One of the biggest challenges facing IT departments is how to effectively manage the myriad of complex tasks and processes that run across a technically diverse and disparate IT landscape. Companies with fewer than 1,000 employees typically run 20 or more critical applications—and larger organisations upwards of 700, on average.
These applications run critical tasks and processes that are essential to the company’s ongoing daily operation. This also applies to other crucial systems like ERPs, databases, physical and cloud-based servers, and mainframe or legacy systems.
This leaves companies wanting to manage these processes with two options:
Use the internal application scheduling, native tools like Windows Task Scheduler, SQL Server Agent and inhouse developed scripts.
Implement an enterprise job scheduler tool, which companies can use to centralise and manage all their IT tasks and processes in one central management console that is accessible through a single pane of glass.
