Companies purchase Terma products to address challenges inherent in their underlying workload processing. Terma products provide immediate out-of-the-box solutions to workload failures and inefficiencies, which would otherwise require months or years for companies to develop on their own. Nonetheless, customers most likely will not enjoy the full extent of the benefits of Terma broad software offerings if they do not strategically implement and manage them. Doing so requires a thorough understanding of both the software’s capabilities, as well as the objectives for using the software products to begin with.
A couple years ago, a large U.S.-based bank with a complex workload environment decided to outsource their workload development efforts to an offshore service provider, while keeping their workload operations team in-house.

When a company adds new workload processes, this can often present a host of challenges for development and operations teams. Needless to say, several challenges ensued.
Terma Software recently released a new software update that takes its already powerful automation and prediction capabilities to a whole new level.

Financial companies rely on sophisticated workload and analytic computing environments that integrate up-to-the-minute, if not up-to-the-second, information regarding the financial markets. This data is actually housed and managed through multiple workload software vendors such as IBM and CA, for example, and their associating platforms. Find out how Terma Software analyzes and monitors batch processing from the beginning of the workload to the end of the workload.
