Windows Job Scheduler
JAMS centralizes batch processing in a single, easy-to-use interface, where Windows jobs can be extended with additional properties, and linked together with non-Windows processes to create cross-platform workflows.
JAMS enables organizations that leverage Windows to:
- Preserve workflows developed with Windows Task Scheduler
- Resolve service issues quickly with reliable and actionable alerts
- Enhance Windows batch processes with powerful business logic, such as custom calendars, exception handling, file dependencies and more.
Choose a More Robust Windows Job Scheduler
Whether you’re running Windows XP or Windows 10, you might be using Windows Task Scheduler to automate tasks on your server. Using Windows job scheduling keeps costs down because it’s included with your hardware purchase. But if your goal is to build a more efficient enterprise from the ground up, is a native scheduler the way to achieve your automation goals?
Windows Task Scheduler only offers limited time-based scheduling options, which do not allow you to build and automate more complex tasks that could streamline your business processes. What’s more, each individual Windows machine will have a separate Windows Task Scheduler, so you will have no way to control or integrate the various automated tasks that are happening on each box. As your environment becomes more complex and expands to require enterprise-wide processes, managing Windows job scheduling becomes too labor intensive.
Bridge the Gap between Scheduled Tasks and the Business Users that Depend on Them
Converting Windows tasks to JAMS jobs puts automation into the hands of the people that need it most and reduces the burden on your IT personnel.
- Let non-IT users schedule and monitor their own jobs
- Capture the change history of every job definition
- Get aggregate insights into the entire schedule of jobs so you can identify issues before they impact individual jobs
