Cisco’s Workload Automation Solution incorporates advanced predictive and historical analytics to enhance and extend decision making for enterprise–wide business processing

In speaking with many users of workload automation solutions, we continue to hear a need for better understanding and efficient management of workload performance.

Cisco’s Intelligent Automation Business Unit and Terma Software Labs Inc today announced the integration of Cisco Tidal Enterprise Scheduler and JAWS Workload Analytics. The combined solution will enable users of Cisco Tidal Enterprise Scheduler to further align their workload processing environments with the needs of the business by leveraging JAWS to visualize workload performance as it relates to Service Level Agreements (SLA’s). In addition, users will be able to dramatically reduce business processing risks by taking advantage of predictive analytics to understand future performance, enabling a highly proactive workload processing environment.

“In speaking with many users of workload automation solutions, we continue to hear a need for better understanding and efficient management of workload performance.” said Torsten Volk, Senior Analyst at Enterprise Management Associates. “Tidal Enterprise Scheduler is at the heart of Cisco’s Intelligent Automation Strategy. JAWS will extend the functionality adding a layer of sophisticated analytics to ensure on-time SLA driven job completion.”

Workload Automation is a key enabler to business success in today’s enterprise. As data center complexity grows, SLA delivery times shorten and business demands becomes more event-driven, the need to automate is imperative. However, only automation with historic and real-time environmental visibility can produce the requisite infrastructure awareness necessary to ensure business processes complete in accordance with defined SLAs. Cisco Tidal Enterprise Scheduler users will benefit from the following functionality in JAWS:

  •     Performance Intelligence (Predictive, Real Time, Historical, Business)
  •     SLA Assurance
  •     Critical Path Visualization
  •     Machine & Resource Correlation
  •     Flexible Reporting

“Extra Technology has been a long time partner and technology subject matter expert for both Cisco Tidal Enterprise Scheduler and JAWS”, said Mark Mannion, Managing Director of Extra Technology Limited. “Our Cisco workload automation customers have been asking for extended analytics, prediction, and SLA awareness to enable them to better manage workload performance. JAWS is a very mature, feature rich solution, and a perfect fit for their needs.”
