Product Manager - IBM Tivoli Workload Automation .
Do you need to simplify the integration between different tools in your data center? And get rid of all scripts that you have implemented (for example, scripts to create tickets for workload failures)? Do you wish to simplify your day-by-day operations, and have you ever looked at using self-service catalogs and mobile connection to enhance operation efficiency?
IBM helps you to accomplish that. You will be able to automatically get trouble tickets for workload errors, eliminating customer-coded solutions and saving time and money. Similarly, you are given the possibility to automate the provisioning of additional servers to manage unexpected workload peaks or errors.
To accomplish the above automation scenarios, IBM adheres to the “Open Services for Lifecycle Collaboration” (OSLC), an open community which offers a standardized method to build an easier and more effective communication between operation tools in the software lifecycle.
Your day-by-day operations will be not only simplified by eliminating scripts or vendor-specific API created to connect workflows, but also with a number of features implemented to speed up and simplify the user experience.For example, you will be able to simply your access to workload outputs, and this will help you make historical analysis, evaluate errors and compare execution time.
Workload automation self-service catalogs and dashboards are now available on mobile devices, to guarantee autonomy to business users and reduce the pressure initiated by business units and their development organizations.This ones, and other new capabilities are provided to empower the operation staff with a more effective and immediate control over mixed workloads and system resources.
All of the above is provided with the new IBM Tivoli Workload Scheduler for z/OS v9.2 version, delivered on March 14th. The new v9.2 version represents another step forward in the effort to accommodate the new flood of requirements spawned by business unit driven projects, such as cloud, big data, analytics, and mobility. As the IBM Tivoli Workload Scheduler for z/OS Product Manager, I have seen customers working to simplify big data projects, or take advantage from mobile, and these new capabilities should really help them.
The new version also proves the technical vitality of IBM that continues to enhance and modernize the Tivoli Workload Scheduler for z/OS offering, together with the whole IBM Tivoli Workload Scheduler and Automation portfolio.
