It is currently being used across a department with access to a certain set of applications and is used to see the performance of the servers.
  • Instrumentation of backend servers.
  • Analyzing the performance of these servers.
  • Helping users with network utilization, CPU utilization details, etc.
  • Monitoring of front-end websites.
  • More utilization insights if possible.
  • Customer service via chat in the future if possible.
Suitable for utilization of backend servers, not currently perfectly suitable for front-end performance monitoring.

We are using this application to manage our workload (and schedule jobs) for our Back Office Operations. Jobs have been scheduled, which includes shell scripts, db procedures, batch jobs, integration with Informatica and Big Data Hadoop. Views and alerts have been setup for our NOC to monitor these jobs 24/7. Currently being used by IT Operations and Application Team.
  • Workload can be scheduled across different Platforms.
  • Support for Hadoop. Integration with Informatica Dataware house application.
  • The latest version has a web interface which is very impressive.
  • Low overheads from administration standpoint.
  • Better Reporting and Troubleshooting of why some jobs are failing.
Good for monitoring in a heterogeneous environment, and well suited for cross platform support. Easy to upgrade and migrate data. There is less overhead to manage the application.

CA Workload Automation is reliable and easy to use

CA Workload Automation is being across our entire Technology department to manage the operations of multiple applications of multiple environments. CA Workload Automation helps the business by reducing job failures, increases transparency into applications and the issues that it creates and most importantly, helps the firm by meeting SLA requirements more consistently.
  • CA Workload Automation manages and customizes job scheduling very well.
  • CA Workload Automation is very easy to learn and start using. The GUI design is very simple and makes it easy for first time users to setup their jobs, parameters and conditions.
  • CA Workload Automation supports the major operating systems, Oracle applications and supports growing volume of workloads quite well.
  • CA Workload Automation reduces time to process workloads and flexible to support multiple environments which is critical for testing, maintenance and operations in for any Technology group.
  • Even though the CA Workload Automation GUI is simple and easy to use, it looks outdated and has limited features such as customizing dashboards and saving particular user settings.
  • CA Workload Automation lacks performance and is often slow to edit jobs or to refresh screens and sometimes requires admin to restart service agents for background processes.
  • I would like to see CA Workload Automation in one screen with all the information the user wants to see and have this customized and saved for every user. Rather than having to build a view and search criteria for every new job that is added.
  • I would like a feature or configuration that you can setup different types of notifications for job failures such as text message with different levels of severity.
CA Workload Automation is well suited for firms having to manage and monitor multiple applications operating in multiple environments. and having SLA requirements. CA Workload Automation is less appropriate and not cost-effective for non-critical applications and/or jobs. CA Workload Automation is ideal for companies that require reliable and stable Production support for their business critical jobs to finish on time.
