Automic Automation, as a part of Broadcom’s workload automation tools, enables its users to automate complex IT processes under one platform, thus minimizing the need for alternative solutions for different business operations.1

Despite its automation capabilities, it also has below average user satisfaction performance as indicated by a B2B review platform.2One of the possible causes for such performance can be lower user ratings compared to other automation platforms (See Table 1) and user reviews highlighting shortcomings in file transfer capabilities, dashboard building features and customer services (See Automic Automation shortcomings).

We will provide a review based evaluation of Automic Automation, along with its key features, capabilities and alternatives to give a comprehensive outlook on the solution.
