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.
