Solutions for Automating IT Job Scheduling

Every IT department is aware of the challenges associated with trying to coordinate tasks across disparate technologies and solutions.

  • Customer files coming in via a Linux FTP server need to be ingested into a SQL database.
  • Provisioning Active Directory users requires too many manual steps across too many disparate systems.
  • New records in a database must trigger an action to occur in a middleware system.

Even the most configuration-controlled IT organization must manage lots of little products that somehow need to interact.

Since IT technologies are rarely in the habit of communicating seamlessly with one another, the use of so many disparate technologies can create one unified (and massive) headache. Fortunately, that headache can be alleviated with the use of automated job and batch scheduling solutions.

IT teams need job and batch scheduling tools that support advanced batch scheduling capabilities across a diverse set of platforms that includes Windows, UNIX, Linux, OpenVMS, as well as Mainframes and other platforms.

Developers and operations teams need the ability to automate batch processing, schedule jobs, share data, and manage complex dependencies across systems and applications across the enterprise.
