VENDOR PROFILE: BROADCOM OVERVIEW 85.77 2019 100 90 80 70 60 50 40 30 82.05 89.93 20 10 0 89.36 2 EMA RADAR FOR WORKLOAD AUTOMATION (WLA): Q4 2019 2019 Enterprise Management Associates, Inc. www.enterprisemanagement.com 57.05 CA Technologies, a Broadcom company with the product Automic Automation, is once again a Value Leader. Broadcom acquired CA Technologies in November 2018, coming close on the back of CA’s acquisition of Automic in 2017. Automic Automation remains the strategic WLA product for Broadcom. While all CA and Automic products continue to be supported, Automic Automation v12.3 is the only Broadcom WLA product reviewed in this report. Automic Automation provides automation for complex workloads across platforms, ERP systems, and business apps from mainframe to microservices and serverless in both cloud and on-premises. Automic Automation provides selfservice automation with service catalog integrations (e.g., ServiceNow) and automation-as-code facilities for automation and orchestration. The product also simplifies automation for big data and offers self-services for data scientists to scale with strong governance on data flows. The Automation team has remained focused in the wake of several acquisitions. They have modernized the UI of several existing CA products and integrated them successfully into the Automic platform to leverage broader IT systems integrations and enable use of other automation modules, including continuous delivery and AIOps.

VENDOR PROFILE: BROADCOM CA Technologies was founded in 1976 and has a long history in Workload Automation, primarily through acquisition. Its latest acquisition was Automic, with prior acquisitions including AutoSys Workload Automation, ESP dSeries Workload Automation for distributed platforms, CA Workload Automation CA 7 Edition, and CA Workload Automation ESP Edition for mainframe environments. CA Workload Automation iDash provides predictive analytics, forecasting, and reporting. Following the acquisition of Automic, CA established an Automation line of business. Going forward, the choice of workload automation technology will be determined on a client-by-client basis—with Automic Automation as the automation product for new customers. The other WLA products will continue to be developed in line with customer-committed roadmaps. ARCHITECTURE CA Technologies’ integrated automation platform spans physical, virtual, and cloud computing in supporting end-to-end business and IT workflows that cross applications. By managing and abstracting the complex interdependencies that increasingly exist in modern data centers, Automic Automation consolidates and simplifies IT administration. Automic Automation automates IT processes that traditionally require multiple areas or disciplines of automation. This functionality reduces integration and interface costs by avoiding the usual issues that occur when multiple tools must be used to automate one process. 3 EMA RADAR FOR WORKLOAD AUTOMATION (WLA): Q4 2019 2019 Enterprise Management Associates, Inc. www.enterprisemanagement.com Automic Automation
