Broadcom
This product has huge capacity to run millions of jobs per month, can serve to enterprise level of business. If client is looking for platform base solution which can be deployed on-prem or cloud base technologies then this solution works well. It has very good licensing mechanism which is based on number of agents, and there is no limitation of number of jobs run. So client has not to worry on limitation of jobs and can scale of the automation in the environment. This reduced the total cost of ownership of product. Self service automation feature can reduce the client automation cost significantly. it has good batch job coverages from Mainframe to Microservices.

Waypoint is very similar to teraform , it can run a ec2 machine, an ECS service, Azure containers, Google containers and many more , which is one of the most advantageous thing about waypoint . The team that we are working with has a hybrid customer based in multiple clouds like AWS, Azure and GCP.

1. Cost was the major factor without compromising the automation service which this product delivered. Other products are expensive and deliver the same outcome. 2. Limitation of job run, Broadcom Automic Automation allows to run unlimited jobs and helps to increase automation capability. 3. Number of automation packs available with no extra license cost. 4. Depth of coverage of technologies for batch job automation. 5. Required less number of hardware to achieve high availability.

As waypoint is developed by HashiCorp which is also a developer of teraform , the trust was already there . Moreover the simplicity of ease of access made our choice even more clearer against its competitors. The competitors were good but weren't able to compete with the versatility and suite of application and functionality provided by WAYPOINT.
