High-Frequency Mainframe Jobs in Discovery

Traditional schedulers are not designed to handle jobs in short intervals over the long term. This makes the planning of data center jobs a highly time-consuming affair. The daily plan thus becomes very volatile, which results in error-prone process chains and can lead to an overall slump in performance.

Bring more efficiency to your mainframe operations

HF jobs allow you to repeatedly run the defined Beta 92 EJM jobs on distributed platforms (SAP, Unix/Linux, Windows), for instance once every 3 minutes for 6 hours, once every 5 minutes until 6 p.m., or once every 30 seconds 100 times in a row.

This results in shorter waiting times and reduced process chain cycle times. Corresponding scheduler resource savings can amount to up to 30%, and application maintenance optimization can deliver a qualitative and quantitative improvement of your data center operations of up to 15%.

Our experts assist you from the implementation stage all the way to ensuring the smooth and optimized operation of all functions.

Contents and Benefits

  • Faster scheduler response times
  • Improved overview of remaining applications
  • Shorter production cycles
