Control-M version 9 has been available for close on 12 months, many customers who have switched to this latest version will be familiar with its key benefits, which incorporate greater levels of availability, simplicity of use and time saving features.
For those yet to upgrade here’s a brief rundown of some of these benefits:
The Control-M Workload Change Manager enables the promotion of workflows from test to production environments to be automated - job definitions are modified and verified according to the standards of the target environment. This greatly benefits more rapid application deployment cycle times.
The management of calendars can be quite time consuming and potentially error prone particularly in environments with multiple Control-M/Servers. Now, in version 9, one calendar can be created in Control-M/EM and this can be synchronised across all Control-M/Servers without having to update each one individually.
Task usage thresholds can be created which will enable an email to be triggered warning of the threshold being reached.
In short, improved ease of use, greater speed to achieve outcomes and enhanced availability features are foremost among the main benefits of version 9 of Control-M.
