Tidal Explorer Features

Calendar Explorer: Calendar Design and Visualization & Calendar Change Impact Analysis

Transparently identifies changes to Tidal jobs, triggers, and node outages that directly reference a revised calendar. You can immediately see the potential impact of a calendar change on Tidal entities.

Schedule Comparison

Helps you detect variations between schedule components and job structures quickly and accurately. You can see differences in job definitions, job dependencies, and job events. Easy-to-understand graphical views help to highlight differences between in-job structure and dependency chains.

Tidal Explorer™ supports Tidal workload automation database migrations with full-table comparisons of jobmst, jobdtl, jobbed, evntmst and usrmst tables between original and migrated Tidal instances.

Schedule Export

Exports Tidal component definitions directly to Microsoft® Excel or XML formats. Adds job structures (including parent and child jobs) and export-related custom metadata to the export process.

Schedule DevOps and Change Management

Facilitates improved DevOps and controlled Change Management of mission-critical Tidal schedules. You can fast-track the analysis, planning, and communication of schedule changes and new schedule developments to accelerate time-to-value for new workflows. Build your change plans using job hierarchy data, and use our “Compare” function to verify that (1) all planned changes have been made, and (2) there are no unplanned changes.
