Applause for Workload Automation Analytics!
Last week Terma had the pleasure of attending both the Boston and New York user groups for Cisco's Tidal Enterprise Scheduler. The reception and need for Workload Automation Analytics was overwhelmingly positive! So much so that we received a enthusiastic round of applause.
What seemed to raise the most eyebrows was JAWS' ability to present predictive analytics for TES users. The groups saw high value in the ability to proactively manage the performance of their Jobstreams in any easy to consume gantt-chart view. As workload automation continues to drive the business, the need to meet job schedling SLA's is becoming increasingly more important.
Some questions to ponder:
- How do you ensure jobs complete on time?
- What jobs are in the critical path of your SLA driven target job?
- If a job fails, what is the downstream impact?
- How do you predict job scheduling performance issues before they occur?
