Overall Satisfaction with JAMS

Right now we are just demoing JAMS, but we would use it to schedule roughly 5,000 unique jobs a day. Anywhere from sending files via FTP, creating files, processing shipping files. We also run SQL jobs that keep our databases clean. The JAMS client seems very user friendly and support has been great in trying to help us learn how to use it. It's not overly complicated to use, just different from what we are used to.
  • Easy to Navigate
  • Change jobs on the fly
  • Look ahead at what's scheduled
  • The web interface is a bit clunky
  • It would be nice to have all connections in one central location. SQL agents and connections are located in different tabs.
  • By default it would be nice to have a day view of all jobs scheduled.
  • I believe scheduling software saves us 3-4 bodies
  • I have not used it long enough to say much else.
I don't have enough information to go on, but for the things we have been testing, I have not come across any road blocks.
The support I have had to deal with so far has been great. Scott was excellent and everyone else has been very helpful.
It's just different. The views are different, how you set it up is different. It's not good or bad, just different. I think JAMS offers more options when it comes to how jobs run. Like you can use sequence, or setup a job to run based on a number of different dependencies.

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?


Would you buy JAMS again?


In the limited time I have had to work with JAMS, it has been very easy to schedule SQL jobs and the types of jobs we run as a company. We do use a product called Ecometry that's very old. I have a support ticket open to make sure JAMS will work with it, but from what I have found it actually integrates better than our current software.
