My advice would be to negotiate thoroughly on the price. On a scale from one to ten, I would give this solution a rating of eight.

AutoSys is out of line with the latest trends of the IT industry, like the quick searching and things like that. It requires special skills which you have to develop in your team in order to manage it. That said, it's an excellent product and will give you the functionalities that you need. I would rate this solution a six out of 10.

I would not say this is for a large shop, but for a small shop it is overpriced.

Consult onsite support for the first implementation. Errors made at the beginning can only be corrected with great effort afterwards.

Control-M acts as a single, centralized interface for monitoring and managing all batch processes, which is helpful because nothing gets left unattended since it is all visible in one place, and therefore can be addressed in a timely manner. I like that Control-M includes a proactive management that is extremely useful in the event of production failures. In addition, Control-M makes it easy to identify bottlenecks, using their Forecast feature along with production simulations. It also has a solid GUI that is capable of efficiently handling more than 80,000 jobs in a single day. In addition, the use of the alert system they offer makes it possible to act in a coordinated and efficient manner when solving problems. Their self-service feature is powerful, allowing jobs to be set up and available to users via the web. Another useful feature is the workload change manager, which provides developers with the ability to implement Control-M into the coding and design stages beforehand instead of after the fact. This is a huge time-saver because you are able to see results immediately without having to wait for a scheduler to make changes. One thing I find to be cumbersome about Control-M is enabling its secure mode, which could be the reason why some customers may be reluctant to adopt it. AutoSys Workload Automation is fast and easy to install and use. In terms of deployment, it is a great solution. Integration with SAP is great, too, and I have found that only minimal maintenance is necessary. I am satisfied with it because it has proven to be an excellent tool. The only thing that bothers me is I feel that the reporting and notifications could be slightly improved. Conclusion: Control-M and AutoSys Workload Automation have many varied capabilities. While Control-M supports file transfers and batch file executions and can run SQL queries or stored procedures, I think it may be unnecessary for smaller organizations or particular environments where backend automation or utilizing a large infrastructure isn’t crucial for an organization. Having said that, I personally decided on AutoSys Workload Automation. At the end of the day, what you choose will heavily depend on your specific organization’s needs.
