Eliminate the Drawbacks of your CA 7 Workload Automation Solution and Achieve Maximum Acceleration
Universal Automation Center had precisely the functionality and capabilities we were looking for in a workload automation solution. The price offered tremendous value and the in-house knowledge at Stonebranch with regards to transitioning from CA Workload Automation was an additional benefit.

Lands' End smart transition to Universal Automation Center
We provide a proven methodology for the transition of workload management systems, such as CA Workload Automation tools into our 21st century workload automation engine Universal Automation Center (UAC). Our methodology (7 Steps of Transition) has been developed and enhanced over the last decade for successful transitions from any scheduling engine to the Stonebranch UAC.
During a typical transition project, we implement the Universal Automation Center without a shutdown of your running CA scheduling solution. Over the years, the methodology has been optimized for the needs of UAC and has proven very successful, with transitions by more than 250+ clients worldwide, including such well-known and respected companies as QVC, GuideOne Insurance, and Lands‘ End, who are featured in this case study.
The center of all transition approaches is the Stonebranch Transition Engine, a rule-based utility reading the current job database. Based on customer-specific migration rules, it creates new definitions which are used to automatically transform your jobs, tasks and scheduling definitions into Stonebranch UAC.
As part of our initial analysis, we provide a detailed statement of work describing all efforts required for the transition of your existing solution, including resource definitions and scope of the migration, allowing a fact-based go/no-go decision for each unique transition project.
Start this seamless transition now for a smarter and easier way to manage and orchestrate your processes and workloads.
Transition Roadmap - The Seven Steps
1. Initiate and Setup
Project definition and implementation of the architecture
Transition and definition of the change process, identification of adoptions
3. Pilot Transition
Transition process implemented, test and approval criteria define
4. Workload Transition
Data transition completed, workload-ready for inspection and testing
All defined and transitioned data inspected and approved, ready for cut-over
6. Cut-over and go-live
The existing solution is replaced, the universal command is live
7. Project Closure
Smooth transition accomplished, successful project closure
