Broadcom AutoSys Workload Automation's Future is Uncertain

If your business relies on CA Workload Automation AE (AutoSys®) for job scheduling, it’s at risk. Broadcom’s acquisition of CA Technologies means the future of AutoSys – and any workflow that it automates – is uncertain. AutoSys looks to be on borrowed time. And the prospects of new functionality to improve its capabilities look remote.

The signs aren’t promising for AutoSys customers:

  • Broadcom has laid off 40% of CA’s US support staff
  • Professional services have been outsourced
  • Innovation budgets have been reduced by more than half

It can be integrated with nearly every business system and application, can be scaled as needed and is able to function with minimal human intervention.

Frequently Asked Questions

What does AutoSys do?

AutoSys is an automated job management tool that provides scheduling and monitoring capabilities for Batch Processes executed in the AutoSys environment. AutoSys was originally known as Unicenter AutoSys when it was first developed in the early 1990s, before changing to AutoSys Workload Automation during subsequent acquisitions by Platinum, CA and Broadcom. AutoSys installations can be complex and the software is known to have a heavy footprint. As a result, many organizations have shifted towards cloud-based or cloud-native workload automation solutions such as Redwood. See what you can achieve with Redwood.

Is it easy to migrate to an AutoSys Alternative?

Yes, many workload automation vendors make it easy to migrate to their solutions. For example, Redwood uses a fine-tuned methodology to streamline migrations, with team members working alongside customers to ensure a smooth onboarding. Onboarding is often supplemented with additional services such as 24/7 in-house support, periodic health checks to maintain system health and to proactively address future issues, as well as on-demand training courses to make sure IT teams can expand their skills and expertise in order to meet new business challenges. See what you can achieve with Redwood.

What is workload automation software?

Workload automation is a type of software that automates the IT tasks to support a business process. For example, a retailer needs to transfer information about purchases from physical and online stores to a database. The ERP uses that data to coordinate restocking and reorders at the warehouse, and finance applications update accounting records and manage payments to vendors. Business processes like this are designed, scheduled and monitored through workload automation. Discover the wide range of use cases for Redwood’s workload automation platform.
