Overall Satisfaction with JAMS

Automation of database loads and extracts, customer file delivery and notifications, report creation, server software maintenance, Windows service maintenance, log archiving, SFTP transfers, FIX messaging, software deployment, compliance and risk processing, and notifications.

Pros

  • The JAMS Client is very user friendly.
  • Creation of scheduled processes is very simple, but also extremely customizable.
  • Monitoring current and upcoming processes using the Monitor tool puts everything in a single, easy-to-read window.
  • Viewing job history and compiling statistics for each job done for you.

Cons

  • The ability to customize the way jobs appear on the monitor would be nice.
  • Training teams going from one JAMS version to the next would be helpful (we went from 6 to 7, and there are quite a lot of differences).
  • JAMS has automated the process of statement creation for all customers, greatly reducing man-hours associated with the task.
  • JAMS has automated AWS instance starts/stops, which has allowed us to stop servers when not in use to save money.
We have a lot of processes that run on many machines. The licensing that limits the number of agents available to us and the way in which the agents are managed in JAMS can make adding new servers challenging.
In every support ticket I've submitted, I've received very prompt and complete responses to my questions.

Yes

Did implementation of JAMS go as expected?

No

Would you buy JAMS again?

Yes

JAMS is very well-suited for script automation and scheduling. It is less well suited for environments with few processes running on a large number of servers.
