The concept of Workload Automation is an evolution of traditional job schedulers which needed to react to the dynamic demands of IT. Workload automation needs to be able to coordinate—in real-time—a varied set of workload types with complex dependencies across a broad spectrum of operating systems and application platforms.
A scheduling model based only upon calendar events is not sufficient to meet the demands of today’s automated data centers. The requirement for batch submission of workloads driven by date/time dependencies still exists, but on-demand IT processing requirements have expanded job submission triggers far beyond the time dimension.
Workload Automation solutions should provide: a service-oriented architecture (SOA); integration capabilities at the application services level for web services and Java EE-based applications; a service-level orientation for managing workloads and finally, a critical path analysis and reporting capabilities.
