Automic schedulers tend to be overly complex and it is very likely that the licence fees will increase in the near future. Don't feel locked into only using Automic. Save money and break free from the stronghold vendors try to leverage at Enterprise License Agreement (ELA) renewal time by

switching to Stonebranch. With UAC we are providing a truly universal job scheduling or workload automation platform that can be used with any scheduling product or homegrown solution. Start orchestrating and automating your business processes and tasks from a single point of view.

Maintenance

Ongoing maintenance and upgrades are a lot easier because fewer components need to be worked on i.e., one database, no thick client to install and maintain.

With Stonebranch we easily centralized or multiple job scheduling landscapes, reducred risk because a system of checks and balances is in place throughout our IT infrastructure. By automating our processes, there is no need for manual intervention and the amount of time and resources dedicated to our job scheduling process is greatly reduced."

Michael J. Walsh, Director Enterprise Technology, FirstOntario Credit Union

FirstOntario Automates Entire Job Scheduling Process

FirstOntario began in 1939 when a group of employees at the Steel Company of Canada created the Stelco Credit Union. Today more than 115,000 Ontarians choose FirstOntario for their financial needs – from chequing and savings accounts to loans and mortgages and highly qualified investment advice. FirstOntario Credit Union is a leading credit union located throughout Southwestern Ontario region

FirstOntario Credit Union was utilizing disparate job scheduling tools for its IBMiSeries, Windows and Linux platforms. Using multiple job scheduling tools required the company to monitor each scheduler separately, decreasing visibility and the amount of time and resources allocated to each job scheduling solution. Unable to automate their processes in one environment, the IT team sought a solution that works across platforms without specialization, and that could also standardize processes and consolidate existing tools.

FirstOntario Credit Union selected Stonebranch's technology to replace its diverse agent infrastructures with a single enterprise-wide execution layer, the enterprise execution environment. This unique approach provides FirstOntario with central auditing and monitoring of workload activity across the enterprise as well a central management of the entire workload infrastructure — as if it were a single system.
