Lands’ End needed to upgrade from its legacy CA Workload Automation ESP scheduler in order to comply with a company-wide strategic decision to migrate all enterprise applications off the z/OS Mainframe environment. The Lands’ End scheduling team volunteered to be the first in the company to modernize, and a robust list of system requirements were collected, reviewed and ranked. A Request for Proposal (RFP) was prepared and distributed to five vendors, including Stonebranch.

Results:

  • Vastly improved maintenance
  • Ease of use
  • Seamless upgrades
  • Enhanced and reliable alerts
  • Quick and effective transition from legacy scheduler
  • Reduced z/OS CPU usage
