Platform-Specific Vs. Technology Independent: A Scheduler or a Agent?

1 06 2010

The key to solving both IT and business issues is to simplify and complement your existing job schedulers by deploying vendor-independent technology across the enterprise. This technology enables you to integrate with your existing schedulers and provides a more comprehensive view of your IT infrastructure.  Vendor-independent technology enables people to work across platforms without specialization, standardizing processes and consolidating tools, improving IT maturity while significantly reducing hard and soft costs.

A simplified job scheduling environment using vendor-independent technology.

For example, suppose Scheduler A needs to communicate with three different backend applications. The cost of purchasing agents for those backend applications from Vendor A is cost prohibitive. Consequently, IT decides to use vendor-independent technology to complement the existing scheduler, enabling Scheduler A to communicate with all three backend applications at a much lower cost.

A key benefit to this approach is that you can leverage your existing investment in Scheduler A at reduced risk, cost and effort. Additionally, vendor-independent technology increases your business’s ability to support emerging technologies such as service-oriented architecture and other Web-based technologies.
