Broadcom Automic Automation we use for batch job automation. Customer has numerous automation problem such as multiple job dependencies where one job has to finish successfully to start the other job. Automic automation capabilities are fantastic to address this kind of requirements. We use automic to execute 1 Million jobs per month. Scheduling such a high scale of jobs was not an easy task. Automic is handling such a huge load easily whithout any glitch. User interface is very intuitive support easily for batch job monitoring team and automic administrator.

  • Broadcom Automic Automation as SAAS service , It is available on containers but it should be full SAAS as many of customers are looking full SAAS of Automic
  • FTP Solution for file transfer this capability is lacking with product, as of now only agent to agent file can be transferred, there should should be FTM management function available to handle files from out side of data center.
  • UI enhancement , looks older view of dashboard UI need more advance dashboarding capability
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.
  • Hardware independent and built-in high availability provides active-active mode of operations
  • Multi tenancy and cloud hosting and supports containers
  • Unlimited scalability of jobs, No limitation of jobs
  • Built-in data base so no need extra license

We have been using Broadcom Automic Automation for over 15 years. Initially, it was mainly used in the automation of DWH/BI and controlling applications as well as in the area of managed file transfer. Then it was also used for the pre- and post-processing of application deployments. Broadcom Automic Automation has also been used to control SAP applications for about 5 years. We are currently implementing the additional solution Automic System Copy. For approximately 3 years, Broadcom Automic Automation has also been the backbone for our self-implemented "Software Defined Infrastructure" solution.
  • Wide range of internal functions
  • Many interfaces (incoming and outgoing)
  • Modern, web-based user interface
  • Strong roadmap with topics such as containerisation and AI
  • High throughput possible (> 1 million executions per day)
  • Support. Many companies, at least in Europe, now get support from resellers.
  • The user interface is actually not well suited for non-technical users.
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.
  • Stability
  • Performance
  • Large number of interfaces

Depending on the organisation and requirements, you need different numbers of staff with different skills. First, you need people to deploy and administer the Broadcom Automic Automation platform. Then you need people with a 'developer mindset' to design the workflows in Broadcom Automic Automation. These employees can either work in a central team or distributed in the individual departments. And then you need staff for monitoring and operating, which can be done centrally in a control centre or departmentally.
  • Workload Automation for Unix-/Linux-, Windows- and SAP-based applications
  • Orchestration of the provisioning process for Software Defined Infrastructure
  • We see Automic Automation Platform also an Integration Platform which can connect different services
  • Software Deployment

Automic is a very strong Automation Platform which enable us to implement user requirements quickly.

  • Improved SAP automation thereby giving good returns.
  • Provides mail integration which further widens automation scope and profits.
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.

To simplify redundant tasks, our organization utilized Automic One Automation Platform (formerly CA Automic Automation Platform) through multiple environments. From restarts of application servers to specific jobs that need to be executed routinely, Automic plays an integral part in our infrastructure. Our business dictates 24/7 support, and the Automic One Automation Platform (formerly CA Automic Automation Platform) helps fulfill what would typically be very manual operational tasks.
  • Job execution
  • Job chaining
  • User interface was clunky
  • Upgrades are not particularly easy
If you have an infrastructure with complex security constraints, multi-users, multi-environment, then Automic One Automation Platform (formerly CA Automic Automation Platform) is an excellent tool for execution automation. We use it primarily on-prem, and it works well in our environment. I would think a cloud solution maybe a little more challenging to implement. But for routine scheduling of menial tasks Automic One Automation Platform (formerly CA Automic Automation Platform) is a reliable product.
