Workload Scheduler 9.4 was released in December 2016, the first release in the new HCL era. Workload Scheduler has been powered by the IBM-HCL partnership, providing new capabilities that streamline continuous delivery in your company through better auditing.
You face challenges every day to have an up-to-date production environment to work with. When you are notified about an error, it's no fun trying to detect the cause of the problem from lists of scheduling changes introduced by various actors -and trying to understand why on earth they made a change in the first place!
The auditing capability will tell you not only WHO made the change, but also WHY the change was made. And after you’ve detected the who, why, and when, you can open a comparison viewer and quickly identify the WHAT.
When pushing a change into production environment, you need a release management process that is simple and reliable. Now you can automate and schedule the development, testing and promotion into production of an application or business process, and keep track of different versions. You always have the option to roll back to a previous version should something go wrong.
Workload Scheduler’s auditing capability can also integrate with external applications. The opening of an incident in ServiceNow can be triggered following an event such as a failed process, an unavailable workstation, or any custom event. Then, you can track the entire lifecycle of the incident from the Dynamic Workload Console.
