If I already have OnCommand Unified Manager Provisoning Capability, why do I need to have Workflow administration software? I know Workflow can replace a lot of administration tasks, but do I really need it?
The Provisioning Manager and Protection Manager modules in OnCommand Unified Manager support only 7-Mode; they will not be updated to support Clustered Data ONTAP. OnCommand Workflow Automation (WFA) is our new orchestration tool. WFA not only supports both 7-Mode and Clustered Data ONTAP, but also, is much, much more flexible and customizable than Provisioning Manager.
I'd recommend checking out the OnCommand Workflow Automation community for some more details and demo videos. WFA is also part of the weekly demo series. If you'd like a one on one discussion and/or demo, reach out to your sales team and we'd be more than happy to schedule some time with you.
Re: Should I have both Provisioning Manager and Workflow softwre?
