Case Study: LVM Centralizes Java Batch Scheduling

By Michael Boon

Universal Agent integrates LVM's existing batch environment with Websphere XD.

LVM, a leading insurance company with more than 2,500 independent agencies throughout Germany, introduced a new insurance application which required it to schedule Java batch jobs running within the WebSphere XD environment on AIX. LVM was unable to find a solution on the market that would allow it to use its existing z/OS job-scheduling environment and was left with the option of using two job-scheduling systems. Managing WebSphere XD batch jobs separately would have increased cost and complexity and prevented end-to-end visibility of the enterprise-wide business process flow.

Results:

  • Reduced risk and effort
  • Met strict audit and compliance mandates
  • Provided end-to-end visibility
