OUTDATED JOB SCHEDULERS CAN’T KEEP UP

Workload automation needs to meet current digital business requirements and be easy to connect across your diverse enterprise. Solutions need to be designed and built with the complexities of modern enterprise IT in mind.

That’s why Tidal workload automation, which first emerged in the 1970s, is no longer up to the job. Its age is showing, with complex licensing requirements, manual processes, endless add-ons and sky-high TCO. Tidal just can’t keep up with the high volume and dynamic scheduling required by your most important business applications. Now is the time to consider an alternative to Tidal workload automation.
