The Risk Of Uncertainty

Whether your business depends on UC4, Automic software, CA Scheduler, CA Workload Automation AE (CA AutoSys), CA Workload Automation DE, Dollar Universe (formerly CA Automic Dollar Universe), Orsyp (legacy Automic), ESP, or another CA technology for job scheduling, you may be tired of the limitations of your current platform. But you don’t have to continue like this – modern workload automation from Redwood can turn uncertainty into opportunity.

Workload Automation With A Bright Future

If you’re currently running CA scheduling technology, you need to consider several key areas when planning for your future. Ask yourself what will happen to the support of your job scheduler? What about upgrades and innovation? How will the CA acquisition impact your digital transformation and move to the cloud?

In contrast to Broadcom, automation is our sole focus. Thanks to consistent leadership, product vision, and investment, Redwood’s automation and orchestration technology is at least five years ahead of any other automation solution. You can rely on Redwood workload automation for the long term.

And there’s never been a better time to migrate away from legacy CA schedulers. In this strategic analysis,, “Three Questions You Must Ask About Your Broadcom/CA Scheduler,” you’ll read why CA schedulers can no longer be trusted to power your business and how modern workload automation is the answer.
