A Modern Solution for the Modern Data Center

When critical IT processes fail, the entire company suffers. Just one minute of downtime costs an average of $5,600. A file arriving late could disrupt an entire workflow, causing your business to miss an SLA before anyone notices the problem.

Automation is key to keeping IT operations running smoothly, but today’s enterprises run on infrastructure too complex for yesterday’s job schedulers. Chances are, you are dealing with challenges like:

  • Processes requiring cross-platform dependencies
  • Complicated month-end reporting
  • Coordinating the automation of multiple applications
  • Difficulties rescheduling jobs due to holidays or changing resources
  • Maintaining custom scripts for each process

The basic job schedulers built into UNIX, Windows, IBM i, or your business applications aren’t going to cut it, and custom scripting is both expensive and risky. What you need is a comprehensive, enterprise-class workload automation solution.

"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."

Workload Automation Keeps Your Business in Business

IT process job scheduling tools

You have to sleep, but your job scheduler doesn’t. The right tool will allow you to rest easy knowing that if a critical job or piece of equipment fails, you’ll be notified immediately. During the work day, you and your team won’t be bogged down monitoring jobs or performing manual operations—instead, you’ll be able to concentrate on the strategic and creative initiatives that really help the business.

Workload automation lets you:

  • Increase productivity and efficiency
  • Reduce the cost per hour to conduct business
  • Cultivate a more productive, satisfied staff
  • Avoid audit and SLA penalties
  • Optimize the use of existing technology

A basic job scheduler automates the tasks you have on your plate right now. A sophisticated workload automation solution sets you up for future growth. As your workload gets more complex and you add additional business applications to your infrastructure, you’ll be able to easily integrate your new processes into the existing job schedule.
