Background

Jyske Bank, the third largest bank in Denmark, and Nykredit, Denmark’s largest lender, founded JN Data in 2002. JN Data creates and develops the technical foundations for both companies. Its goal is to save resources by combining the two companies’ data centers.

Challenges

JN Data was founded to support Jyske Bank’s and Nykredit’s combined data center. Despite this single data center, JN Data essentially serviced two “islands”, with each company using a different job scheduling system. JN Data needed a way to streamline its processes and improve efficiency by installing fewer scheduling agents.

“We can now run operations in a standardized way. Both Jyske Bank and Nykredit can be handled with the same tools, ensuring that all job scheduling is secure and compliant. We can be more productive instead of dealing with maintenance and production issues.”

Solution

Kim Kvist Hansen, section manager for operations planning at JN Data, had researched several companies about their scheduling solutions when a Stonebranch customer recommended Stonebranch’s Universal Agent to her. Kim requested a proof concept (POC) from Stonebranch for the Universal Agent, an independent scheduling agent solution.

After the POC and an initial trial implementation of Universal Agent, JN Data decided to deploy Universal Agent throughout its infrastructure.

“With Universal Agent, we can enforce standards for the whole operations group. We no longer need additional training for staff members, which raises the efficiency of the whole group.”

Results

Universal Agent‘s simplicity combined with Stonebranch’s supportive approach enabled JN Data to deploy the independent scheduling agents solution on every server without any difficulties, reducing costs significantly.

Ms. Hansen says, “We can now run operations in a standardized way. Both Jyske Bank and Nykredit can be handled with the same tools, ensuring that all job scheduling is secure and compliant. We can be more productive instead of dealing with maintenance and production issues.”

This standardization makes resolving support issues much easier for JN Data, allowing the production group to easily support either company. Ms. Hansen adds, “With Universal Agent, we can enforce standards for the whole operations group. We no longer need additional training for staff members, which raises the efficiency of the whole group.”

Additionally, since Universal Agent is an independent scheduling agent solution, JN Data doesn’t have to worry about compatibility if there is an operating systems upgrade in the future.
