Integrations for JD Edwards: Job Scheduler

Leverage true enterprise workload automation to orchestrate JD Edwards with your other systems in complex, multi-application enterprise environments.

By integrating a JD Edwards scheduler into their toolset, teams can leverage advanced batch job scheduling features and processing options, dashboards for enhanced visibility, and enjoy better user experience by reducing repetitive manual tasks,

ERP Adapter Overview

IT operations that focus on the automation of business processes need to integrate with a wide range of custom and enterprise scheduler applications.

Oftentimes, enterprise infrastructure comes with complex dependencies. In these environments, IT teams can use job scheduling tools to control batch jobs and on demand event processing. These tasks are vital to the success of a range of business operations from sales to manufacturing to financial management.

For decades, Tidal has been defining the standard for job scheduling usability, scalability and breadth of coverage. The role of the adapters available for Tidal Automation is to make connectivity, control and visibility of diverse technologies accessible directly through the Tidal platform interface.

Our comprehensive set of adapters provides broad coverage for popular applications and systems used by businesses and our seamless integration simplifies end-to-end scheduling of processes across the enterprise.

More About the ERP Adapter

Integrating JD Edwards EnterpriseOne ERP

In order to increase competitive advantage, businesses are investing in scheduler applications that improve operational efficiency, such as JD Edwards EnterpriseOne solutions.

These ERP applications manage critical data selection from various functional areas, including financials, inventory, procurement, and order fulfillment. While the JD Edwards scheduler can manage native batch processes, it is not built to accommodate enterprise-wide scheduling environments.

This ERP adapter is designed for the unique needs of the JD Edwards application suite, and functions as the communications interface between Tidal Automation and the JD Edwards EnterpriseOne process management engine. Together, this toolset provides IT organizations with robust cross-platform, cross-application scheduling functionality, real-time interactivity, and centralized control.

Simplify Job Scheduling With Tidal Automation

With the Tidal Automation ERP Adapter for JD Edwards EnterpriseOne, customers can add automation, manageability and reliability of the Tidal software solution to leading ERP scheduler applications.

With Tidal, IT teams can manage all workload processes within the JD Edwards EnterpriseOne environment from a centralized dashboard and integrate those processes into the broader Tidal scheduling environment. Leveraging Tidal’s advanced smart scheduler, automation features, and centralized management immediately translates into lower training costs and the consolidation of scheduling resources. The result: reduced errors and increased productivity.

ERP Adapter for JD Edwards Scheduler

Once implemented, the ERP adapter allows users to define, launch, monitor and control JDE scheduling processes using Universal Batch Engine (UBE), which is then used to execute these processes.

The JDE scheduler integration enables users to quickly resolve job failures, incorporate multiple cross-application dependencies, and utilize process models for JD Edwards UBE programs. The ERP adapter submits the predefined JD Edwards processes into the job queue and monitors the status of each process as it runs. In addition, the adapter facilitates the distribution of JD Edwards reports through its advanced notifications capabilities.

Modifications to the JD Edwards environment are unnecessary because Tidal uses both UBE and the APIs in the JD Edwards EnterpriseOne application suite. Native JD Edwards function calls are used for the integration.

JD Edwards Job Scheduler Features and Benefits

Tidal’s JD Edwards scheduler integration has successfully delivered rapid ROI to organizations investing in JD Edwards software solutions.

It brings JDE job scheduling into an enterprise context and provides greater automation, visibility, control, and reliability. The following capabilities are crucial to driving the benefits that users can expect from this software solution:

Universal Workload Management

Workload management is an essential part of any ERP software solution because it allows critical transactions from various databases and scheduler applications to occur at the right time, every time.

Tidal Automation provides immediate problem detection, and in many cases, automatically launches error resolution steps, enabling JD Edwards EnterpriseOne/World services to be delivered efficiently and accurately.

Event-Driven Processing

In addition to time- and date-based job scheduling, Tidal’s ERP adapter can dynamically introduce single jobs and entire workloads into a schedule when triggered by business events from other adapters and platform-supported agents.

Users can also define events for notifications, like triggering an automated response through email and/or inserting additional jobs into the schedule.

Flexible Monitoring and Alerting

Job status and output is automatically logged and can be viewed using the Tidal Automation dashboard. Notifications can be automatically sent to browser-enabled devices for anytime, anywhere status updates and can be configured to initiate process recovery steps to increase runtime. Automated actions are extensive and easily defined with Tidal’s smart scheduler.

IT Policy Alignment

Each job can contain several process definitions that support granular controls and error recovery procedures, making it possible for IT teams to consistently follow documented best practices.

Information Technology Infrastructure Library (ITIL) business processes for request fulfillment, incident management, and change management are supported. This can include interfaces and integration techniques for a range of ITIL-oriented operations environments.

Robust Security and Audit Capabilities

The integrated security features of the Tidal platform provide secure management and support the use of required security credentials.

Tidal can orchestrate JD Edwards scheduled workflows whether they are running on-premises or in the cloud.

  • What does a job scheduler do?

    A job scheduler is a software solution used for automating and managing the scheduling and execution of various computer-related tasks or jobs. It allows users to set up a list of tasks, or job queue, to be executed at specific times or intervals, and can handle dependencies and conditions for executing jobs.

    Job schedulers perform a variety of tasks like running backups, generating reports, performing system maintenance, and processing data selection. They are particularly useful in large-scale computing environments where many different jobs are running simultaneously.
