Enterprise Job Scheduling Software & Solutions
Enterprise job scheduling software helps automate IT task as part of a daily system plan. This SaaS-based or on-premises solution initiates business processes and tasks at regular intervals. Learn what characteristics make it unique.
Job scheduling leverages a software called a job scheduler, which is designed to automate IT task processes. Almost every operating system has its own scheduler; Microsoft Windows features the Windows Task Scheduler while Linux and Unix platforms feature Cron as their job scheduler. Job schedulers take care of business processes and requirements by using data, such as calendar entries and specific times and dates, to run background processes with the help of an IT administrator or the IT operations team.
