OUR CORE PLATFORM
A unified platform for centralized management and control of job scheduling across business, operations and IT processes. Tidal Automation Platform >
Using Tidal, teams can schedule and automate a wide range of jobs, including batch jobs, job processing, data loads, database maintenance, spools, and other routine tasks. With Tidal’s intuitive user interface, scheduling across ERP systems and other applications is as easy as dragging and dropping. You can even use Tidal’s range of pre-built job scheduling templates to get up and running lightning quick.
Job steps and job definitions in Tidal and SAP are similar but have a few key differences. Tidal provides a more abstract, high-level view of job workflows. This enables users to define job definitions that can include multiple job steps and dependencies. In SAP ERP, there is more granular control with exection, however that is limited only to automated processes that reside within SAP, whereas Tidal can automate processes across your entire environment.
Tidal differs from Redwood and Stonebranch in a few key areas. First, Tidal’s user interface is modern and intuitive with drag-and-drop job scheduling and management, while Stonebranch relies on manual configuration. Tidal offers more advanced features for job dependency management and has a broader set of out-of-the-box integrations than Stonebranch. While Tidal and Redwood offer more flexible pricing, Stonebranch is more rigid in their policies.
Tidal specializes in working with large enterprises and organizations that have complex IT environments, so provides more advanced process automation capabilities than Redwood’s RunMyJobs.
