How we Migrate existing Control-M Projects

"We selected Stonebranch's Universal Automation Center because it was everything we were looking for in a scheduling solution and more. The transition team was extremely knowledgeable and responsive and we could not have been happier with the migration".

Mary McCreary, Manager, Data Center Operations at Weis Markets

Don't feel locked into only using Control-M when a less expensive, more modern scheduler is available. Stonebranch provides a truly universal job scheduling or workload automation platform that can be used with any of the marketed scheduling products, other third-party vendor scheduling products and even homegrown solutions.

We are providing a proven methodology for the transition of workload management systems, such as BMC Control-M mainframe and distributed, to the 21st century workload automation engine Universal Automation Center, a true 100% web-based real-time workload automation platform. Our methodology (7 Steps of Transition) has been developed and enhanced over the past decade for successful transitions from any scheduling engine to Stonebranch's Universal Automation Center.

During the transition project, we are implementing Universal Automation Center without a shutdown of your running Control-M scheduling solution. Over the years, this methodology has been optimized for various client needs and has been proven successful with transitions by more than 250 customers worldwide.

The center of all transition approaches is the Stonebranch Transition Engine, a rule-based utility reading the current Control-M databases.

It creates, based on customer specific migration rules, UAC definitions which are used to automatically transform your jobs, tasks and scheduling definitions into Stonebranch UAC.

Special consideration will be given to Control-M specific functionalities, be it mainframe or distributed systems, like the use of Control-O for Console Automation, Shout functionalities and IN/OUT condition definitions. Also, the use of external API’s as well as the huge variety of additional components that can be separately licensed to enhance the Control-M functionality. In particular, form file event driven triggering of events where the Control-M file transfer extension is used. An alternate option will be identified to improve the reliability and management of data exchange operations currently based on Control-M.

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 for a fact-based go/no-go decision for your transition project.

Start the seamless integration now – for a smarter and easier way to manage and orchestrate your processes and workloads.
