Evolution of Workload Automation

A large number of IT processes enabled by IT are scheduled rather than being done in real time. However, traditional time-based schedulers have been eclipsed by event-based schedulers that respond in real time to business orders instead of doing them by batch. This new breed of event-driven schedulers have necessarily evolved to include things like dynamic resource management to make sure that resources are always available to fulfill business processes as necessary.

Workload automation tools are capable of handling event-based scheduling and resource management across a complex amalgam of applications, databases and architectures, both physical and virtual.


One of the biggest benefits of a comprehensive workload automation tool is that replaces the jumble of application-specific schedulers. It also provides IT administrators with a single enterprise-wide view of workload requirements across the enterprise. This enterprise-wide view allows administrators to plan for business events like marketing promotions that might otherwise overwhelm IT system resources.
