Effective workload automation that provides complete management level visibility into real-time events impacting the delivery of IT services is needed by the data center more than ever before. The traditional job scheduling approach, with an uncoordinated set of tools that often requires reactive manual intervention to minimize service disruptions, is failing more than ever due to todays complex world of IT with its multiple platforms, applications and virtualized resources.
A recent survey of CIOs found that over 75% want to develop an overall information strategy in the next three years, yet over 85% are not close to implementing an enterprise-wide content management strategy. Meanwhile, data runs rampant, slows systems, and impacts performance. Hard-copy documents multiply, become damaged, or simply disappear.
There are success stories of businesses that have implemented Business Service Management (BSM) with well-documented, bottom-line results. What do these organizations know that their discouraged counterparts don't?

Although typically thought of as an artifact of legacy computing, batch processes remain vital to today’s real-time enterprises. Behind the real time systems that power the real time enterprise, such as customer order fulfillment, account management, supply chain scheduling and optimization, or financial trading systems, are regularly-updated back office business systems. Over the years, batch technology has evolved from script-based automation to rules or policy-driven workload automation.
This IDC White Paper presents an overview of key concerns driving IT management and how they translate into needs that can be addressed through modern approaches to job scheduling and workload automation. The paper traces evolutionary trends in job scheduling software, which is growing from traditional batch job schedulers to cross-platform and event-driven capabilities. It also explores the role of job schedulers in providing automation capabilities.
Enterprise Job Scheduling, once the back office function of Operations in the mainframe world, has evolved to become a critical factor in the real time enterprise (RTE). Think you know all there is to know about job scheduling? Take another look and learn how the next generation of job scheduling is evolving into IT Workload Automation, and how CA can help your company realize the real time enterprise.
All things that can be automated will be automated. Beyond the careful choreography of sophisticated workflow, managing myriad simultaneous requests puts unprecedented demand on the software that must schedule and perpetually deliver against well-defined service levels, in real time. Gone are the days of simple batch processing. Welcome to the oh-so-very-flat world that is embracing service-oriented architectures, grid architectures, expansive ecosystems, and end-to-end processing. Workload scheduling has got to grow up.
CA services can help you realize the value of your CA Workload Automation solution more quickly while reducing the overall costs of ownership. We can help you architect, deploy and establish a CA Workload Automation solution that meets your automation needs and business objectives. CA also provides training to improve the productivity of your staff and ongoing support to maximize the value of your software product investment.
