Overall Satisfaction with Control-M

Control-M gives us that oversight of business critical jobs that using simpler scheduling mechanisms don't provide. Its simplicity to use this overview allows us to quickly see where things have gone wrong and more importantly stop/resolve the issue before any subsequent processing is done. Not allowing further processing is a great advantage as it stops further data processing, reduces cost and time of unpicking plus gives customers the confidence that the data they are getting has been processed correctly. Having the tool means we don't have to spend many hours coding 'in-house solutions '. All in all this is a great tool with a quick return on investment in many areas.
  • Time - does a lot of the work for us when things go wrong and we can pinpoint where the problem was - Reduced cycle time!
  • Confidence - Gives end users the confidence data is CORRECTLY processed.
  • Easy to use - Great interface and reduces the errors common using other command line schedulers.
  • Reduced ongoing costs - Allows us to concentrate on the actual job with out constantly writing our own monitoring tools.
  • JAVA/Database API to allow tickets to be raised in to other in-house systems.
  • Great processing to look inside the content of batches to correct some common/frequent problems and then allow processing to continue.
  • Positive - Reduced effort and costs of in-house developed software that would have been needed if we didn't use Control-M.
  • Positive - Allows the team to concentrate on the actual job rather than lots of reactive monitoring of scripts. Greater customer satisfaction results.
  • cron and Java Reporting Engine
Control- M is much more of a polished tool with many benefits and useful features above the standard tools.
Control-M is great for large data processing activities and processes.
