Thanks to my deep and long experience as WA L3 Support Manager, assisting thousands of customers in the WLA area, I really recognize now a shift in the need for an advanced WLA solution based on innovation and able to really assist organizations during a new journey in the Cloud and Digital Transformation Era!
The huge investment being done by HCL Technologies in accelerating the roadmap of the HCL Workload Automation (HWA) solution is already leading to concrete facts with the availability of the powerful HCL Workloads Automation on AWS to support the Cloud Transformation with a solution designed “in the Cloud” and “for the Cloud”.
The growth of the Cloud and the use of applications offered as-a-service have reignited the need to orchestrate flows of unattended actions.

HWA enables your Cloud transformation with elastic scaling, flexible runcycles, and event driven functionalities to properly automate the management of VM lifecycle for a controlled usage of resources:
HCL Workload Automation (https://www.hcltech.com/products-and-platforms/workload-automation#aws-marketplace) is the HCL batch scheduling tool proposed as enterprise scheduler. It is an advanced, intelligent solution able to assist organizations in consolidating all the enterprise batch scheduling, leveraging on the Cloud, with a single point of control through an advanced User Interface, and a smart virtual assistant bot – Clara - to deliver embedded L1 support!
The availability of Clara, the Workload Automation assistant bot, integrated with HWA through Rest APIs, opens the solution to end-users and enables the possibility to move from a centralized scheduling model to an open scheduling as-a-service, providing the functionality directly to the Line of Business (LoB), with important opex reduction and business opportunities for an advanced automation journey.
HCL Clara is the automation bot that enables users to quickly learn how to use HWA for an effective workload automation adoption. Clara can access the company's automation knowledge base, provides recommendations and performs tasks for the end-user.
HWA and Clara enable enterprises to respond quickly to real-time business needs providing 7x24 first level support. Clara saves operations time, frees up schedulers, manages how-to questions, and initiates the troubleshooting of Workload Automation conveniently through voice commands or simple text chat.
