Broadcom AutoSys Workload Automation's Future is Uncertain

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 prospect of having Broadcom add new functionality to improve its capabilities looks remote.

The signs aren’t promising for AutoSys customers:

  • Broadcom has laid off 40% of CA’s US support staff
  • Professional services have been outsourced
  • Innovation budgets have been reduced by more than half

It can be integrated with nearly every enterprise system and application, can be scaled as needed, and is able to function with minimal human intervention. Redwood’s process automation and orchestration software enables greater collaboration and frees your staff from managing repetitive manual tasks with outdated technology.

  • Automation is Redwood Software’s singular focus

Frequently Asked Questions

What does Broadcom CA AutoSys do?

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.

What is workload automation software?

Workload automation is a type of software that automates IT operations and 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.

What is the difference between CA and Broadcom AutoSys?

CA and Autosys should not be considered as two separate things. CA is a company, Computer Associates, that develops and maintains the AutoSys software for job scheduling under the Broadcom company umbrella.
