Tivoli System z Marketing Manager.
Do you need to simplify your ability to manage workload scheduling across z/OS® and distributed? Is the length of your batch processing window too long? With declining numbers of staff and reduced budgets, these are common problems. Add to that a frequent lack of operations knowledge about applications, workloads and dependencies across multiple platforms, cloud and batch, and the increase in workload management can be overwhelming.
IBM has announced new versions of Tivoli Workload Scheduler for z/OS, Tivoli Workload Scheduler and SmartCloud Workload Automation to increase customers ability to automate workload scheduling across z/OS, distributed and cloud. Workload Scheduling and Management is an area that continues to present challenges, especially for customers who need to better manage cloud workloads and shrink their batch windows, while simplifying and automating overall operations. As customers look at supporting the new technologies of Mobile, Big Data and Cloud, workload automation within an overall Enterprise automation strategy will be critical for lowering costs and reducing risks associated with both current operations and new workload development.
New capabilities in the Tivoli® Workload Scheduler for z/OS announced today:
Improved productivity with new scheduling management capability
Simplified scheduling, monitoring and controlling of job execution
Increased flexibility to manage complex job scheduling
Easier migration from other schedulers
Increased flexibility with enhanced ability to meet SLAs
Allowing multiple dependency criteria across applications
