Case Study: Computer Sciences Corporation Reduces Managem

By Michael Boon

Stonebranch's Universal Agent replaces CSC's legacy system, reducing cost, time and resources associated with job scheduling tasks.

CSC deployed a legacy job scheduling system that was too complicated. This led to problems on its mainframe due to errors and an increasing amount of time required to create the daily scheduling plan. Another issue was the amount of time necessary to manage scheduler agents and roll them out onto new servers. Over a two-year period, the legacy solution ran on only 25 servers, and a scheduling vendor could not solve CSC's problems without constant maintenance. Additionally, CSC was losing considerable amounts of money and faced potential penalties due to customer complaints and out-of-service issues.

Results:

  • 65% reduction in job scheduling management time
  • 67% reduction in cost of job scheduling solution
  • Elimination of platform/server issues
