Do You Have a Handle on Business-Wide Job Scheduling?

Workload Automation

For IT teams the world over, there are never enough hours in the day. From emergency situations to new corporate initiatives, it can often be difficult to spend time on the integral, data-intensive IT processes that must execute like clockwork to provide ongoing value to your organization.

Lacking resources to carry out critical workflows can impact your ability to meet service level agreements and enforce security on jobs being executed throughout your company. As your business grows and changes, maintaining the right level of oversight for all these activities becomes more challenging—and more important.

A unified approach to job scheduling and workload automation is the key to efficiency across your entire organization. With it, batch processes that typically consume a costly mix of resources to run across separate environments can be managed from a single command center. This enables you to define, manage, and monitor critical processes, while reducing overhead and optimizing how your staff works as it delivers on requests and expectations.

“We run about a million Robot Schedule jobs a year. And, when I look at my Good Morning Report, I like what I see. In the last year, 984,000 jobs ended normally and 209 ended abnormally. I like those numbers—only .02% abnormal is very, very good.”

“Everything, and I mean everything, is automated in JAMS. Backups, maintenance, everything runs in JAMS. We have over 600 jobs running daily. If we need to change the schedule we change JAMS, not the job. It’s great.”

“I’ve been in operations most of my working life and it’s nice to not have a swing, or midnight, shift anymore. All we get now is an occasional page at night because of a failed job. We have someone on call.”
