Blog Post It's Time to Replace Your CA Automic Workload Automation

Explore why it's time to replace CA Automic Workload Automation (WLA) and put a cloud-native, vendor-agnostic, web-based automation solution in place.


Broadcom's acquisition of CA Technologies has had a profound impact on the quality of its products and its customer support. This should come as no surprise—business acquisitions, no matter how well they are planned, often result in some level of disruption and inconsistency. Whether or not you as a customer have experienced such a disruption, it is always prudent during times of change to examine the best alternatives to your current workload automation solution (WLA). You never know when you may need to seriously consider an alternative. 

Why Switch? 

When it comes to their IT environments, major organizations should put stability and security at the top of their list during software procurement. Stability, in this case, refers to the reliability and robustness of the given product. Security refers to the software's ability to meet and maintain security compliance standards as it performs its regular workload. When a software's performance in one of these two areas comes into question, it is important for users to re-evaluate whether that software still reliably supports their company's mission and vision. 

CA Automic has now been acquired for the second time (it was originally an Oracle product, acquired by CA Technologies in 2016). Each time the software has been acquired, an irreversible disturbance has occurred to the quality of customer care. For users of CA Automic, stability and security are key factors, but so is customer support. With best-in-class customer support and an active and thriving user community, Stonebranch software may be just the alternative Workload Automation solution you have been looking for.
