Workload Automation Software

Workload Automation Software Overview

What is Workload Automation Software?

Workload Automation has developed from job scheduling software for running batch processes like payroll, processing inventory levels for re-stock, credit count account processing etc.

Workload Automation Software Features & Capabilities

  • Ability to manage a business process from end-to-end

  • Central dashboard providing data on trends and forecasts

  • Audit trails/logging to ensure regulatory compliance

  • Management by exception alerts and notifications

  • Analysis and visualization tools to help prioritize response

  • Application of a broad range of enterprise applications

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.

Benefits

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.
