_beta job|z
Enterprise Job Manager
(Beta 92 EJM)

We connect worlds: _beta job|z conveniently connects all your distributed servers and the applications hosted there (e.g. SAP) with the mainframe.

Control your automated processes across all relevant platforms while saving costs at the same time. We support any mainframe scheduler and all common operating system platforms (Windows, Linux, Unix, IBM System i and IBM Z).

_beta job|z replaces Beta 92 Enterprise Job Manager EJM.

Expand the Reach of Your Mainframe Workload Automation Solution

  • Boost the power of your server systems by implementing integrated dynamic workload balancing.
  • A high level of system stability is guaranteed thanks to automatic failover management and high tolerance to system failures or network interruptions.
  • Automate application processes and servers by means of event-based scheduling.
  • Reduce your mainframe operating overhead by delegating workload tasks to distributed systems using smart agents.
  • Integrate SAP systems and additional applications with your complex automation workflows (among the mainframe, SAP and distributed servers).
  • Use _beta job|z integrated file transfer functions to simplify data transfer jobs.
  • Provide admins with _beta control, a convenient tool for controlling batch processes based on a web interface.

Come together Part I - The Tales of Mainframe Island - The Integration of IWS and EJM

This is a video presentation on the integration of IWS and EJM. This is a story about the batch job processing of a typical but imaginary data center, which may have happened somewhere in this way or something similar.

Extend Your Mainframe Scheduler by Adding an Agile Agent Network

Cross-Platform Job Scheduling

Batch job automation under z/OS in centralized as well as distributed IT landscapes is what makes the agent network so attractive. Whatever the task at hand – SAP transactions as part of your month-end closing process or outsourcing the batch workload to non-z/OS systems – the powerful agent network provides you with a single point of control for just-in-time batch job management.

  • Faster integration with IT processes thanks to a powerful script engine (incl. Windows Powershell support)

Rapid Application Provisioning

_beta job|z allows your batch workload to be distributed among distributed servers while controlling it centrally via the mainframe and z/OS scheduler. The key benefit is that this makes it very simple to connect a large range of applications operated under Unix, Linux and Windows with the centralized automation process.

  • Asynchronous communication between the agent und z/OS scheduler reduces the job scheduler load.
  • Fully automatic application control based on event triggering
  • Integrated managed file transfer

Application Automation Using Event Control

Moreover, business applications such as ERP or CRM can communicate with _beta job|z agents, allowing them to execute processes or transactions on the mainframe. Depending on your requirements, either the applications control the scheduler, or the scheduler controls the application. Both transaction methods offer high availability thanks to failover scenarios. With IBM Workload Scheduler (IWS/TWS), the event parameters are controlled directly via the exit interface.

Automating SAP® Systems

_beta job|z is frequently used in combination with SAP®. It delivers a powerful command set custom-designed for the direct automation of multiple SAP® systems. Batch job monitoring takes place directly in _beta job|z.

For many years, we employed a mix of different schedulers. While we could have continued to work with these distributed solutions, we wanted a central tool that can interface with the IWS.
