With IBM i under-pinning key business applications for so many enterprises, it’s fair to say that there’s never been a stronger argument for deploying automated operations software as an enabler for improved systems reliability, robustness and accountability.
Do you ever face the challenges of:
Spending too much time managing jobs that are run manually?
Continually monitoring jobs manually to check for problems or completion?
Running jobs for hours, yet unaware of failure?
Needing to assess the impact of failed jobs?
Delaying system availability due to poorly managed system backups?
Contending with user frustrations as system availability isn’t as high as it should or needs to be?
Being unable to manage spool files, their distribution and archiving?
