Most organizations have one or more job scheduling solutions that automatically submit and monitor simple batch job or script workflows. However, in many cases typical job schedulers do not handle large, modern, complex, enterprise workloads. Workload Automation (WLA) is a mature evolution of job scheduling that supports much more complex workloads, building on traditional job scheduling tools by adding support for event-driven workload, Web services, composite applications, Service Oriented Architectures (SOAs), virtual infrastructures, enhanced interoperability, and business service alignment. This EMA white paper looks at key automation drivers and the corresponding benefits of WLA, discusses how legacy job scheduling products can prevent organizations from achieving these benefits, and gives organizations advice on both how and why to consolidate on a single, comprehensive WLA solution across the entire enterprise.
