Silveredge’s customer had a 30 page nightly run list for operations, and a monthly job run to match. The job stream had been developed over years of operations and was prone to human error causing significant impact to their business. We unraveled some 1,000 jobs, found the dependencies, and completely automated the batch processing using IBM Advanced Job Scheduler. The result is a much shorter nightly job processing window with consistent and stable results. The client has saved many thousands of dollars annually due to staff reduction. Additional savings due to business continuity and problem resolution are enormous.
