running.jpgDesikan Madhavanur, SVP and Business Unit Executive for the Workload Automation business line here at CA Technologies posted a blog post earlier today titled "Stop running on the endless workload systems treadmill." The results of a recent Forrester Total Economic Impact study show how a major retailer achieved 245% ROI over three years, saved millions in reduced productivity and operational costs after implementing CA Workload Automation.

 

"When it comes to your company’s workload, do you sometimes get the feeling like you’re running on a non-stop treadmill? Scheduling multiple jobs for multiple applications with multiple views into how everything’s working?

Making the jump from homegrown systems to an enterprise-grade workload automation system can be a big leap for IT organizations. Executives are usually asked to build a business case that justifies the migration. To help make this easier, we commissioned Forrester Consulting to quantify the benefits that a customer using CA Workload Automation enjoys.

At CA we’ve seen an increasing trend over the last two years for consolidating multiple workload systems and doing swap-outs from homegrown, legacy and competitive workload tools to CA Workload Automation. Drivers for this come from the need to consolidate multiple tools with a single one for simpler support and lower overhead costs.

In this blog post, we look at how a large retailer made the jump from a homegrown system to CA Workload Automation to improve productivity, save costs and realize significant ROI."
