BMC’s Control-M scheduler core technology hasn’t changed in more than a decade. In the era of digital business, it’s a dinosaur. It can’t compete in a world where technology is rapidly evolving and enabling organizations must innovate and optimize their operations. With security issues, manual processes, costly add-ons and one of the highest TCOs in the industry, Control-M just doesn’t cut it. And the fact that multiple licenses and products are needed for file transfer activity, change management and application workflow doesn’t help its cause.
Replace BMC Control‑M
TACKLE BUSINESS RISK
ADAPT TO YOUR COMPANY NEEDS
Using Control-M in the modern digital landscape leaves you open to risk around reliability, functionality and cost. It means that you lack the flexibility to respond to changing customer expectations and business needs.
TAKE A MODERN APPROACH
Modern SaaS workload automation offers a better approach that overcomes the limitations of legacy job schedulers.
RunMyJobs offers scalable and secure SaaS workload automation that far surpasses BMC's Control-M capabilities. It provides a single point of control, integrated dashboards and a visual process chain editor that simplifies automation.
RunMyJobs frees your staff from the time they waste managing repetitive manual tasks with outdated BMC software. In 2019 we ran more than 200 million automation tasks across all industries, with zero interruptions. As it’s built as a SaaS solution from the ground up, it requires no additional hardware or downtime. And our support service is available 24x7.
MIGRATION MADE EASY
Migrating to RunMyJobs is easier than you think, with significant benefits. Redwood’s migration program provides a safe route for organizations that want to replace any scheduling or workload automation tool available. For nearly three decades, we’ve successfully moved customers from Automic, BMC, Broadcom/CA, IBM, Tidal and more.
We can provide a roadmap for your automation in the digital era, with unrivaled support that is consistently praised by our customers. For an independent perspective, in its “Modernize to Digitize” report leading analyst firm Enterprise Management Associates® (EMA) has detailed why businesses are moving from legacy tools like BMC Control-M to modern SaaS workload automation solutions such as Redwood’s RunMyJobs.
WHY RUNMYJOBS HAS CONTROL-M BEAT
RunMyJobs is the world’s only true SaaS solution for workload automation and job scheduling. Consistent leadership, dedication and investment have enabled us to keep ahead of any other automation technology. Using BMC’s Control-M to automate means painful audits, multiple products, endless workarounds and high license fees. And its new-day approach to batch scheduling means operations must shut down for a short time every day. And to say a 25-year-old system is “cloud-ready” wouldn’t be accurate.
RunMyJobs reduces the TCO of automation by up to 50% compared to Control-M. This is because it offers all the functionality you need in a single package and integrates seamlessly with all your applications, including SAP®. RunMyJobs has been validated by SAP for full compatibility since its first release and Redwood has been an SAP partner for nearly 15 years.
PURPOSE-BUILT FOR MODERN WORKLOADS
WHY RUNMYJOBS IS YOUR BEST BET FOR WORKLOAD AUTOMATION
In its recent “RADAR for Workload Automation: Q4 2019” report, EMA named Redwood’s RunMyJobs a Value Leader and Best SaaS Workload Automation solution. The report compares 16 software vendors, including BMC and Redwood, looking at functionality, architecture and integration, deployment and administration, cost, and vendor strength.
RunMyJobs stood out in the following ways:
We perform almost 50,000 file transfers every day in an 800+ server environment that drives our customer service and all of our business transactions. Since moving to RunMyJobs, we've been able to simplify the way we manage all aspects of business service automation. We keep finding new efficiencies.
