Job Scheduling for IBM i Systems
Halcyon’s Advanced Job Scheduler enables organizations to schedule highly complex job streams and track them across different IBM i systems or across other platforms to ensure business processes are running smoothly, at the optimum time and at maximum efficiency.
The solution is functionally rich and easy to use and has unique support for iASPs (independent auxiliary storage pools). The new browser-based user interface enables you to schedule and track your jobs using the internet and your mobile devices, such as smart phones and tablets.
Advanced Job Scheduler is available as a stand-alone product or as part of Halcyon's Level 4 suite offering - Operations Centre Suite.
Greater Visibility and Control
The browser-based interface modernizes and presents an additional, alternative option to the traditional green screen view by displaying information in an easy to understand format that can be accessed from any device capable of running an internet browser. With familiar and intuitive Windows style layouts and drop-down menus, it is user configurable with a choice of color schemes and enables you to quickly and easily navigate and access data.
The web-enabled interface means that help desk support staff or IT managers without IBM i skills can see a “live” view of what’s going on, including any amended schedules or job failures that could impact the business.
If jobs have failed to run as expected, IT teams can quickly and easily diagnose if there is a pattern and rectify accordingly. You can also easily view details of jobs that will run in the future.
Tighter control of operations can be achieved by authorized staff being able to remotely view and control jobs through the web or their mobile devices.
