Since 2008, KMD has relied on Workload Automation Technology from Stonebranch. However, until now, the distributed batch processing remained untouched. Driven by increasing license costs, challenges in handling, finding and managing job output and the heterogeneous IBM agents portfolio the company made the switch to Stonebranch. KMD had been using Fault Tolerant Agents (FTA), SAP extended agents (x-agents) and z-centric agents. The company needed to update the existing environment to improve visibility, simplify usage and enhance operational efficiency.

Results:

  • 43% decrease of relevant jobs
  • 12% faster processing time
  • No additional training costs needed
  • 36% reduction of installed agents
  • Simplified complexity, improved usability and overall cost reduction
