In January 2018 the latest version of Control-M, version 9.0.18, was released with BMC announcing that from now on a new version of the product would be released every year. This move to an annual delivery model is designed to help customers better plan their upgrade activities by delivering what BMC describe as “access to a regularly scheduled stream of innovation that is quick and easy to consume”. As previously, enhancements and fixes will be issued between new versions in the form of fix packs.
Those who have become accustomed to the most recent GUI appearance will be happy to know that there is no change in the look and feel of Control-M – the work areas used to build and monitor jobs and workflows are unchanged and remain visually appealing and easy to navigate.
So, what IS new in 9.0.18?
Additionally Control-M 9.0.18 reduces risk during the upgrade process … if problems are encountered at any time during the upgrade the environment can be rolled back to the previous version until the issue is resolved.
