Most IT and business processes are executed via batching. And as your business grows, so do the volume and complexity of your batch workloads. That's why orderly, reliable sequencing and management of process execution is so essential to IT management -- and scheduling is its nucleus. You also need to be able to expose your batch jobs as services that can be reused to create new business processes or change existing ones. This article shows you how to use the Web services interface in IBM® Tivoli® Workload Scheduler Version 8.3 to expose any kind of Tivoli Workload Scheduler batch job -- including job control languages (JCLs), scripts, executables, and SAP R/3 process chains -- as a service. You'll also learn how to use Tivoli Workload Scheduler from IBM WebSphere® Process Server to create customer business processes in a Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA).
