Overall Satisfaction with CA Workload Automation

CA Workload Automation is used schedule batch jobs across ERP applications (FSCM, HCM, EPM). It's used by the finance, supply chain, and HR departments. It is a one stop for reviewing all batch job's statuses and manage from the application. These days we are also using Autosys to invoice OIC integrations and add dependencies with existing jobs. Autosys is a great tool to work with!
  • All batch jobs can be monitored from one dashboard.
  • Provides detailed error logs.
  • We have developed packages to invoke OIC integrations through Autosys.
  • Notifications is a good feature when job fails or runs beyond cutoff time.
  • Doesn't sort out jobs within the box.
  • Drag and drop feature will help in expediting Autosys job development.
  • Reduces effort of support analysts in monitoring batch jobs.
  • Helps in quickly fixing and restarting jobs.
  • Notification feature helps in quickly attending to the problem and fixing it.
Delivered PeopleSoft Process scheduler doesn't provide one stop to review all batch jobs and dependencies. Also, it doesn't provide graphical representation of all jobs. In contrast, Autosys provides nice graphical interface of all jobs and it's status. Autosys allows to review the dependencies and failures all in one common place.
I love this product!!

If batch jobs are heavily used then this product is highly recommended since it maintains dependencies between jobs, notifies if there are any failures, and puts the next batches on hold if previous dependent jobs fails.
