This week, we welcome GT Software to our network of Legacy Modernization partners. Their team has been helping companies optimize and modernize mainframe infrastructures since 1982. We’ve partnered with them specifically to aid IT departments as they migrate JCL (Job Control Language) jobs to distributed .NET environments. While creating each statement (the old “card”) and double-checking your “DD” syntax was a bit of pain, JCL jobs ran reliably, for years. It can be difficult to leave behind those tried and true systems, but, both considerable hardware cost savings and the expanding benefits of cross-platform workflows make strong cases for modernizing mainframe infrastructure.
We’ve worked with GT Software to integrate JAMS into its NeoBatch application. With this integration GT’s customers not only retain the reliability of the JCL jobs they grew accustomed to, but they also gain access to powerful automation features such as triggers, dependencies, auditing and alerting – features that JAMS Job Scheduler has brought to IT pros managing a wide range of platforms and applications.
