Case Study: FirstOntario Automates Job Scheduling

By Michael Boon

Job scheduling solution centralizes scheduling, reducing risk and amount of time and resources expended.

FirstOntario Credit Union was utilizing disparate job scheduling tools for its IBM iSeries, 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.

Results:

  • Automated entire job scheduling process
  • Reduced time and resources expended
  • Reduced number of errors and risk
