Use Case - Manufacturing
Customer since 2019 – This Fortune 500 company manufactures specialty heavy commercial and emergency vehicles for customers globally
Multiple siloed schedulers and instances causing errors and downtime
Inefficiencies in cost, time and labor for scheduling, maintenance and training
Failures not known until jobs completed
The company needed to integrate JD Edwards (JDE) and mainframe workloads into enterprise processes. The existing workload automation solution was unable to support seamless integration of these technologies, even after significant custom work. As a result, the Operations team wrestled with multiple schedulers and instances.
There were inefficiencies in cost, time and labor associated with learning and maintaining the various schedulers and ETL failures were common. With errors not seen until a job completed and manual troubleshooting, SLAs were often breached and staff worked most weekends.
