DevOps is a process approach that addresses optimization and engages all stakeholders involved in the development, delivery, and use of software. To fully realize the benefits of DevOps and optimize mission critical processes, companies need effective cross-functional collaboration in addition to rapid problem identification and resolution. In the world of Workload Automation, this can be challenging to achieve without the right tools and processes in place.

Last week, members of our team represented Terma Software at ASAP University in Dallas, TX. This was our third year in a row presenting as subject matter experts at the annual IBM Workload Scheduler (IWS) user gathering. Unable to attend? We’re happy to describe the educational sessions we participated in and provide an overview of the Workload Automation topics we covered with the IWS community.

Companies that use both AutoSys and CA7 in their workload environment can now view workload processes across these schedulers as a consolidated single jobstream, or process, using TermaUNIFY. In addition to increased cross-platform visibility, companies now enjoy support for workload dependencies between AutoSys and CA7.

Terma Software is excited to announce its return as a subject matter expert at ASAP University, an annual conference of IBM Workload Scheduler (IWS) users. Before Terma Software released their workload analytics solution for IWS last year, the IWS customer base lacked visibility into complex, multi-vendor and multi-platform workload environments. Fortunately, Terma’s AIOps platform has been able to address this pain point for IWS users, thanks to its single-pane-of-glass view across job schedulers and distributed and mainframe environments.

For more than ten years, we here at Terma Software have been down in the trenches of Workload Automation. If there’s something that could go wrong with the management of a job scheduling system, then we’ve seen it before. Here are just a few examples of the ways we’ve been able to help our customers significantly improve their workload management.

Multi-scheduler environments are challenging to manage effectively without visibility into interdependent workload processes. With the release of TermaUNIFY 5.8.2, companies using both AutoSys and CA 7 can now experience the benefits of end-to-end jobstream visibility across the two platforms, thanks to Terma's single-pane-of-glass capability.

When done correctly and for the right reasons, outsourcing IT operations teams can be an effective way to increase productivity and efficiency in a business. By handing over certain tasks and processes to an outside contractor, internal stakeholders are able to focus on more important activities that will help grow the business without sacrificing service levels or quality. Unfortunately, these benefits become more difficult to achieve when outsourcing is combined with workload automation.

Migrations can be risky, complex, and costly. Terma Software’s workload analytics solution can often correct inefficiencies in an existing job scheduling system without the need to go through a costly and risky migration. However, if the driving factors behind a conversion cannot be overcome, Terma's new Migration Program can reduce conversion costs, minimize risk, and provide a smooth transition.

Terma Software recently developed an eBook with IBM Systems on how to predict major problems and optimize complex mainframe workloads. Fortune 1,000 companies, especially in the financial services industry, struggle to manage complex, mission-critical workloads. Without the proper controls and processes to prevent workload-related delays or stoppages, companies are at risk of jeopardizing business processes and, ultimately, their bottom lines.
