If your job scheduler is making your job more difficult, it might be time to migrate.
Why Migrate to a New Job Scheduler?
Legacy job schedulers are often designed to support specific platforms and systems and can be heavily reliant on scripts. Which means that using a legacy scheduler to support a new technology or application requires researching, writing, and testing complex scripts. Which is time-consuming, error-prone, and the least scalable thing IT can do.
Whether native or home-grown, legacy job schedulers are limited in what they can offer modern, dynamic organizations because they lack the integration capabilities required to quickly build and automate complex workflows.
That’s problematic in an era of rapid digital evolution. IT needs to be able to quickly pivot to support shifting business goals and to leverage new digital tools to stay ahead of competition. This requires building end-to-end workflows that include integrated, automated processes that span a variety of applications, systems, and tools, without the need for custom scripting.
