Marketing Technology Firm Chooses MVP Systems’ JAMS Job Scheduler to Automate Tasks
and Comply with SAS 70 and SSAE 16 Standards
Harry Reisenleiter, VP Communications
Marketing Associates streamlines IT operations with JAMS and delivers SAS 70 and
SSAE 16 compliant services to its customers.
22 May 2012 – MVP Systems Software, Inc., a leading provider of
enterprise job scheduling and workload automation software,
announced today that it has added Marketing Associates to its growing list of customers.
The Detroit based firm produces real time integrated marketing platforms for auto
manufacturers, technology companies and major consumer brands.
Prior to implementing JAMS, Marketing Associates had automated IT batch processes
across different systems using a combination of Windows Task Scheduler and Cron
together with UNIX and Linux Shell, Perl, Python, Java and PowerShell scripts. In
addition, they used an outsourcer to fill in the gaps. As the demand for custom
marketing applications and reporting grew, however, this hodgepodge of tools and
services became difficult to manage.
Along with streamlining its IT operations, Marketing Associates is also committed
to strong adherence to AICPA accounting standards, such as SAS 70 and SSAE 16, standards
that many of its clients demand.
“We view JAMS as more than a job scheduler. We think of it as a process automation
tool,” says Senior UNIX Administrator, Doug Botimer. The company has leveraged JAMS
to eliminate outsourced monitoring, give granular security privileges to its diverse
application users, streamline server administration tasks, and provide comprehensive
auditing data. “The cost savings are significant,” says Botimer.
“Product development at MVP extends well beyond technical capabilities,” says VP
of Marketing, David Kluskiewicz. “Our customers discover us based on those capabilities,
but they choose to work with us because our products solve real business issues.
Compliance with accounting standards and costly outsourcing arrangements are two
business issues that JAMS helps solve on a regular basis,” he says.
