Scheduling and Workload Automation
Since 2008, KMD (Kommunedata) in Denmark has relied on Workload Automation Technology from Stonebranch. However, until now, the distributed batch processing remained untouched. Driven by increasing license costs, challenges in handling, finding and managing job output and the heterogeneous IBM agents portfolio the company made the switch to Stonebranch. KMD had been using Fault Tolerant Agents (FTA), SAP extended agents (x-agents) and z-centric agents. The company needed to update the existing environment to improve visibility, simplify usage and enhance operational efficiency.
Coop Denmark achieves near-100% workflow automation by switching to Stonebranch solution. Coop Denmark operates 1,200 stores with 38,000 employees. It has a 38% share of the Danish grocery trade. The company uses a mainframe and many distributed, open systems to process its data. As it grew, it acquired smaller grocery chains and needed to integrate their IT systems as well.
JN Data Streamlined and standardized its job scheduling environment thanks to Stonebranch. “We can now run operations in a standardized way. Both Jyske Bank and Nykredit can be handled with the same tools, ensuring that all job scheduling is secure and compliant. We can be more productive instead of dealing with maintenance and production issues,” says Kim Kvist Hansen, Section Manager for Operations Planning.
