Welcome to Control-M User Group

CONTROL-M is batch scheduling software produced by BMC Software, originally written for mainframes but also available for distributed computing platforms including Unix, Windows, Linux and OpenVMS environments. CONTROL-M can be integrated with applications such as SAP and Oracle, to act as a scheduling organizer in these platforms. The intent of this site is a personal reference of information about Control-M that can be accessed via the web, sparate from the resources avaialble on the BMC support pages.

Control-M Server and Enterprise Manager (EM) require some administration. However, the tool itself can manage a great deal of this for you and alert you if there is an issue. Included in this site will be some of those tasks to manage both the Control-M Server and Control-M Enterprise Manager. Some scripts that have been created to elevate the manual process and alerting features. Also, a naming convention for Control-M as a standard and guideline to work with. Naming Convention for Control-M varies from organization to organization, but if nothing else it's a guideline to incorperate something similiar if needed.
