Biographie de l'auteur
Qiang Ding (Melbourne, Australia) has been working within the Control-M space for more than a quarter of his life. During his early days at BMC Software, Qiang resolved countless number of critical technical issues for Control-M customers around the world from Fortune 500 companies to government organizations. In recent years, Qiang has travelled hundreds thousands of miles around Australia and the North AP area to help many organizations to design, manage, and optimize their batch workload automation environment and to extend his passion to others by delivering Control-M trainings to end users and BMC Partners.
Currently Qiang is temporary living in Sydney and working on a enterprise wide Control-M migration and Consolidation project for a major Australian bank. He enjoys working with other experts in the field and is constantly involved in finding ways for making improvements to the batch environment that he works on.

Qing has written a book that takes you through the product from setup, to scheduling, to post-run analysis. You'll not only learn about the Control-M worload scheduling system, but you will also learn about just what exactl is "workload automation" (hint: it's not just batch anymore) and how can you use this tool to help prioritize, plan and implement workload rules across your IT processes no matter if they are batch, real-time or a hybrid of the both.
I highly recommend this book to anyone who is a newbie to the world of Control-M. It will give you a good starting point reference guide, as well as give you background of why the tool does what it does -- and what makes it all work behind the scenes.
BMC has taken the control of batch processing very far. The book goes into intricate details about much that is possible under Control-M. One sign of the times is that it can be installed with an accompanying Oracle or Sybase database, or it can use a default one supplied by BMC.
Many subprocesses or servers are defined, that interact with each other. These were factored out as separate but related entities to simplify the coding. Much of the approach is very heavyweight, probably by necessity of the large computational jobs to be run under it. For example, one server [the naming service] is an open source C++ instantiation of CORBA. The latter is renowed (or notorious) for producing overall systems that are tightly bound, unlike the loosely coupled approach of Service Oriented Architecture.
The breakdown of the servers should seem logical to you. Starting with the supervisor, called SU [="superuser"]. This is used to manage the lesser processes. And to avoid or reduce the risk that an inexperienced user submitting or controlling one of the latter can trash the entire system. Again, this broadly follows the general approach of multiuser systems that define the roles of generic users and a superuser [root].
Unlike the batch controls of VMS, Control-M has a graphical user interface. Comprehensive and a little daunting by being so. There are indeed many options you can pick, and understanding the meaning of these is a non-trivial learning curve.
Logically, there is a command line interface where you can enter typically long commands [they have many options] to submit to Control-M. Over time if you get experienced, you might actually prefer the CLI because this allows a simple automated scheduling, whereas the GUI often implies manually bringing up a window in which to pick choices.
It is an incredible read and a good reminder why we are doing batch processing and many ideas on improving how we do our job.
I'd happily recommend this book as a superb reference book and guide.
