Download Solution Brief:
Skybot Scheduler™ is the intuitive, web-based job scheduling solution for your business needs.
With Skybot Scheduler, you can quickly build an event-driven schedule across multiple platforms for coordinated batch processing, cross-system monitoring, and true enterprise automation.
Deploys in Minutes—Not Weeks
Skybot Scheduler is easy to install, set up, and use. You don’t need an expensive on-site implementation team. Skybot Scheduler’s intuitive, graphical interface can be accessed from any web browser, which means you can schedule and monitor your entire operations from virtually anywhere.
Eases Transition & Conversion
The Import Center makes it easy to move jobs and schedules from testing to production for faster implementation and less risk. You can even upload jobs from other sched-ulers and convert them to Skybot Scheduler.
Protects with High Availability
Protect your jobs from unplanned downtime with Skybot Scheduler’s standby server and automatic agent switchover.
Smoothes Your Schedule
Many processes are based on file arrival information or process starts and ends. Agent Event Monitors let you monitor for events and react to them automatically. Your jobs run when they’re supposed to—even when the triggering event is on another server.
Schedule forecasting is critical for running your operations. Just choose the time period and Skybot Scheduler forecasts the expected start time, run time, and prerequisite jobs. Use your forecast to shift the workload, maximize system usage, and determine whether you need upgrades.
Job Suites make it easy to group multiple jobs and manage them as one process with full control to build dependencies based on outside events, jobs, or other Suites. Users are able to reuse jobs across multiple schedules and quickly understand the relationships between processes.
Meet Your Service Level Agreements
With Skybot Scheduler’s built-in notification, you’ll easily meet your SLAs. When a critical process stops or an important job fails, Skybot Scheduler sends an email, text message, or an SNMP trap to open a problem ticket.
Increases Productivity & Efficiency
Skybot Scheduler eliminates hundreds of programming hours needed to run your batch jobs and built-in dependency processing. Just tell Skybot Scheduler how you want the batch job to run and it does the work. You don’t need to bother anyone in the middle of the night because jobs ran out of order.
Satisfies Your Auditors
Skybot Scheduler’s Audit History is a big boost for complying with today’s regulation requirements—Sarbanes-Oxley (SOX), PCI, and HIPAA. It tracks who created a new job or event monitor, who changed a job setup or commands, and who forced a job to run outside its scheduled time.
And, Skybot Scheduler lets you easily create electronic reports for job, agent, and event history; forecasting; and monitoring. Everything you, or an auditor, would want or need to know.
Secures Your Environment
Skybot Scheduler role-based security ensures that your users can access only what they need to perform their jobs. You can secure product functions by department, division, location, customer, and more.
Active Directory® (AD)/LDAP Authorization makes managing users easier for administrators because they can match existing LDAP groups to Skybot Scheduler roles. Users log in to Skybot Scheduler using existing usernames and passwords.
With Skybot Scheduler it’s easy to securely transfer files to remote systems. Simply select a File Transfer System you want to send or receive the file from, and Skybot Scheduler does the rest.
Runs With or Without Cron
It’s easy to run your custom cron scripts because you can import crontabs and convert them to Skybot Scheduler jobs. If you don’t want to convert your cron jobs, you just include them in your Skybot Schedule job commands. And, you can schedule jobs using familiar cron syntax and add event notification so that all processes are monitored for your SLAs.
Informatica® Interface – Quickly build advanced schedules that integrate your PowerCenter® workflows or individual tasks with other IT and business processes.
SAP® Interface – SAP-certified integration with SAP NetWeaver® lets you include SAP jobs, events, and variant changes in your enterprise job stream.
