Workload Automation (WA) and Job Scheduling software orchestrates and automates business processes and tasks from a single point of view. Discover more about workload automation and job scheduling and how it can benefit you.
Job Scheduling and Workload Automation are similar, but not identical.
A job scheduler is a tool for automating IT processes. Almost every operating system has its own scheduler; Microsoft Windows features the Windows Task Scheduler while Linux and Unix platforms feature Cron as their job scheduler. Job schedulers take care of business processes and requirements by using data, such as calendar entries and certain time and dates, to run background processes with the help of an IT administrator.
WA is also a solution for automating background processes. It supports multiple business applications and workflows, including cross-systems dependencies. It automates entire business systems, including heterogeneous server environments considering planned activities and information. There is a rapid change from traditional batch-based automation towards real-time workload automation. It integrates available best-of-breed solutions to orchestrate an intelligent decision making process for IT Automation.
As automation tools extend the benefits of job scheduling, you are now able to provide your business with the right information at the right time.
