How Your Workload Automation Strategy Can Drive Growth and Scalability
November 7, 2019 7:25 am
The current trend of increasing job scheduling demands is leaving many enterprises evaluating their ability to accommodate anticipated rates of growth. In the recent Enterprise Management Associates (EMA) report, “Modernizing Workload Automation: Increasing Business Resiliency and Empowering DevOps With Workload Analytics,” respondents were asked to name the key benefits of implementing WLA software. 18% reported that the ability to scale was a key factor in their decision to implement WLA software. 75% of those surveyed confirmed that the number of jobs is quickly increasing, with 10% to 25% annual growth being the most common growth rate reported.
To enable and support growth, businesses are looking to scale–or add revenue at a much greater rate than cost–to their operations to ensure they are handled in a capable, cost-effective manner. Workload Automation (WLA) software can help companies scale their operations by optimizing workloads, and affording businesses the resource of additional time to focus on broader strategy and innovation.
EMA asserts that as a class of software, WLA has successfully adapted to and absorbed new trends. Most vendors have modernized the software to include open application programming interfaces (APIs) that allow users to harness integrations for better control of a wide variety of applications. Still, the most mentioned functional deficiency in the report was ease of integration and a need for more robust APIs. The reality of modern IT, stressed by the drive to digitally transform business processes, has increased the pressure on WLA software to be even more open.
Terma Software empowers customers to meet their growth demands with a universal API, which allows for integration of any vendor’s job scheduling solution into the Terma Software Analytics platform. Terma’s products provide the ability to integrate other data sources into the platform for richer analytics and advanced correlations across operational environments and applications. While WLA tools are focused mainly on the task of executing, monitoring, and alerting on workloads, Terma is highly focused on analyzing the trends and outcomes over time. Analytics tools, particularly those specifically designed to analyze workload data, allow for the optimization of WLA and are a critical operations management tool directly connected to vital business activities. Terma Software provides sophisticated analytics to measure business performance, enabling enterprises to meet the demands of growth and to scale their operations.
