I would only recommend using AWS Batch in a situation where using AWS Lambda isn't an option with the organization. AWS Batch is a very slow software in comparison to relying on. Often your Batch data will keep on expiring while Batch is still running. For someone with quick response time requirements in automation, AWS Batch is not an ideal tool.

Any company that has talented C# .NET developers would greatly benefit from using JAMS by extending it with custom execution methods. Also, if you have ample PowerShell experience or simple needs that are met by the built-in methods, you'll do well. Companies without developers who can help create custom execution methods or PowerShell scripts to execute jobs won't get as much out of JAMS.

  • Needs more built-in execution methods, and the existing methods need improvements.
  • Canceling and rerunning jobs needs clearer interface.
  • History search window needs folder browser.
  • Need to be able to move jobs and folders around, like a file explorer interface.

      As stated earlier I had an issue with implementing an upgrade to an agent on a remote server. I opened a ticket and received a response within minutes. The issue was quickly resolved and all was secure and running smoothly within the hour. Previously I had an error on a local maintenance job. They were able to look at the situation and provide a resolution without delays in the scheduling.

      We wanted to start everything on a scale & with fewer resources to manage the underlying infrastructure.

      Tidal and Tivoli are great solutions for very large organizations with deep pockets. I have worked with them as an end-user but was not in a position to extend the platforms, so I can't speak to their capability to be extended with custom code as JAMS can with custom execution methods. I selected JAMS due to its cost and flexibility.

      We are running JAMS on a small VM server. I know I will not reach the limits of what this one server can handle. We are optimistic that our growth can be maintained in JAMS without further investment. Reviewing the monitoring on my SQL Servers I can see the performance increases when I moved the scheduling out of SQL Server Agent Jobs. Since we've had JAMS we've increased the number of jobs we run daily with little effort to configure the workflows. For those that run hundreds of thousands of jobs per day, there are options to have High Availability with load balancing.

      Return on Investment

      Amazon AWS

      • Able to Schedule regular copy of S3 Instances regularly.
      • Better security of data.
      • Long waiting times resulted in hurdles while autoscaling.

      • Our file processing department has stayed at 2 employees, though we have doubled in size. These employees no longer perform manual procedures but instead monitor and respond to JAMS automation issues.
      • We have made better use of our BI platform (QlikView, Qlik Sense, and NPrinting) by stringing together extract, model, view, and reporting jobs into sequences.
      • We have implemented change window processes. IT staff can easily stop all automated jobs from running across all integrated systems, for work that needs to be done during maintenance windows
