We’ve talked a lot about the benefits – easy implementation, scalability, flexibility, efficiency – of switching to a modern SaaS-based workload automation solution and how Redwood RunMyJobs® scheduling can maximize these benefits.
Now these benefits have been recognized by independent experts as well: Enterprise Management Associates® (EMA™) has named Redwood as Value Leader and RunMyJobs as the Best workload automation SaaS Solution in its 2019 EMA Radar™ for Workload Automation report.
According to EMA, RunMyJobs is the best WLA SaaS offering available because it is the only such solution that is ”purpose-built for that delivery model”.
Legacy workload automation tools that are simply lifted and shifted to the cloud may become cheaper to run but they retain their inherent limitations.
RunMyJobs overcomes those limitations of legacy workload automation solutions. It takes advantage of the attributes of cloud architecture to cut across silos and provide the kind of coordinated approach to processes your business needs.
It supports unique business logic so processes work in concert with each other. In this way, it avoids the accumulation of workarounds (or technical debt) that multiple legacy schedulers bring and overcomes the limitations of ‘new day’ scheduling.
As EMA president and COO Dan Twing explains: “Since it’s built from the ground up for the cloud it’s easy to use RunMyJobs to integrate applications seamlessly into next-generation operating models while covering transitional needs today.”
With no need for workarounds or multiple tools, the EMA Radar report also cites the ability of RunMyJobs “to provide simplified operational management at a low total cost of ownership”.
This low TCO is demonstrated by chipset manufacturer AMD, which has saved $200,000 on on-premises data center costs each year by using RunMyJobs to integrate automated processes across its SAP® environment, as well as other areas including shipping, payroll, enterprise data warehouse, managed file transfer and cloud applications.
As for the abilities of RunMyJobs, “there’s no end to what’s possible”, according to Bhanu Pratap Singh, an IT Architecture manager at AMD.
Don’t let the transformation potential of moving to the cloud be limited by legacy job scheduling tools. RunMyJobs provides the benefits of modern workload automation combined with the power of the cloud. All of which makes migrating to Redwood a no brainer.
