JAMS brings automation and order to repetitive SQL jobs. JAMS SQL Scheduler helps data-driven organizations use SQL to its full potential without costly investments in database management tools and personnel. DBAs who employ centralized workload automation with JAMS are able to:
- Schedule, audit, and analyze job activity across every SQL server
- Provide self-serve access for specific SQL jobs, to specific business users
- Notify and be notified when critical SQL processes face delays or issues
Key Benefits of An Integrated SQL Server Job Scheduler
- Enable cross-platform, event-driven scheduling by executing an SQL Server job on a Windows platform that can trigger a job to begin on another
- React to events external to SQL server, such as file arrivals or changes, processes starting or ending, and SNMP traps
- Check for conditions which must be met before a job executes, such as the availability of a SQL Server
- Direct scheduling or your SSIS packages
- Free up your Database Administrators for more complex tasks by moving the scheduling of SQL Server jobs to the Operations or a Production Control area
- Assign scheduling exceptions, such as run time range and non-working days, to a job’s regular schedule
- Meet Service Level Agreements with monitors for job underruns, overruns, and late starts
- Access job logs and audit histories for troubleshooting
- Receive immediate alerts if a SQL Server job fails, runs longer than normal, or is late to start so that you can fix the error quickly
- Set up and schedule a single SQL Server job that runs on multiple servers, simplifying and streamlining the scheduling process.
- Quickly comply with audits and regulatory requirements

WHY MOVE ON FROM SQL SERVER AGENT?
The benefit of native schedulers like SQL Server Agent is that they’re free and already come included with your software. But the lack of enterprise features in SQL Server Agent can be limiting and end up costing you.
Without the ability to run jobs across multiple platforms, you’re limited to batch and SQL-based automation. Plus, there are no ways to configure schedules when jobs have more advanced requirements like run times of every other week, on a specific date, or for a set number of days.

Convert SQL Jobs with Ease
JAMS includes native utilities to migrate and organize SQL Agent jobs regardless of the number of jobs, servers or SQL versions you employ. Once converted – a process that takes seconds per job – you can apply dozens of new properties to schedule and trigger jobs according to the unique requirements of your enterprise.
Drive Business Risks Out of the Datacenter
JAMS security helps highly regulated businesses close off workaround routes that many applications use to access SQL data. JAMS automation focuses on requirements that are common to all enterprise platforms and applications: security, version control, auditability and usability. Leveraging JAMS ensures that batch automation is aligned with the same standards you established when you implemented SQL Server.
Southwest Power Pool took advantage of the ability to run any kind of script in JAMS. They leveraged JAMS to run their batch scripts, SQL SSIS packages, PowerShell scripts and C# code all within the larger context of their enterprise workflows.
Uptime and on-time refreshes are critical for companies moving at the speed of retail business. When Windows Task Scheduler could no longer keep up, SharkNinja knew it was time to implement workload automation software. The requirements were simple – rapid implementation, and a robust out-of-the-box feature set.
Hosting critical applications and business processes on multiple platforms had created a variety of pressure points for UVA Health’s workload automation tools. Failures and delays caused by the shortcomings of these tools were unacceptable.
