Terma is excited to announce the upcoming release of our GA version of IWS support. This release for Terma’s workload analytics platform brings the power of advanced predictive analytics to the IWS user community. IWS users will experience unprecedented capabilities for effectively managing workloads in IWS as well as across multiple platforms. Moreover, this release will help IWS users and their respective businesses better visualize, analyze, and optimize their workload environments. “We recognize the needs of IWS users are incredibly important, and as a result, we are delivering groundbreaking visualization for the IWS mainframe and distributed environments that will empower users to better manage workloads in a dramatically more optimized manner,’ says Terma Software CEO Shane Hade.
It’s not uncommon today for organizations to run multi-platform workload environments that consist of both IWS and other vendors’ job schedulers such as AutoSys, ControlM, or CA 7. These workloads will execute thousands to hundreds of thousands of critical jobs daily with several SLA-driven dependencies crossing between IWS and other vendors’ job schedulers. Yet, organizations currently cannot effectively visualize these highly important dependencies across platforms. This is a major problem.
Without visualization, both issue prediction and resolution in workloads is extremely cumbersome as root cause analysis is very difficult and highly time-consuming. Furthermore, when organizations aren’t able to quickly and effectively prevent and troubleshoot workload issues, their SLAs are at risk. Such situations open the doors for significant negative events to occur, with potentially wide-sweeping business implications, including loss of revenue or rise in costs or both.
Enter Terma Software. Through Terma Analytics Platform, Terma Software offers the only cross-vendor/cross-platform workload solution on the market that provides prediction, visualization, and analysis across IWS or multi-platform environments. This ‘Single Pane of Glass’ technology allows for companies to view the entire job stream in one place. Hade continues, “what’s powerful about this technology is that if a job stream, for example, starts in AutoSys and ends in IWS, or vice versa, an organization can have complete visibility of the job stream.”
As a result of Terma’s ‘Single Pane of Glass’ capability, businesses can manage their workloads as well as their businesses much more effectively. Organizations that utilize Terma’s cross-platform technology are able to more easily and quickly identify the root cause of a negative event, understand the SLA impact, and drastically reduce downtime of such an event. Beyond that, companies can actually prevent negative service outages and significant negative events before they even occur, eliminating many workload issues that result in loss of revenue or increase in costs.
