apsware analytics for Control-M
Control-M reporting and metrics within everyone’s reach
apsware analytics collects and visualizes the data which helps you to better manage your business processes automated via Control-M. With a few clicks, meaningful views, metrics and reports are created by everyone. Results can be shared via a dashboard, so that everyone who needs to know is informed. This new level of transparency allows you to take Control-M automation to a higher level.
Processes automated via a digital automation solution such as Control-M are vital to your companies daily operations and overall success. When SLA’s have not been met, there can be significant financial and other consequences, therefore knowing the SLA status history is crucial.
With apsware analytics everyone who needs this information can self-service themselves and quickly produce answers without involving a Control-M expert. Whether they need SLA compliance metrics on a monthly, weekly or daily basis, apsware analytics aggregates and presents concise SLA reports quicker and more accurately than ever before. Users may even drill-in and dive deeper whenever required.
If an automation process was not completed in time (SLA violation), you need to identify the root cause of the delay as soon as possible and fix it in order to avoid future negative business impact. Finding the root cause of the delay in complex environments with many job dependencies is a labor intensive task, which normally requires expert level knowledge.
apsware analytics can automatically identify and visualize the critical path to a specific Control-M job. The critical path root cause analysis can be performed by everyone within minutes. Saving valuable research time, helping to mitigate future risk. Better, faster and easier than other means of collecting and reporting on this time sensitive data.
The missing Link
Long-term job history
In a typical Control-M environment, you are collecting job history for a few days. apsware analytics overcomes this limitation and collects and normalizes automation run-time statistics and structures for weeks and years. Based on this solid data foundation, you may analyze and visualize your automated business processes faster than ever before.
With just a few mouse clicks any user with minimal knowledge of Control-M or automation can see meaningful reports, KPI’s, metrics and views in seconds. Reporting results can be securely shared via a dashboard based on groups or individual users preferences. This new level of transparency allows better communication and elevates Control-M to a higher level of corporate visibility, uniquely supporting devops and agile enterprise analytics requirements. Freeing your IT staff or consultants from tedious data collection and reporting tasks.
How has a job performed over the previous years or months? When has it started? When has it ended? What is the average duration? Is the job duration growing or shrinking? When did a job have an unusually short or long duration, or other anomalies? apsware analytics provides out-of-the box reports to answer these questions immediately.
How many jobs have executed yesterday, over last x days or within a range of days. Numerous filter options on jobnames, jobstatus and other key parameters are available to define meaningful metrics and dashboards, right out of the box, users simply point click and report.
Audit and Compliance
An out of the box Control-M data-warehouse is another by-product of using apsware analytics, now historical analysis has no limits and audit compliance is easier than ever before.
The power of sharing reliable data.
Information sharing becomes easier. Everyone is relying on the correct data, presented in a consistent format. Authorized users can create their own private dashboard tab within the apsware analytics dashboard or they can create and utilize tabs which are accessible by a group of coworkers. Integration with Active Directory and LDAP is fully supported. If needed, specific views and results can be exported in PDF and CSV format to be shared or further analyzed and presented in other widely used office tools.
Single Pane of Glass
Support of multiple environments and automation solutions.
Integration with other useful functionality beyond analytics.
Focal Point of reporting for multiple Control-M environments
apsware analytics is the focal point of reporting for one or multiple Control-M environments.
This makes analysis far more effective for the realities of common complex configurations involving, multiple production-, QA-, test- and development-environments.
Focal Point of reporting for other automation solutions, like IBM Workload Scheduler
In many cases companies are running more than one digital automation solution, due to an acquisition, merger or another strategic initiative. Conversion to a single automation solution maybe a long-term or short-term goal, with apsware analytics you can easily unite reporting from BMC, IBM or other digital automation products on a single-screen. This will help answer daily production queries and make an eventual consolidation less daunting.
Additional functionality beyond analytics via the integration with other apsware products
apsware analytics is part of the apsware product family, engineered on top of the apsware core foundation. This enables multiple digital automation tools available from apsware, such as apsware analytics, apsware job request, apsware discovery, apsware change and apsware compare to operate from a single, integrated platform, facilitating single pane analysis for all of your Digital Business Automation Analytics and Reporting needs.
