Modern Automation That Turns Your IT Vision Into Reality

Escape Your Aging and Costly Job Scheduling

There is no better time to make the switch away from TWS jobs, TWS mainframe, IBM Tivoli Netcool or Tivoli Workload Scheduler. These old schedulers simply aren’t built to meet the needs of modern digital businesses. IBM Tivoli workload automation was born in the 1970s – and it is showing its age. From complex licensing requirements to manual processes, nickel-and-dime add-ons to sky-high TCO, Tivoli is an automation dinosaur that can’t keep up with the high volume and dynamic scheduling required by your most important business applications.

Redwood Has a Proven Migration Approach

Redwood’s reliable processes and advanced migration tools make for a smooth transition from existing workload automation tools and job schedulers to RunMyJobs. Our migration team will help lead your strategy to ensure a seamless experience.

Step 1: Configuration

We assign a dedicated team, conduct a thorough analysis of your existing processes, and identify a phased migration plan that starts with your organization’s low-risk processes, allowing your teams to gain confidence in the migration process.

Step 2: Data Import

We start with a non-production environment to safely import and test your existing workload automations by using proprietary Mercury conversion tools to efficiently copy over your workload automations and give your teams hands-on experience.

  • Auto import using proven tools for Control-M, Autosys, Automic and more
  • Hands-on value enablement

Step 3: Test & Go Live

We verified all processes with acceptance testing and QA testing. Once it’s approved, we will move individual process automations into production. We deliver results by using our agreed-upon phasing plan and go-live checklist.

  • Acceptance & QA testing
  • Systematic production phasing ensures smooth operations

Frequently Asked Questions

What is IBM Tivoli used for?

Tivoli offered software solutions for IT management including scheduling and infrastructure management tools. Tivoli Workload Scheduler was an early workload automation (WLA) solution that is widely regarded as “legacy”. Tivoli was purchased by IBM in 1996 and the Tivoli brand was discontinued in 2013. Today, many enterprises have migrated to WLA solutions designed to manage cloud-based workflows. See what you can achieve with Redwood.

How do I know if I need an alternative to Tivoli?

Many organizations will migrate to new workload automation solutions as their data centers become more complex. Legacy automation tools require custom scripts and are too unreliable to easily scale. Integration can become a challenge as well as organizations require new tools and technologies that aging WLA solutions weren’t designed for. See what you can achieve with Redwood.

Is it easy to migrate to Redwood from IBM Tivoli?

Yes, Redwood makes it easy to migrate from legacy systems including IBM Tivoli products. Redwood works with partners to ensure quick, reliable implementations and also provides hands-off upgrades, performance health checks, consultations and more, so your team can maximize ROI sooner rather than later.
