JAMS for Legacy Modernization
Your organization has made the critical decision to migrate critical business processes
and applications off the mainframe and onto a distributed platform. Whether it was
for technical or economical reasons, you now face the daunting task of ensuring
that you have all of the same capabilities you had when working with JES and JCL.
you will quickly discover is that Windows and Linux lack robust and flexible enterprise
job scheduling capabilities. Windows Task Scheduler
and Cron simply won’t cut it when you need to ensure
mission critical processes execute on time and with reliability. JAMS brings
mainframe-like scheduling capabilities to the distributed world but leaves behind
the costs and complexities of mainframe software.
- Provides robust mainframe-like scheduling similar to JCL, and JES2.
- Monitors, manages, and triggers dependencies between mainframe and distributed platform
processes. Complete audit trail documents the workflow.
- Imports jobs directly into JAMS from various external sources.
- Real-time status of all jobs from a centralized JAMS console.
- Offers flexible calendaring options including JAMS ability to understand natural
language date specifications.
Modernize JCL with .NET Framework Automation Capabilities
As you port your applications to .NET, JAMS will integrate seamlessly without requiring
an expensive and time-consuming conversion of your existing code. Leveraging the
.NET framework, JAMS enables you to maintain complex batch processes, with features
such as triggers, dependencies, and load balancing in all your scheduled tasks.
JAMS also provides comprehensive authentication support so that a user can run a
job without having to grant that user Admin rights. Learn more about the
automation features in JAMS.
Flexible Control from a Command Line AND a GUI
No longer are you tied to a legacy mainframe interface to create and maintain your
business processes. If you still want to work from a command line, never fear -
JAMS offers the industry’s most powerful PowerShell Provider
as well as more than 60 PowerShell cmdlets. At the same time, if you are looking
to move to an easy-to-use GUI (pictured), JAMS offers ‘fill-in-the -blank’ parameters
to walk you through setting up your schedule. JAMS leverages the skills already
available in your IT department to build more powerful business applications.
