Stater not only wanted to move their core batch scheduling system to a Windows platform, but also needed to centrally manage all of these decentralized tasks and processes.
Jupiter is a fund management group, with institutional and retail clients in the UK, Europe, and the Asia Pacific region. They were using a mixture of SQL Agent, Windows Task Scheduler, ad-hoc PowerShell Scripts, and Biztalk to run over 1,000 EDM, FTP, and ETL processes across hundreds of servers. The decentralized processing meant Jupiter had to spend considerable manual time just to monitor what was running, ensure processes were secure, and verify that they were compliant.
With JAMS, Jupiter’s processes are managed and visible from a single console. The run-time encryption, native history logging and audit trail, and Active Directory integration in JAMS ensure Jupiter’s processes run securely. JAMS has given the business room to scale from 1,000 to 36,000 daily processes spread across CashView batch jobs, It Ops, SCOM Alerting, Trading Systems, BI, Managed Fund Accounting, and even API-based self-service jobs that business users can launch from a SharePoint site.
