JAMS Job Scheduler adds cross-platform scheduling, monitoring and alerting to business processes running on z/OS.

Mainframe jobs that have traditionally run in isolation can now be automated and monitored through a single management console.

MVP Systems Software, Inc., a leading provider of enterprise job scheduling and workload automation software, announced today that it has added support for the IBM mainframe to JAMS Job Scheduler. JAMS now offers a comprehensive set of features to manage JCL jobs and link them together with business processes running on distributed systems and in the cloud.

“The latest version of JAMS enables organizations to create and manage job streams that integrate mainframe jobs with jobs running on different platforms, such as Windows, Linux and UNIX,” says David Kluskiewicz, VP Marketing at MVP. “Mainframe jobs that have traditionally run in isolation can now be automated and monitored through a single management console.”

JAMS provides organizations with a secure and highly available connection to the mainframe’s batch processing system. Its enterprise architecture ensures that critical jobs are executed reliably and efficiently. JAMS includes a full suite of utilities for logging errors, generating alerts and maintaining business continuity when unexpected issues, such as network outages, occur.

JAMS enhances mainframe jobs with powerful logic and controls, such as:

  •     File and job dependencies
  •     File and job triggers
  •     Real-time alerting
  •     Parameters
  •     Custom calendars
  •     Granular access
  •     Version control

JAMS supports all versions of the z/OS operating system and requires no modifications to a mainframe’s existing configuration. Users can securely manage mainframe jobs through multiple access points, including a desktop client, web client, .NET SDK and PowerShell module.
