Overall Satisfaction with Control-M

We use Control-M for enterprise workload automation across a number of platforms (z\OS, Windows, Linux, Unix). Application batches are integrated seamlessly. We also use a number of application plug-ins such as File Transfer, IBM Cognos, Java and Web Services. Control-M is integral to our ability to run a true 'lights out' 24x7 data centre whilst still providing 24x7 business availability and support.
  • Provides seamless cross-platform workload automation integration.
  • Provides integrated SFTP capability. No scripting or custom error checking required!
  • Control-M provides fully auditable, version controlled workload development and provides tools for users to collaborate on development.
  • Control-M provides excellent exception management allowing us to use our resources where they are needed most instead of monitoring workloads.
  • Control-M could provide improved dynamic workload management based on physical server resources.
  • Control-M for File Transfer could provide better diagnostic tools for troubleshooting connection errors.
  • Control-M has been integral to our 'lights out' strategy allowing us to automate all aspects of our 24x7 batch processing requirements without having to run expensive shift operations.
Control-M provides true cross-platform integration without duplication, including service impact management.
Control-M provides highly functional file transfer integration including pre and post processing command capabilities and centralised account management.
Control-M is a very flexible and scalable solution which would suit almost every workload automation need.
