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.

  • Projects on a scale from 2-50+ people are most well served by this, after a project becomes really big, tracing changes in a build/project become a bit unmanageable and the tracing would be difficult even with GitLabs versioning
  • A well designed and easily navigable UI helps everyone understand what's going on, even if they are not super familiar with coding or changes to the code
  • Wide use amongst other companies allows for easy crossover work

GitLab

  • It uses the well-known Git language to communicate with, which is very popular
  • The interface is slick and easy to get used to
  • They are very transparant in their security issues
  • Updating the software from the command line is the easiest I have come across

Cons

Broadcom Automic Automation (formerly CA Automic Automation Platform)

  • User interface was clunky
  • Upgrades are not particularly easy
Gregory Hanson | TrustRadius Reviewer

GitLab

  • GitLab could improve some of the confusion around how permissions work (sometimes unclear why one user can do an action, but not another)
  • GitLab should provide a way to rerun a merge pipeline, without rerunning the original Merge Request pipeline
  • When jobs fail, it would be awesome if every user could see the information on the runner and the versions of the software it is running on (to better debug the issue)

Gitlab is the best in its segment. They have a free version, they have open-source software, they provide a good service with their SaaS product, they are a fully-remote company since the beginning (which means they are fully distributed and have forward-thinking IMO). I would certainly recommend them to everyone.

The web console management is superior and I would have given Gitlab a 10, but sometimes it is hard to find documentation about a configuration setting in the gitlab.rb configuration file. As we move everything to code that means moving our CVS tools to code as well - and Gitlab to code. The usability of Gitlab from the end user's perspective is superior and the usability from the operations team is very good and getting better but there could be a little improvement in the gitlab.rb config file layout and documentation.

The Automic One Automation Platform (formerly CA Automic Automation Platform) is used to perform Information Technology Process Automation (ITPA). This tool offers enormous functionalities that can be used to automate applications which allow remote function calls and APIs. It works well with mail objects. This tool is primarily used to automate SAP application which is an enterprise resource planning tool.

At this point, I do not have much experience with Gitlab support as I have never had to engage them. They have documentation that is helpful, not quite as extensive as other documentation, but helpful nonetheless. They also seem to be relatively responsive on social media platforms (twitter) and really thrived when GitHub was acquired by Microsoft

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.

The main feature I dislike in Asana is its lack of functions for recurrent tasks. My work demands different routines every week and month, so it was a little bit difficult to set those up. Whereas Gitlab solved all those problems because it’s easy to use and easy to understand.

Return on Investment

Broadcom Automic Automation (formerly CA Automic Automation Platform)

  • Hours of server operations given over to end-users.
  • Single pipelines for job plan execution reduced the operational overhead.
Gregory Hanson | TrustRadius Reviewer

GitLab

  • The community version is free and can be run as a container. This has significantly reduced the cost to get started with the app.
  • The integrated CICD system is allowing development teams to increase their development speed as code is automatically tested and built when new versions are committed.
