MVP Systems Software Partners with GT Software to Deliver Comprehensive Legacy Modernization Solutions
Harry Reisenleiter, VP Communications
GT Software’s NeoBatch® now supports rapid conversion of JCL batch jobs to cross-platform JAMS Jobs.
1 April 2014 – MVP Systems Software, Inc., a leading provider of enterprise job scheduling and workload automation software, and GT Software, the leader in helping enterprise organizations unify business information across any platform, data format or programming language, have partnered to deliver a comprehensive solution for migrating batch jobs to the Windows platform.
“Moving mainframe batch processing to the distributed Windows platform reaps significant savings by reducing both the time required for batch processing, as well as the required mainframe MIPS capacity,” says Wilson Rains, VP Global Alliances.
MVP Systems Software and GT Software each bring more than 25 years of experience improving the efficiency and agility of technology-driven organizations. Both companies recognize the importance of their customers’ long-established mainframe scheduling tools and seek to make the transition to a distributed platform clear and controlled.
By leveraging JAMS Job Scheduler within its NeoBatch application, GT Software customers can easily view the scheduling logic, security configurations and load balancing properties of JCL jobs that are to be converted as part of their legacy modernization process. In addition, they gain insight into each batch job’s properties when converted to JAMS. The conversion process from JCL to JAMS maintains all the reliability of mainframe processing, then extends it with JAMS properties to support triggers, dependencies, auditing and alerting. JAMS utilizes NeoBatch’s API to submit JCL jobs through a local JAMS agent installed on the customer’s NeoBatch server.
“GT Software’s forward-thinking approach to mainframe conversion aligns closely with the way we view workload automation,” says David Kluskiewicz, VP of Marketing for MVP Systems Software. “Workload automation should not be an afterthought. It should be integrated ‘by design’ at the time an organization establishes a technology platform or adds a new application. By including JAMS automation early in the legacy modernization process, GT Software puts its customers on a fast track to efficient automation.”
