Overall Satisfaction with Control-M

Control-M is utilized by the IT department for scheduling batch processing and other recurring tasks.
  • Control-M is an excellent Workload Automation tool and has nearly unlimited options for scheduling tasks. This provides great flexibility in balancing workloads.
  • Sometimes too many options make it difficult to find a simple way to get the task done. Often it takes longer to locate or decide on a function than it does to implement it.
  • The ROI on Control-M has been beneficial for business. Implementing Control-M has freed up resources to concentrate on other corporate initiatives.
  • job2do
The only other non-os provided distributed system scheduler I have used is job2do. Control-M runs circles around that software - there is really no comparison to be had.
I feel that Control-M is best suited for scheduling a large number of tasks and where growth is expected. It can be overkill for smaller job counts or where growth is not expected.
