Use Cases with Workload Schedulers
Legacy scheduling products present a special challenge. IT processing problems can be difficult to manage or even identify because the schedulers themselves are not sufficient on their own to address today’s growing complexity. Constant changes, unpredictable events, and dynamic demands by end users are all happening at an unprecedented rate.
All too often we have seen that problems are not detected until they have grown out of control. If these issues are not resolved quickly the result can be downtime, which can be crippling to any organization. Implementing Terma’s Suite of Products in your workload environment assures that you have the knowledge essential to keep your systems up and running reliably and efficiently.
Who depends on Terma’s Suite of Workload Analytics Products?
- A large global bank using CA AutoSys and CA 7 job schedulers depends on TermaUNIFY to to provide “single pane of glass” monitoring across these schedulers and the platforms they run on for better visibility and predictive alerting using a common interface for managing them. Without TermaUNIFY, TermaVISION, and TermaINSIGHT the bank would require two difference staffs to manage this environment. The Terma solution also helps DevOps and Operations communicate more efficiently due to the ability of Terma’s product to align processes and standardize workload terminology.
- An international bank has literally 500,000+ jobs defined in their CA 7 scheduler with more than 1,000,000 job runs per 24 hours. That’s a lot. Prior to implementing TermaUNIFY they had an avoidable failure that resulted in significant downtime and enormous penalties. Now they depend on TermaUNIFY to predict issues before they occur – minimizing risk, and revealing optimization opportunities and root causes of incidents.
- A financial services customer has a total of 25,000 jobs defined to their Tidal Workload Automation and every single job is critical! They depend on TermaUNIFY and its predictive capabilities to alert them in advance of any potential delay or failure in their job flows. Furthermore this customer implemented BI-reporting through TermaINSIGHT.
- A manufacturer using CA AutoSys depends on TermaUNIFY to ‘keep the line moving’ by alerting systems administrators to potential delays in the processing of shipments. Having the predictive capabilities of TermaUNIFY helps ensure that the parts needed to keep production flowing are where they need to be, when they need to be there.
Terma technology solutions are used by hundreds of customers worldwide, comprising some of the largest scheduling environments and other smaller installations who have the need to proactively deal with any incidents in their IT workload environments as well as optimize for most efficiency. We would be happy to put you in touch with some of our customers across industries who face the same issues that you do.
Terma’s technology solutions currently address IBM’s Workload Scheduler (IWS), CA 7, CA AutoSys, and Tidal Workload Automation. Additionally, our platform can support any scheduler through our Universal API. We have integrated many customers open source, in house developed, and thrid party schedulers using our API. Currently in development is support for BMC’s Control-M and several other vendors’ workload automation platforms.
