How Does it Work?
In order to mitigate business risk and speed up the migration process, Elyzium has developed the Workload Migrator. Used by our consultants during any migration project, Workload Migrator provides a pre-conversion analysis and a migration workbench, taking input from any of the supported legacy schedulers to provide IBM Tivoli Workload Scheduler resources, which can then be imported into IBM Tivoli Workload Scheduler (ITWS).
Workload Migrator enables easy migration to ITWS from:
- BMC Control-M
- CA AutoSys
- CA Unicenter
- UNIX/Linux CRON
- Windows Task Scheduler
Why do you need it?
There are many reasons for re-evaluating existing Workload Automation tools that may be in use. Does the existing solution(s) provide a single view? Do the existing tools provide the flexibility the business requires? Are the current tools cost effective? There are many pressures on Workload Automation from both IT and the Business.
Studies have shown that over 70% of the business processes within organisations are near real time. Workload Automation tools have continued to evolve in support of this, whilst the IT application and platform landscape evolves toward providing a foundation for accelerating business change in on-premise, hybrid and cloud environments.
IBM Tivoli Workload Scheduler has moved towards Workload Automation, reflecting the changing demands of a modern business to provide a more dynamic, policy-driven automation platform.
Solutions no longer only manage and schedule jobs, they must also manage mixed workloads based on business policies in an automated fashion to meet service-level objectives.These tools must automate processing requirements based on events, workload, resources and schedules. They must manage dependencies across applications and infrastructure platforms, within applications integrating across on-premise and off-premise environments. Today's solutions:
- Manage workloads using technical policies - for example to meet SLA objectives for performance and availability
- Are able to optimise resources by working with physical and virtual resource pools
- Are built on architectural patterns that facilitate easy, standards-based integration, using SOA principles, across a wide range of platforms and applications
