Feeling the limitations of your legacy scheduler? Struggling to keep up with the dynamic nature of your automation environment? The first step is admitting it’s time for a change. But the next move can feel like a giant leap—migrating all the batch processes, jobs, and workflows that keep your business running. With JAMS, you get a flexible and straightforward solution that lets you break free from your complicated and costly legacy scheduler.
Benefits of Migrating to JAMS
Rapid Migration and Onboarding
Make the transition to JAMS quickly and efficiently. Proven services and utilities make it easy to regain control of your existing jobs defined in your legacy scheduler, migrate them, and start seeing an immediate return on investment.
Reduced Maintenance Costs
Reduce maintenance costs with easy-to-understand licensing options that are aligned with the batch jobs you need to run and the business applications you need to automate.
Reduce reliance on single-product specialists and make powerful workload automation accessible—and manageable—for your entire IT team.
All the Right Features
Breathe new life into critical business processes with a complete set of tools right out of the box—job monitoring, alerting, workflow design, auditing, and reporting.
Maintaining an outdated version of your legacy scheduler may actually cost more over the short- and long-term. Ensure you are keeping up with the changing IT landscape and modernizing your approach.
Cloud Requirements & Support
As organizations move to cloud and hybrid environments, cloud support should be clearly defined. Make sure cloud readiness is part of your vendor support strategy as it is with JAMS.
JAMS Conversion Utility
Our goal is to make your transition to JAMS quick, efficient, and painless. Our utility can pull the core properties—schedule, exceptions, credentials, and job source—from popular scheduling tools directly into JAMS. The conversion utility, along with our migration services, help you get up and running quickly to start seeing an immediate return on investment.
Complexities in your workflows? No problem!
Some properties like complex dependencies can be difficult to automatically map, especially if you’ve implemented workarounds in your tool. Our utility identifies these exceptions so they can be addressed separately, helping you regain control of your jobs so you can automate smarter.
