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.

We use SharePoint to manage over 100 legal litigation cases. We also use SharePoint for all of our internal billing and time keeping. There is great need for different SharePoint sites to be able to have access to other lists and data sources. List Actions provides an easy-to-use interface that we use to implement file copies between sites, workflow tracking of medical records through our medical collections department, send out medical record requests using the enhanced SendMail options. We have automated many tasks that used to take up considerable time and were error-prone. Having the logic of a workflow with all the steps carried out with a click of a button is great. Plus it is very fast.

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.

Lightning Tools List Actions Screenshots

Screenshot of SHAREPOINT LIST ACTION BUTTONS
Add action buttons to your SharePoint list like this Expense Approval button. The button performs multiple actions on the SharePoint list items such as modifying the Approved field to Yes, Sending an email notification to the Expense Claimant, and Reloading the page. The Line Manager can easily select multiple items and approve them all in one click, rather than visit each item individually.Screenshot of ADDING SHAREPOINT LIST ACTION BUTTONS
SharePoint List Action buttons can be created quickly and easily. There is no coding experience required, and List Owners or Designers can create the buttons and actions within the context of the list itself.  Action buttons can also be configured to display only to the user with the rights to perform the action.Screenshot of BUILDING A SERIES OF LIST ACTIONS
Actions that can be configured include Updating field values with simple or complex expressions, sending emails, adding list items, creating list items or folders, running custom script, and calling other workflows.
