Enterprise Management Associates: Modernizing Workload Automaton
Increasing Business Resiliency and Empowering DevOps With Workload Analytics
While WLA software has matured well past the initial job scheduling functions to become a key component of IT operations automation, WLA tools are more focused on the task of executing, monitoring, and alerting on workloads. Analytics tools, particularly those specifically designed to analyze workload data, allow for the optimization of WLA. However, WLA analytics is often mischaracterized as simply and only WLA optimization. WLA analytics provides a powerful 30,000-foot view of all IT workloads and includes the ability to deep dive into the specifics around every IT outcome important enough to have been defined in and controlled by the WLA software in the first place. The power of WLA analytics actually extends far beyond WLA optimization to include:
- Migration rationalization
- Risk mitigation
- DevOps support
- Business resilience
Terma Software was one of the first organizations to bring predictive analytics and visualization to workload automation, inspiring many companies and products with internal capabilities. Organizations with complex needs or multiple schedulers can quickly exceed the internal analytics capabilities of even the best WLA products, and will benefit from an integrated analytics solution specifically built to optimize and increase visibility around WLA environments.
To better understand the motivations for adopting WLA analytics, along with its uses and benefits, Terma Software engaged Enterprise Management Associates (EMA) to design and conduct a survey of 158 U.S.-based IT and business WLA users during May 2019.
