Business Challenges

Multiple user groups place demands on critical business systems and require timely responses and dependability. Most of these transaction demands traverse multiple systems while collecting data from multiple sources. Managing these and other interdependencies at an enterprise level makes it difficult to coordinate business processes end-to-end. This makes issue analysis and resolution difficult and time-consuming. Many IT organizations are rethinking how processes and jobs are managed and are moving toward real-time business workload automation to keep pace with demand. 

Job scheduling once represented a viable way to manage critical data center functions, however many enterprises have evolved past the point where scheduling simple tasks on a single platform at a specific time and date is adequate. Organizations are now challenged to:

  • Respond to thousands of users and requests for cross-platform processing.
  • Meet stringent SLAs.
  • Manage intricate interdependencies.
  • Support infrastructures assembled from both legacy and emerging technologies.
  • Access virtualized resource pools, often in cloud-enabled application infrastructure.
  • Control costs, risks and performance.

Key Outcomes

  • User-friendly interface to manage by exception and quickly assess downstream business impact
  • Simplified definition for schedules and calendars to schedule, run and manage workloads
  • Hassle-free reporting with integration to existing operating system security solutions 

Key Service Features

  • Improve implementation quality by leveraging CA Services expertise
  • Promote user adoption with CA Services support and best practices
