SEA’s workload automation software helps you improve the overall efficiency of your batch job operations and maintain consistently high levels of service. By adding SEA’s intelligent workload automation to your System z environment, you are able to:
Raise the Maturity Level of Your Batch Operations
Workload automation puts more mature methods in place, including a consistent set of controls and procedures, to enable best practices and accommodate changing business needs. This improves the overall efficiency of your batch operations, enabling mission-critical business processes to be completed on time and error-free.
Ensure High Quality-of-Service Levels
Workload automation enables you to monitor and manage the batch processes more effectively to meet service objectives. Higher levels of availability and reductions in slowdowns and disruptions are achieved. Maintaining a consistently high level of efficiency enables you to more easily meet your quality-of-service goals and commitments (Service Level Agreements) and provide the best service to your customers.
Cross Platform Automation Support
Extend Control from the Mainframe to other platforms with our universal middleware framework. SEA provides an advanced Middleware Technology allowing its middleware solutions to effortlessly integrate with other Automation Solutions that operate in other dissimilar environments such as Linux, Unix, Windows and IBM i. This middleware framework provides a universal communication bridge and intelligence that enables any product and/or application to implement advanced automated solutions, deliver an effective Enterprise Automation Solution and, most importantly, eliminate new product investments and/or migration efforts.
Maximize Resource Utilization
By automating routine tasks, like Job scheduling and Console management, you are able to achieve more cost-effective use of IT resources. Intelligent automation reduces the strain on your resources (CPUs, etc.) and enables you to get more out of the resources you have in place without having to add additional resources.
Through intelligent workload automation, overall productivity of IT personnel is raised and computing resources are used more efficiently. Monitoring and managing business processes that span multiple platforms across the entire IT environment is challenging, and workload automation enables more efficient management of business processes that is extendable across all platforms.
Ease Regulatory Compliance
Establishing consistent controls and procedures enables you to more easily manage the information necessary to meet compliance requirements (Sarbanes Oxley, etc.).
Proactively Identify and Correct Problems
Workload automation enables you to analyze, identify, and correct, in advance, failures and slowdowns before your service levels and customers are impacted.
Reduce Operational Costs
Eliminating and correcting inefficiencies in your batch operations, adding quality-improving measures on an ongoing basis, doing more with fewer resources, and minimizing disruptions and downtime all reduce ongoing operational costs. Cost savings also are gained through an efficient migration from a less efficient and more expensive preexisting solution.
