You should consider to replace Tidal Workload Automation with Stonebranch UAC to improve visualization of workload processes and take advantage of the most modern and future-proof automation solution.
Tidal Workload Automation formerly known as Cisco Workload Automation (CWA) or Cisco Tidal Enterprise Scheduler (TES) was accquired by Dillon Kane Group (DKG) in 2017. The development of Tidal Workload Automation (WLA) has become stagnant in recent years and it's unclear if the product will see sufficient support in the future. Don't feel locked into only using Tidal. You can save money and break free from the stronghold vendors try to leverage at
Enterprise License Agreement (ELA) renewal time. Stonebranch provides a truly universal job scheduling and workload automation platform that can be used with any of the marketed scheduling products, other third-party vendor scheduling products and even homegrown solutions. Eliminate the dawbacks of your Tidal WLA Solution and take advantage of the future-proof Universal Automation Center (UAC).
Achieve Maximum Acceleration for Your Tidal Processes and Eliminate the Drawbacks
The flexibility of the Stonebranch platform is boundless. We now have automations that can alert on any step of the workflow and page out the proper team to address the failure.
The services provided by Stonebranch during the implementation were excecuted exactly as they said they would. We were very impressed.

PSCU Seamlessly Converts to Universal Automation Center and Automates their Finance Workflows
Established in 1977, PSCU is America’s leading credit union service organization (CUSO). The company was recognized as CUSO of the Year in 2016 by the National Association of Credit Union Service Organizations. PSCU’s products, financial services solutions and service model collectively support over 850 Ownercredit unions representing more than 20 million credit, debit, prepaid, online bill payment and mobile accounts
During a thorough review of their Application Performance Management (APM) program, it was determined that PSCU had many manual processes in the enterprise that was undocumented and that 99% of the time, when a workflow failed, it was the end user that notified them that they had not received their workflow delivery. A decision was made to implement a modern, intuitive enterprise automation solution in order to remediate these issues. “We had outgrown the legacy tool we had been using,” says PSCU IT Operations Manager, Earl Diem. “We conducted a Proof of Concept (POC) with four different companies focusing on solutions in the Gartner Magic Quadrant for workload automation where the core competency of the company was automation.”
Following this intense Proof of Concept (POC), PSCU chose Stonebranch’s Universal Automation Center as their new workload automation solution. PSCU migrated every one of their jobs to Stonebranch’s Universal Automation Center and totally automated their finance workflows, completing the project six weeks ahead of schedule and on budget.
