    Likelihood to Recommend

    Control-M

    The use of Control-M is recommended for the following circumstances:
    • Workload and batch processing automation.
    • Backend automation based processes
    • Silent execution of processes and no human intervention
    • Execution of workflows that are too complex for a human to handle
    • Massive operations on massive amounts of data
    • Invasive, with access to the data layer and business logic
    • Processes with focus on security, efficiency and reliability
    • When you want to predict the duration of each job and of the complete flow
    • In critical path management
    • For proactive alerting of deviations and possible job failures.
    • For workload simulation
    • Capability for resource automation

    Nintex Process Platform

    UI is generally excellent. We can incorporate outsider apparatuses like 365. As I mentioned before it's solid with robotizing and enhancing business cycles and work processes. All manual and tedious work processes are wiped out thus no requirement for a human hand. It might be a handful if you have it in your inventory.

    Pros

    Control-M

    • Control-M provides an easy-to-use and easy-to-interpret interface for users, with most of the screen options and field names being self-explanatory. The on-screen options provide for a full range of functionality for automating batch production requirements, with multiple options and flexibility.
    • The vendor provides Control-M a wide range of utilities for extracting information from the dataset and providing with a minimal amount of training required for use.
    • As the systems programmer for Control-M on the mainframe, the ease of installation is one of the nicest features. The installation is panel driven and can be used by a relatively inexperienced technician to install successfully in a matter of several hours.
    • Again, as the systems programmer, I appreciate the level of expertise of the technical support personnel. Over the past 20+ years, I have come to know them well and find them to be knowledgeable and willing to provide assistance for any and all queries.
    • The developers have always been willing to listen to requests for new functionality and enhancements to existing functionality and are working to have the same type of functionality across all platforms.
    • We are a large mainframe shop, still heavily dependent on mainframes to support and develop new software for the mainframe.
    • We have worked closely with BMC to participate in the beta testing program and have had the opportunity to have an impact on software development.

    Nintex Process Platform

    • Process mapping and designing of models, which perfectly issues an outline for swift actions.
    • Constant issuance of standard report, a formal way that improves the processes that enhance fruitful operations.
    • Automation of several actions, more so those with routine requirements and daily commitments.
    Joel Elliot | TrustRadius Reviewer

    Cons

    Control-M

    • The reporting provided with Control-M could have more functionality, Many users end up creating their own reporting based on the Control-M DB. I believe BMC are addressing this.
    • Within the Advanced File Transfer (AFT) it would be useful to have an integrated FT server and not rely on the underlying SSH.
    • All batch schedulers have issues with fully automating tasks in a Windows environment and Control-M is no exception. Userids and profiles are harder concepts to deal with in the Windows world but BMC are doing their best to address this and Control-M would be better at handling these scenarios than the alternative products.

    Nintex Process Platform

    • Nintex Process Platform is an overwhelming platform for staff unfamiliar with IT, for this reason only the IT team is in charge of using this tool.
    • Cloud costs can be very high.
    • Better training for users unfamiliar with IT can go a long way toward expanding the use of Nintex Process Platform.

    It is a great product plain and simple. We've had Control-M for 20+ years and the support that BMC Software provides is really second to none. There is always a situation that someone can think of where I have to say, "No we can't do that", however I'm confident that we've been able to meet and most of the time exceed our end user expectations with what the product can offer them.

    We are currently investigating which collaboration platform best suits our needs. Chances are that we move to SharePoint Online and then we're going to also consider the microsoft power platform (power automate and power apps) to develop forms and workflows. Aspecially the pricing model for the cloud is currently a blocking factor to go for the Nintex solution in the Cloud.

    Control-M's overall usability is very good because it is simple to use. Control-M SelfService is an easy tool to give to some of the users who want to use a web interface. The training curve for most users is very short and most of the functions are very simple to figure out.

    Based on the on-prem experience with this tool, I believe that they have a lot of potential to help the online version catch up to where the on-prem left off. Nintex developed their online version and it is not as fully formed or capable compared to the on-prem version, and the licensing model scales back what we would have liked to be an expansion or at least continuous improvement of existing flows. It is also not near as user friendly specifically to non-developers and has an uncanny similarity to Microsoft Flow in the online instance. Consistent with my reviews of the tool - I believe they have some good approaches to design thinking that, if translated well from on-prem to online, could make this a clear winner again.

    The Nintex Process Platform has never crashed or had any availability issues during my usage. However there was an issue that was of my own making that caused a slowdown of the system. I had set up a process to run once a day and check for employees on a list that had certain parameters selected, and for some reason that I had to troubleshoot, the process instead ran constantly, which filled the cache quickly. I ended up having to dismantle that process so the system didn't crash.

    Unlike any other process automation product out there. Not only is it a low-code, easy to use tool for building processes in environments like SharePoint or Salesforce, they have really started to expand their tool-set by offering tools to manage other things like process mapping, RPA, mobile,etc.

    Although the product is very stable there have been a few incidents when I needed support. I have worked with technicians from all around the globe because of the rolling support. This gives me the quickest support when I need it most in those early hours of the morning. The technicians I have worked with have been very knowledgeable and if necessary got help when needed.

    The Tier 1 support is horrible. It wasn't always this way. Previously their support was great, but lately when submitting support tickets they get lost, I have to ask for status updates and engage with the VP of support to get results.

    Alternatives Considered

    Control-M

    I have been using this product for so long and it works so well we have not had the need to evaluate other job schedulers. I have occasionally looked to see what was out there but I have seen anything so far that would require me to go so far as to evaluate the products.
    Dave Campbell | TrustRadius Reviewer

    Nintex Process Platform

    Basically, the whole Nintex platform is a very mature platform with lots of features compared to other products such as Kissflow. It works by allowing your organisation to use their imagination and plan approach to the workflow using an analysing tool that can then be shared across different customer groups for their feedback. It also helps to build relevant workflows by the use of automation through forms, and improvise these processes through a better reporting and analytics suite.

    The scalability is really bottlenecked by the imagination of the user. I was able to make processes for my own personal usage, making my daily tasks easier. I was also able to make processes that affected hundreds of employees, making large standardization and efficiency gains. So either way, the system is used the same way, and I was the limiting factor.

    Return on Investment

    Control-M

    • While I cannot share specific numbers I can say that Control-M has provided a level of scheduling and integration over the system it replaced that has increased productivity and increased reliably in our system. It has reduced the number of hours spent on monitoring and troubleshooting jobs, on a per job basis.
    Eugene LaRoche | TrustRadius Reviewer

    Nintex Process Platform

    • Nintex has saved the department many hours of work by allowing us to use simple forms and workflows and taking us away from spreadsheets and outdated databases.
    • Our audits used to take hours and our last audit took only 30 minutes, thanks to the tracking abilities we now have using Nintex forms.
    • Once I learned the best practices for setting up the processes, I was able to create forms & workflows that other people could update going forward so changes happen easily as things occur. An administrator is not needed, after going live.
