If your business relies on CA Workload Automation AE (AutoSys®) for job scheduling, it’s at risk. Broadcom’s acquisition of CA Technologies means the future of AutoSys – and any workflow that it automates – is uncertain. AutoSys looks to be on borrowed time. And the prospects of new functionality to improve its capabilities look remote.
The signs aren’t promising for AutoSys customers:
You need a modern workload automation solution to replace CA AutoSys and take you into the future. Redwood’s SaaS workload automation software overcomes the limitations of legacy schedulers like AutoSys. It can be integrated with nearly every business system and application, can be scaled as needed and is able to function with minimal human intervention. Redwood’s process automation and orchestration enables greater collaboration and frees your staff from wasting time on managing repetitive manual tasks with outdated technology.
While CA AutoSys workload automation becomes more obsolete due to a lack of investment, the capabilities of Redwood’s automation are five years ahead of any other job scheduler or IT automation tool available. It’s the next generation of secure and scalable workload automation and orchestration.
Redwood’s migration program provides a safe route for organizations that want an alternative to any scheduling or workload automation tool available. We’ve successfully moved customers away from legacy job scheduling systems from Broadcom/CA, ActiveBatch, BMC, IBM and Tidal for nearly three decades. It’s time to leave the limitations and uncertainty of AutoSys behind.
Leading analyst Enterprise Management Associates® (EMA) has said as much in its “RADAR for Workload Automation” report, which recognizes Redwood for the Best Workload Automation SaaS solution and as a Value Leader. EMA evaluated over a dozen job scheduling software vendors, comparing the overall product strength of each technology with its cost efficiency. It also covered workload-related trends, such as embedded scheduling, DevOps capabilities and agent change management.
Manage process deadlines, workflows, provisioning and decision making to react to real-time conditions before they impact your business.
Redwood’s workload automation solution also integrates with SAP, Oracle and other ERPs. Redwood has been an SAP partner for nearly 15 years and our solution been validated for full compatibility with its ERP since its first release.
We built, tested and migrated 1,900 scheduled business jobs away from RemoteWare and AutoSys. Since then, we’ve run almost three million jobs without a single problem or issue with Redwood.
AutoSys is an automated job management tool that provides scheduling and monitoring capabilities for batch processes executed in the AutoSys environment. AutoSys was originally known as Unicenter AutoSys when it was first developed in the early 1990s, before changing to AutoSys Workload Automation during subsequent acquisitions by Platinum, CA and Broadcom. AutoSys installations can be complex and the software is known to have a heavy footprint. As a result, many organizations have shifted towards cloud-based or cloud-native workload automation solutions such as Redwood. See what you can achieve with Redwood.

Workload automation is a type of software that automates the IT tasks to support a business process. For example, a retailer needs to transfer information about purchases from physical and online stores to a database. The ERP uses that data to coordinate restocking and reorders at the warehouse, and finance applications update accounting records and manage payments to vendors. Business processes like this are designed, scheduled and monitored through workload automation. Discover the wide range of use cases for Redwood’s workload automation platform.
