Overall Satisfaction with JAMS

We use Jams for the Job Automation and Processing. The File processing and Data ingestion into our Database is very critical for the success of our business and some of these files we receive from Vendors is nightly and has to be processed in a Sequential order and has to be processed both On-prem and in the cloud. We have automated these processes using Jams Tool
  • The WorkFlow Modules in Jams has helped tremendously with the Sequential processing of the files
  • Multiple Execution options from Powervshell to SQL stored procedures to SSIS packages makes it easy for legacy code executions
  • The Alert Notifications to page someone when a job failed is extremely useful
  • We could definitely use some better import Export features coming from other tools especially Automate since both are owned now by the same company
  • While submitting setups if you want to submit and select/Unselect only a few jobs a Select/Unselect all feature could be helpful
  • We have had Positive Impact on Business operations and nightly operations to go smooth
  • our Ingestion happens in a timely manner and having all the data imported and Reports ready and backups to be monitored and alerted of failures all have a net positive effect on our operations
Jams Customer Support has been Excellent. They are available to provide immediate support in case of issues needing immediate response and ensuring that the issue, questions is completely resolved to our Satisfaction.

Do you think JAMS delivers good value for the price?


Are you happy with JAMS's feature set?


Did JAMS live up to sales and marketing promises?


Did implementation of JAMS go as expected?

I wasn't involved with the implementation phase

Would you buy JAMS again?


Its been well suited where Automation is used. Soem older legacy modules/companies used in built or Nightly Ops people to ensure processing happened in a timely and correct order, Jams does it best without a need for a fulltime FTE doing that.
