JAMS University

Training and Professional Development

JAMS University provides technology professionals with the skills needed to orchestrate workload automation across multiple platforms and applications. Trainees will learn how to take batch jobs that run across a variety of technology siloes and bring them into a centralized management solution. Once trainees master basic principles of automation, they will learn to combine individual jobs into resilient, multi-step workflows that help enterprises maximize the value of technology investments.

JAMS University offers training for four distinct roles: Administrator, Job Creator, Operator, and Programmer.


Sessions in the Administrator concentration prepare administrators and their teams to install and configure JAMS for an enterprise.

Job Creator

Sessions in the Job Creator concentration cover the fundamentals of job creation to give users the ability to build critical jobs and batch processes.


Sessions in the Operator concentration focus on defining, managing, and monitoring jobs.


Sessions in the Programmer concentration are for technical users who would like to leverage automation programmatically, from within scripts and custom applications.

Focused, Hands-on Training

A typical engagement consists of Administrator and Operator sessions delivered remotely over the course of 3 days. Each session takes 3 hours to complete. Trainees will work on a large-scale demo environment.

Dive deeper into job creation as you explore the various properties of a job, like schedule items including triggers, prerequisites, final status, event handling, and more.
Take an advanced look into parameters, variables, queues, and resources. We’ll then take you through the specifics of calendars and other important pieces of job scheduling to complete your in-depth knowledge of the parts of a job.
Now that we’ve covered the fundamentals, this session will put everything together to show you how to create example workflows and sequences.
Operator Training
Session 1
Master the tools that keep jobs running smoothly. You’ll learn how to monitor, collect, and distribute your jobs’ performance data and see examples of various monitor configurations used to manage jobs running in a variety of environments. Trainees will develop the skills needed to produce static reports and dynamic dashboards.
