CA Scheduler Job Management

Job scheduling software for the IBM Mainframe is quite mature and most IBM Mainframe sites would already have one installed. It would appear to be very little reason to change from one scheduling package to another. If you were looking for a new scheduling package, CA Technologies is more likely to steer you towards their other product

CA Workload Automation

CA Workload Automation is well suited for firms having to manage and monitor multiple applications operating in multiple environments. and having SLA requirements. CA Workload Automation is less appropriate and not cost-effective for non-critical applications and/or jobs. CA Workload Automation is ideal for companies that require reliable and stable Production support for their business critical jobs to finish on time.
