We are glad to announce IBM Tivoli Workload Scheduler 8.6 for Distributed release!
IBM® Tivoli® Workload Scheduler V8.6 delivers:
- An extensible mechanism for application plug-ins that gives you an easy and visual way to create jobs on new applications, enabling business users to be more autonomous in the definition and management of their own set of jobs.
- Auditing of previous model definitions of workload that saves the sequence of changes, spots the latest changes that might have caused disruption, and knows how to go back to past versions.
- Workloads on a mainframe platform, from a Tivoli Workload Scheduler master, integrating the mainframe actions in the distributed flows.
- Dynamic Workload Automation to exploit virtualization and dynamic job routing with the new simplifying concept of "pool". The pool allows the administrator to deploy dynamic workload automation for availability and optimization purposes, and stops relying on delicate and intricate high availability mechanisms.
