Task Scheduler Automation
Windows Task Scheduler jobs are limited in their scheduling capabilities and do not provide the ability to be incorporated into end-to-end workflows across servers running various operating systems. ActiveBatch through its Integrated Jobs Library allows these jobs to be sequenced and also triggered by other jobs from Windows as well as non-Windows systems. Task Scheduler jobs, using ActiveBatch, now have the ability to incorporate many of the robust capabilities that ActiveBatch has to offer including monitoring, alerting, advanced date and time scheduling or be triggered by a range of events using our integrated Event Driven Scheduling that include:
- File Triggers
- Web Services
- Microsoft Message Queue
- WMI Events
- System Startup
- VMware Events
- Oracle Database Triggers
Task Scheduler jobs can be managed by ActiveBatch using our Integrated Jobs Library, by dragging the Task Scheduler Job Step, into the work space, and completing a few Dialog boxes identifying the target machine where the Task Scheduler job is located, selecting the job from a drop down list, supplying proper credentials and then incorporating additional jobs steps such as applications, web services, database functions, etc from within the Integrated Jobs Library.
ActiveBatch allows Task Scheduler jobs to execute and be used in work flows across your entire IT environment without the need to create and maintain custom scripts.
Advanced Systems Concepts Professional Services Group also supports the migration of Windows Task Scheduler jobs into ActiveBatch jobs where they can make use of all of the enhanced capabilities that are provided by the ActiveBatch Enterprise Job Scheduling system rather than implementing Windows Task Scheduler in the future.
