Orchestrate any on-premises or cloud application, service, or server with Redwood’s SaaS-based automation.
See how you can advance your workload automation with Redwood
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 prospect of having Broadcom add new functionality to improve its capabilities looks remote.
The signs aren’t promising for AutoSys customers:
You need a modern workload automation solution to replace CA AutoSys and take you into the future. Redwood’s SaaS workload automation software overcomes the limitations of legacy schedulers like AutoSys. It can be integrated with nearly every enterprise system and application, can be scaled as needed, and is able to function with minimal human intervention. Redwood’s process automation and orchestration software enables greater collaboration and frees your staff from managing repetitive manual tasks with outdated technology.
While CA AutoSys workload automation becomes more obsolete due to a lack of investment, the capabilities of Redwood’s automation are five years ahead of any other job scheduler or IT automation tool available. It’s the next generation of secure and scalable workload automation and orchestration.
Redwood’s migration program provides a seamless upgrade for organizations that want to expand their automation capabilities from their current scheduling or workload automation tool. We’ve successfully moved customers away from legacy job scheduling systems from Broadcom/CA, ActiveBatch, BMC, IBM and Tidal for nearly three decades. It’s time to leave the limitations and uncertainty of AutoSys behind.
Redwood offers the world’s only true SaaS solution for workload automation and job scheduling. Consistent leadership, dedication, and investment have enabled us to stay ahead of any other automation technology.

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.
Below you will find options for Autosys alternatives:
The main difference between AutoSys and the alternatives is the level of complexity and range of features. AutoSys is generally considered to be more complex and feature-rich, while its alternatives can be simpler and more focused on basic scheduling needs.

Workload automation is a type of software that automates IT operations and 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.
CA and Autosys should not be considered as two separate things. CA is a company, Computer Associates, that develops and maintains the AutoSys software for job scheduling under the Broadcom company umbrella.
