Hello blog readers! It’s Allison from from the Marketing Department. Every month, I’ll be interviewing a member of our sales team to learn about the newest and most exciting technology solutions offered by our partners! Today we’re speaking with Bill Craver, Senior Account Executive and Workload Automation Champion here at ATEC Group.
AS: To start off the interview, can you share some of the top benefits of workload automation solutions?
BC: To put it simply, workload automation solutions help businesses to increase their operational capabilities while decreasing expenses. When configured correctly, workload automation schedulers are able to integrate applications into business environments quickly and smoothly, while also enabling communication with applications from external organizations. This leads to greater flexibility, growth, and efficiency for businesses!
AS: What workload automation tools does ATEC Group recommend to clients?
BC: We offer clients BMC Control-M and Cisco Tidal Scheduler, the two major players among workload automation tools. Gartner recognizes BMC Control-M as a leader in the industry and a top-right quadrant solution.
AS: Does workload automation generally benefit enterprise or smaller companies?
BC: Workload automation solutions are generally geared towards mid-sized to enterprise clients that are faced with a workload that requires too much time and money to manage. Our solutions are most often utilized among companies that have over 250 employees.
AS: What are the biggest challenges that clients face when adopting workload automation solutions?
BC: One of the major challenges that companies face is not having a detailed roadmap or planning out exactly how and where workload automation can best benefit their business. Our team at ATEC recommends an audit of current business processes be conducted prior to implementing any workload automation tools so that we can better determine where to begin making your business operate smarter and faster.
Many companies also fail to invest in training and implementation services. While most workload automation tools are user-friendly, it’s important to remember that there is still a substantial learning curve for many users.
AS: Why should clients choose ATEC Group to manage their workload automation vs. a competitor?
BC: Adopting a comprehensive and effective workload automation solution is a significant undertaking that we believe should not be taken lightly. The engineers at ATEC Group have an average of 20+ years of experience supporting business schedulers, allowing us to complete projects more efficiently and cost-effectively than competitors. We offer a wide range of workload automation services, including installation, configuration, as well as upgrades and conversions from Cisco Tidal to BMC Control-M. We also take extra step in providing on-site support when needed!
