Overall Satisfaction with JAMS

We use JAMS to automate a variety of processes across multiple lines of business. If a process can be automated, we typically put it in JAMS. For example, we've automated generating data for integrations, automated legacy processes that used to require a manual button push, automated sys admin functions like moving files around, etc. We also like the monitoring capabilities of JAMS.

Pros

  • Easily schedule jobs with plain English rules, ie, "1st Monday of the month"
  • Create job dependencies with sequences
  • Easy to use Powershell as well as code from an assembly
  • JAMS has a web interface in addition to a desktop application

Cons

  • If your JAMS instance has hundreds of jobs, it helps to have additional RAM
  • Reduced costs due to automation of previously manual processes
  • JAMS gave us an "automate first" mentality
We use JAMS across multiple lines of business. The jobs that run in JAMS can be as flexible as you can make them.
We haven't had to contact support often. When we have contacted them, they've been very quick to respond and very helpful.

Do you think JAMS delivers good value for the price?

Yes

Are you happy with JAMS's feature set?

Yes

Did JAMS live up to sales and marketing promises?

Yes

Did implementation of JAMS go as expected?

Yes

Would you buy JAMS again?

Yes

JAMS uses both folder-level variables and job-specific parameters, meaning you can deploy the same code to multiple instances (Prod, Staging, Dev, Test, etc.) but target different databases and servers.

PowerShell jobs are particularly easy to write and run in JAMS.

JAMS allows for Execution Methods to be created. These are just references to assemblies. If you already have a custom application, you can refer to an assembly file from your existing codebase via an execution method, and then automate a process that is in your application's codebase with very little additional work.

    Hi Robert, Thank you for the great feedback. I am curious if there are any custom Execution Methods your organization is using that you feel would mesh well with the default Execution Methods that come with JAMS. Regards, Louis

    Thanks for the question. I don't think so - our custom execution methods are typically wrapping code from legacy systems in order to create automations, so those would be sufficient to our industry and applications. I think what ships with JAMS is more than sufficient.
