BMC is pleased to announce that the initial release of Control-M Workbench will be available for beta testing starting March 13, 2017.

What is Control-M Workbench?

Control-M Workbench is a solution for creating batch business application jobs using a Jobs-as-Code approach. It is a publicly-available sandbox that runs as an open virtual appliance on a personal laptop and enables developers to build, test and debug Control-M jobs.


What’s new in Control-M Workbench?

This is the initial release and provides the following capabilities:

  • Get a developer sandbox that runs on your laptop and is ready to work in less than 5 minutes
  • Build, test and debug job flows that automate data pipelines, analytics and batch business flows
  • Use JSON to write the automation rules that become part of your application
  • Use developer-friendly interfaces like RESTful web services or a node.js cli to validate, execute and debug your job flows
  • Store automation rules (jobs) and configuration objects in Git or any other SCM together with the rest of your application artifacts
