Redwood Software Alternative

Are you ready for a Redwood Software alternative? Stonebranch Universal Automation Center (UAC) is an enterprise-grade replacement for Redwood RunMyJobs, Cronacle, Tidal, and ActiveBatch. UAC manages workloads on-premises and in the cloud — all from a single platform.

Redwood Software offers several competing workload automation platforms. In 2021, Turn River Capital, a private equity group, acquired Redwood. Over time, Turn River Capital has purchased many overlapping companies that automate business processes and combined them under the Redwood Software name. Redwood Software’s original product is an SAP-specific job scheduler named Cronacle, also known as SAP CSP and SAP BPA on the SAP price list. Additional overlapping platforms include RunMyJobs, ActiveBatch, and Tidal.

Those looking for a Redwood Software alternative come to Stonebranch for several reasons. As a single-solution company, Stonebranch’s innovation roadmap is uniquely focused on the Universal Automation Center (UAC) platform. Gartner recognizes UAC as a service orchestration and automation platform (SOAP), a category that evolved from traditional on-premises workload automation. UAC is available either on-premises or as a SaaS offering. Additionally, UAC enables you to centrally orchestrate your entire hybrid IT environment — from a single, modern, and mature platform.
