Frequently Asked Questions

What does JAMS Scheduler do?

JAMS Scheduler is an automated job management tool that provides scheduling and monitoring capabilities for batch processes executed in the JAMS environment. JAMS was originally developed in 1985 by MVP Systems Software before being purchased by HelpSystems in 2018. JAMS installations can be complex and the software is known to have a heavy footprint. As a result, many organizations have shifted towards cloud-based or cloud-native workload automation solutions such as Redwood. See what you can achieve with Redwood.
