DevOps.com – Mike Vizard – 3/6/18
CA Technologies further advanced its staged goal of unifying its disparate portfolio of DevOps automation tools by announcing today a new release of CA Workload Automation AE (AutoSys) software now directly integrated with the CA Automic One Automation platform the company acquired early last year.
CA AutoSys is the older of two offerings and is positioned by CA Technologies as being able to support more complex workloads running on a larger number of platforms, including mainframes. CA Automic One Automation was acquired to bolster the automation capabilities CA can offer optimized for distributed computing environments.
Gwyn Clay, vice president of product management for CA Automic, said it’s no secret CA Technologies has multiple automation engines. The long-term goal is to enable organizations to employ any mix of automation engines and associated DevOps tools as they see fit to create what the company describes a software factory.
