The Guided Assessment Reviews Key Areas of IBM i Operations

Job Scheduling and Batch Management

Your jobs need to run on time and in the right order—your job depends on it. IBM i job scheduling automation software can help you maintain service levels by reducing error and coordinating jobs precisely across multiple servers, platforms, and ERP applications.

Message and Event Monitoring

Managing IBM i messages can be more than a full-time job if you have to do it manually. Messages need a response and resources must be monitored—often over multiple systems and across platforms. By automating message management and resource monitoring, you can be sure you won’t miss important system events.

Performance and Application Monitoring

If you’re not using system, application, and performance monitoring software, everyone’s productivity suffers. It’s hard to be productive when the system is unresponsive. Automated monitoring tools give you system-wide control of partitions, plus performance monitoring across the system, root cause analysis, and exception-based management.

Report and Document Management

The thought of printing, distributing, and storing system reports manually may reduce you to tears. Paper and labor costs associated with report generation can easily spiral out of control, and rerunning reports for careless end users is a pain. With document management software, you can go paperless and automate key business processes by electronically capturing, managing, and distributing documents and forms.

Data Backup Management

Disaster protection is vital to every business. Yet, it often consists of error-prone, patched together procedures. From automatic backups to data encryption to save media management, IBM i backup and recovery software automates routine save and restore tasks, saving you time and money and making the process safer and more reliable.

What Do I Get After Completing the Assessment?

Once your responses are submitted, our tool will generate your results—your Automation Score—both online and as a downloadable PDF that you can distribute or keep for your records.

This score shows how your responses stack up against industry benchmarks and best practices. It includes color-coded indicators for each of the five essential areas of IT automation and advice on how you can move forward with improvements in each area.

Our expert will review your results with you during the call and help you plan your next step.
