Now everything has dependencies and nothing runs out of order.” - Rick Miller, Manager of Technical Support
Seminole Electric Cooperative is one of the largest electric power generation and transmission facilities in the United States. Initially, Seminole would run its Dynamics AX batch jobs at 11:00 PM, in the hopes that other processes would be done by the time Dynamics jobs started. A Thursday backup that included weekly consolidation of several databases frequently ran long, causing Dynamics jobs to fail. The Seminole team would often spend Friday mornings troubleshooting and re-running jobs.
By leveraging triggers in JAMS, Seminole eliminated issues caused by long-running jobs and were able to dynamically connect Dynamics jobs to other processes. Now, Dynamics jobs run based on the completion of other processes; and, dependencies ensure that jobs won’t start until all of their prerequisites are complete.
