Alinta Energy brings together batch processes for IT operations, analysis and reporting with JAMS Job Scheduler from MVP Systems Software.

31 January 2013 – MVP Systems Software, Inc., a leading provider of enterprise job scheduling and workload automation software, announced today that Australian energy provider Alinta Energy has selected JAMS Job Scheduler as its core automation solution. Alinta supplies electricity and natural gas to 700,000 homes and business across Australia. It also operates nine power stations across Australia and New Zealand.

Alinta Energy joins the ranks of hundreds of companies worldwide that trust JAMS Job Scheduler to run critical batch processes and scheduled tasks across distributed IT environments. With JAMS in place, the company brings together a diverse array of processes it has accumulated over the course of more than a decade of acquisitions. Alinta now manages batch jobs for all its business units through a single centralized automation solution.

JAMS Job Scheduler and MVP’s comprehensive customer support system met the requirements defined by Alinta during the selection process. Ease of use, extensibility with .NET, and compatibility across the company’s UNIX and Windows systems set JAMS apart from competing products.

Following its implementation of centralized automation with JAMS, Alinta has been able to shift many of its overnight batch processing tasks to run throughout the day. As a result, reliable, on-time and up-to-date data can be delivered quickly to each of the company’s business units across all geographic locations.

According to one member of Alinta’s technology team, “JAMS is definitely assisting us in providing up-to-date information to our business users on a regular basis while reducing IT maintenance efforts. JAMS has become a significant part of our daily processing and is a key contributor to improvements in efficiency, automation, and data integration.”

“Companies growing through acquisition face a common challenge of having to quickly integrate batch processes created in different environments,” notes David Kluskiewicz, VP Marketing at MVP. “JAMS was designed to manage and schedule tasks created in nearly any environment, so companies can quickly and easily expand critical workflows to accommodate new processes.”
