ActiveBatch Workload Automation is best in large IT landscapes with a lot of business processes but less so in smaller organisations I believe. I think it is too complex for IT department that uses less than 50 objects. Because then the profit doesn't weighed the learning time.

ActiveBatch Workload Automation is a super robust application, it is suitable for almost anything, it has so many extensions into different applications such as VMware, Amazon EC2, Azure, Power Shell and many others. If it's digital, ActiveBatch Workload Automation can probably create an automated process solution.

I can only speak for our environment, but it has allowed us to get away from the unfriendly Informatica PowerCenter workflow schedule. And coordination of Informatica/Tableau/ICEDQ has been a BIG help to us. We have not tried to drill down to the Informatica session-level of detail, just stayed with running workflows. The session-level logic seemed complicated.

Any place one can find a task that is performed repeatedly - either on a schedule, or in response to a triggering state (i.e. a file being created in a specific folder) - that task is at least a good candidate for ActiveBatch [Workload] Automation to be used. Repeating FTP jobs, regular SQL tasks or maintenance, regular file system maintenance - all can likely be taken out of the hands of employees, freeing up time for less repetitive tasks.

ActiveBatch [Workload Automation] is not appropriate for any task which requires flexible judgment - it isn't an AI engine.

ActiveBatch [Workload Automation] also requires at least two servers - a manager ("Scheduler") and at least one worker ("Agent") - thus it is not a good choice for a very small company without those resources available. It is also somewhat costly - not in terms of value, but possibly beyond the reasonable budget of a small company or non-profit with thin profit margins where the investment may outweigh the return.

ActiveBatch [Workload Automation] works great for any type of repeatable task, and has several methods of initiating jobs that can be applicable for any environment. In our experience we have yet to find a scenario that needed automation that could not be accomplished via ActiveBatch [Workload Automation]. However, if the number of automated job needs is small, or if they are very simple jobs then ActiveBatch [Workload Automation] might be overkill in those types of situations.

If it did the things it says it can, it would be an incredibly powerful and essential tool. Being able to manage all of our scripts in one place, as well as which machines they run against and their schedules would have been amazing. The builder was also easy to use for setting things up; again if they actually did anything once set up.

It's great for basic tasks or tasks that need to run in a certain sequence. Especially import/export jobs, where the next step can only work when the previous job has completed. It does have some issues where a tasks may run into an error (file location not available) and may not always prevent itself from continuing to run the job.

ActiveBatch is an excellent tool to distribute to multiple teams across the organization, allowing developers, application support, business units as well as mangers to create the tasks they need and maintain their configurations, without having to wait on a central point of support.

I used to work in a company that only used SQL Server Agent to handle imports and exports of ETL data. ActiveBatch is far more powerful and easy to use, so I definitely would recommend it. I would think of three questions: (1) Do you handle a large volume of exports and imports in a given week? (2) Do you need a lot of configurable options, such as with scheduling? (3) Do you utilize a variety of ETL processing tools (such as GlobalScape EFT and Microsoft SSIS) but want one tool to work with them all? If yes to those questions, then ActiveBatch would well fit the bill for you then.
