Technology is in a constant state of evolution, and the world of automation is no exception. In this eBook, we’ll consider how you can stay ahead of the competition—because in the application economy, it’s vital to ensure the tools your organization uses are capable of positioning you at the forefront of industry—not just today, but tomorrow as well.
We are heading toward a scenario where workload automation tools are capable of thinking for themselves and making decisions based on policy; this is what we at CA Technologies are calling intelligent automation. At the same time, however, more and more challenges are being presented as the increasingly fragmented places our workloads run begin to impact our analytics, reporting and processes. The task is to navigate these hurdles while at the same time allowing our enterprises to harness the power of new technology.
CA Technologies automation solutions help organizations increase business productivity by simplifying the management of complex workloads and empowering development teams with self-service tools that accelerate the development and delivery of new and enhanced applications. CA Technologies commissioned Forrester Consulting to conduct a Total Economic Impact™ (TEI) study and examine the potential return on investment (ROI) that enterprises may realize from automation. The purpose of this study is to provide readers with a framework to evaluate the potential financial impact of CA on their organizations.
To better understand the benefits, costs, and risks associated with CA workload automation (WLA) solutions, Forrester interviewed an existing customer with years of experience using CA. The organization that Forrester interviewed manufactures consumer electronics that it sells through retailers around the globe. Download this whitepaper to find out more.
You’ve made a major investment in Oracle E-Business Suite applications to run your critical enterprise processes. But these processes stretch beyond Oracle E-Business Suite and rely on a mix of custom and packaged applications.
Management of your critical enterprise processes has become a pressing challenge. Too many staff are tied up in managing the process, as well as finding and diagnosing process errors. SLAs are frequently missed, and customers perceive poor quality of service due to the recurring errors and delays, which are now impacting your critical processes, such as financial period end close, invoicing, payroll and materials requirements planning (MRP) processing. You’ve decided it’s time to consider automation.
Automating Oracle E-Business Suite processes end-to-end can eliminate 90% of business process errors. Download this whitepaper to find out how.
It doesn’t matter whether you’re new to Oracle Retail, have an active implementation project that is running or have an existing deployment in production. The same issue applies: You are making a significant investment in the technology and need to develop a reliable and efficient batch schedule.
If you’re new to Oracle Retail, you are no doubt embarking on a major project to improve your competitive position in the retail market. With that in mind, your goals will be to shrink the time-to-market for your retail implementation, lower the reliability risks associated with in-house developed solutions and improve the visibility and control of retail business processes.
In this eBook you will discover a series of recommendations for operating a fail-safe and efficient Oracle Retail operational environment. You will also understand how automation enables you to streamline the execution of your Oracle Retail batch operations and increase the day-to-day efficiency of your operations teams.
You are most likely reading this because you are either an Oracle Retail customer or are about to embark on an Oracle Retail implementation. As with all major application implementations, you must make a significant investment, often of several months or more, to develop a reliable and efficient batch schedule.
With CA Automic Workload Automation, you can cut the batch schedule development and implementation time to just a few weeks, and also reduce ongoing maintenance. The result is reduced total cost of ownership (TCO).
This white paper describes how CA can help significantly shorten your Oracle Retail batch schedule development time. In addition, the paper describes how this Oracle Validated solution optimizes performance of Oracle Retail so your core retail processes will run faster and be more agile.
Enterprises today face the major challenge of how to fully orchestrate the apps that define their business and automate the IT processes underpinning them when much of the infrastructure used to run them is outsourced to cloud providers.
Some cloud service providers offer their own orchestration tools, and each on-premises tool has automation capabilities. But while we own our apps, providers are interchangeable depending on what they can offer and for what price. We should be able to switch between cloud providers and between cloud, on-premises and hybrid infrastructure as and when the business requires, with minimal effort and without losing any control. Sometimes we might want to use more than one provider at the same time, leveraging the advantages of each provider simultaneously.
What is needed is an orchestration layer that remains constant while cloud services come and go; one that enterprises own along with their core apps.
Some SAP systems can take up to 10 days to complete a SAP system copy. That’s 10 days of unproductive time. Why? SAP does not provide the necessary tools out-of-the-box to automate and handle the process efficiently. This means you must use highly skilled SAP BASIS staff to manage the process. Manual steps, along with hundreds of configuration settings, can take days to complete—and like many organizations, you have also experienced too many delays, causing non-production systems to be unavailable, which stalls development, testing and training activities.
So you’ve concluded your SAP system copy process is hindering innovation and productivity. You’re considering automating the process to ensure system copies are available for all environments on time, every time.
What are the key capabilities you actually need to address SAP system copy inefficiency once and for all?
It is not uncommon for SAP system copies, including any post-editing, to take several days to complete. Meanwhile, testing, development and training activities come to a standstill, and the large number of manual tasks in the entire process ties up highly skilled SAP BASIS staff.
Enterprises are looking to automation as a way to accelerate SAP system copies and free up staff. However, this is only one part of the problem: What further complicates the system copy process is the need to safeguard sensitive data and manage huge data volumes while also ensuring that the data used in non-production systems adequately reflects the data in production systems so the quality of development, testing and training activities is not compromised.
This white paper explains how a considerable portion of the SAP system copy process can be automated using the CA Automic Automated System Copy for SAP solution and SNP T-Bone, helping enterprises become more agile.

Customers today are far more concerned about the contents and origin of a product than ever before. in such a scenario, granting them easy access to product information, via digital initiatives such as SmartLabel™, goes a long way in strengthening customer trust in a brand. But it also means expending several man-hours of effort processing unstructured data, with the possibility of human error.
Intelligent automation can help save effort and time, with virtually error-free results. A consumer products conglomerate wanted a smart solution to implement SmartLabel™ compliance. See how Infosys helped and the five key takeaways from the project.

Accounts Payable is a fundamental activity for nearly all businesses. Pick any enterprise and you can bet there is an AP function at the heart of financial operations. The obligation to pay off short-term debt is one that every company must satisfy. But more than that, the process to do it must be efficient and productive. If you get behind on your obligations you risk missing important financial discounts, defaulting with creditors, and damaging your reputation with suppliers and stakeholders.
CFOs face the challenges associated with Accounts Payable…and it’s easy to lose sleep. As other areas of business and commerce have become more and more paperless, the accounts payable process in most organizations remains mired in paper copies and manual workflow. The result is an often costly and people intensive process that leaves companies vulnerable to competitors and financial executives with a growing unease over the inherent inefficiencies.
