onerous process.
