Workload Automation: The Key to Managing Windows Server Sprawl


Many companies use data centers running processes across multiple Windows servers using built-in schedulers instead of automating nightly batch streams on a mainframe. Simple schedulers work well on individual servers with only a handful of tasks, but scheduling becomes more difficult once you include dependencies, such as incoming files, the behavior of other applications, or the completion of business processes on other servers. Workload automation using a job scheduling system can save money and reduce complexity in the long term—read this white paper to learn more about solutions to "server sprawl".
